Hey, early 30s is insulting, I'm still 29
I guess something that can be said about the Steve Ryde era of CITV is even though it was out of vision, it was at least live most of the time. Which isn't the case on any other non-BBC kids channel these days. I know Disney had live OOV continuity into the mid-00s at one point, but it's all pre-recorded, and usually generic "on now, up next" etc. announcements on kids channels now, it's not like they even try to inject any personality into it.
