I guess automated Alan will live on in the online draws.

Will be interesting to see if it has any impact on sales - you'd imagine it will as 10 minutes of primetime Saturday night exposure on BBC1 is literally something money can't buy. Imagine they'll be headlines in the Mail and The Sun in the months ahead of how the BBC axing the draw is costing good causes millions.

And with talk in other threads about how BBC1 can't afford a dozen or so decent 30-second idents financially it still makes little sense to me. As much as I'd rather have something like Taboo on a Saturday night than another Nick Knowles quiz I don't see how the cost difference can be justified - it's got to be adding hundreds of thousands of pounds to the Saturday night budget.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Is anyone aware of the future of the Lottery shows such as In it to win it, Who dares wins etc. I don't see any reason why these shows should be cancelled, they could be carried on and just do without the lotto bit! Smile

Brekkie is correct, the rest are in limbo according to Broadcast

Wasn't the closure - sorry moving online - of BBC Three announced as a way of shunting significant amounts in to BBC One drama?

Yes - £50 million to be plunged into a well funded area of BBC ONE.

If you were really wanting to spend savings on closing down BBC THREE, at least instead use it for BBC TWO to allow it to gain back its distinctive personality. Something that's been lost with the launches of the BBC digital channels, and BBC ONE poaching some of TWO's best content.
