Are these the new titles that debut on tomorrows classic showings?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRp_kSelSVs


This also shows the village of Esholt albeit briefly. These feature at the end of the opening sequence from 1993 onwards and closing credits but a different shot was used from 1994 onwards.


It's not Esholt that appears in the shot you're talking about, or the 1993 or 94 titles (Esholt doesn't appear at all in the 1993 or 94 titles). The only shot that's actually Esholt in the 1992 titles is that of the Woolpack at the end. The village they use for that wideshot is actually Kettlewell, which is quite a distance from Esholt. In fact, it's not far from Arncliffe, where they shot the location work until 1976. Maybe they thought it looked better on that distant wide shot than the real Esholt?

A rough Google Streetview similar to those in the 1992, 93 and 94 titles is here:

Very special thanks for telling and sharing this. They had us all fooled.

Neither questioned whether it was a homophobic attack. They were simply discussing it as a broader attack on our freedom, as has happened with most attacks before and since.

As it turns out, most of the evidence since then has pointed to it not being a homophobic motivated attack. The killer initially targeted the Disney Springs leisure complex and then EVE Nightclub, but both had a visible, heavy security presence. He ended up at Pulse as a result of a Google search on his phone for “downtown Orlando nightclubs."

But either way, neither Longhurst nor Hartley-Brewer said anything objectionable in my view.


Longhurst lost his temper which was very unprofessional though in this setting.

Birmingham’s CasparCG project again was a trial to see how capable the system was at fitting within existing production kit (and the answer was positive) but roll out elsewhere is on pause because of the other project to replace all kit with a new template. Some other regions are using Caspar for GFX playout replacing other end of life gear, but are not replacing Astons unless they have to.

Is CasparCG something there for long term use or as a stop gap until more firm plans evolve?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

I grew up with CBBC, and most of the shows on there are after my time. I think only 50/50, SMart, the 1996 Dennis and Chucklevision, Newsround and Get Your Own Back are the only shows from "my" era.

No sign of Grange Hill, Byker Grove, Blue Peter, The Animals Of Farthing Wood, Aquilla, The Demon Headmaster, The Queen's Nose, Live & Kicking... I could go on. If that chart is aimed at people who grew up in the 80s and 90s then they've got it badly wrong.


The majority of those shows are from the 2000s, a decade which I was born in. It’s a bit of light hearted fun. A lot of the Children’s BBC and CBBC (not the channel) generation are taking it way too seriously. As seen on here and on Twitter.
