-Poor by Adam Boulton - and not the first time this sort of thing has happened with him. Not sure why he's kept around these days - he's not a great presenter, Dermot, Niall and Sophy are all better as pure political presenters and Beth Rigby is a brilliant political editor.
Sky could cope without him in a way they probably couldn't a decade or so back.

While I definitely don't think he should be presenting, think there's still a place for Boulton in a 'special correspondent/contributor' role (eg; similiar to Tom Brokaw's role for NBC) whereby he would appear on a semi-regular basis to contribute to their coverage of big political events

Also if you look at James' site, he designed a proposal for a new look Newsnight which aligns it more with the BBC Two brand.
Check it out as it's a very good design proposal and I think it should be chosen for the new look.

Thanks for that I agree it is rather nice. How you can say it should be chosen for the new look is beyond me though when you don’t know what the other options are.

My guess is it hasn’t been chosen as it wouldn’t have been posted.

Why? Isn't it good to let youngsters know this kind of information so it normalises it and helps them grow up with more information and albeit a bit more confidence in themselves? Same as being taught it in schools. I don't get why people are so prudish over the human body. Some would freak out over what some other countries show as part of children's TV. One has a show that has two characters who are literally a lump of poo and a pool of urine.


I hope your not clamping me in with those prud! especially since I Praised for such content. I agree there is alot of stupid prud people about.


And they say education standards are slipping...

I was a bit surprised this episode of Ouch has even been broadcast, rather brave, but praise for such content, Well done.

The one thing that I don’t like about this is the logo itself. Not that I dislike the font or the CBBC logo, but together it doesn’t seem right, maybe it’s the differing heights where an upper case version could have improved it.


Maybe if the 'n' was capitalised or the whole 'newsround'?
