So that's where BBC Three's audience went?

I take offence to that, I was BBC Three's audience and I'm the polar opposite to them.

Ah, you're part of Generation Snowflake... 'I take offence at you taking offence' Very Happy

Laughing Laughing Laughing I don't get offended much, apart from being lumped in with the likes of these absolute idiots

Give them some credit, at least they shot landscape, and not in numptie portrait


They probably would have if they weren't using those DSLRs.


The only way to get an apostrophe in there is to purposefully type it. Quite tragic.

Not very surprising given how eloquently they spoke. Who ever created that video was probably getting extremely aggravated at the autocorrect thinking "I know it's news with an apostrophe!"

Although to give them the benefit of the doubt maybe they were trying to use the possessive form of news as "news'" but in that case they should have added the word output. However I do not think they are bright enough to know what a plural possessive noun is.

Now that I have criticized them I should add a disclaimer: I realize that I may not always come across as grammatically correct online but this is a message board and not a term paper. Additionally I would like to add that, as an American, certain words are spelled differently from the rest of the English world - such as using a "c" or "z" instead of an "s".

They all look like absolute idiots - and they should all be locked up - the BBC's security needs to be tighter, though, definately!


Back in the 70s and 80s they'd have been manhandled and literally booted out of the building. In this day and age you can't even physically touch them, just politely ask them to leave. Decide for yourself whether or not that's a good thing !

And of course this sort of thing did happen a couple of times in the 80s, once the infamous Six o' Clock News incident and once when a newsreader, Jan Leeming, was attacked while walking through the newsroom

It's hilarious watching everyone here talk about kids half their age with a different culture and a different outlook on life.

I mean, yeah, ok, I don't ever remember being like that when I was their age, but I understand that things evolve and change.

I don't expect them to know the ins and outs of technical stuff around them or whatever.

It's unquestionably a good thing.
