Sky News | October 2019 Onwards

Midnight til 6am is coming from studio 6 today. I think there maybe some problems with the big screen in the glass box; Anna Jones (at 11pm was) sitting in a different position and the screen is out of vision including on the Press Preview where the guests are usually on the screen.

Early Rundown back to Studio 21 as normal at 6.

9 News Sydney Relocated

Different Covid restrictions on this side of the world. Very few new cases in NSW, Victoria etc, so restrictions being eased. Therefore masks/social distancing aren't required (even if it is good practice).

Where I am in New Zealand, with the exception of the border being closed (except for returning citizens who need to spend 2 weeks in hotel quarantine once they arrive), life is operating as normal, we can go out and about and do what we want with no social distancing/masks required.

Play spot the difference with the Irish one. I can see one change...

Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

The Perry Poole one was a weird case of a special episode as well in which 2 episodes were broadcast on the same night although split by another programme being broadcast (something Cilla Black related i think, if my memory serves me correctly?).


Your memory does indeed serve you correctly - it was the first episode of the second series of The Moment of Truth. Wink Thumbs up

BBC Two 2018 Revamp

Also, today (for Britain, anyway, still the 22nd over here in the US) marks one year since Thought-Provoking 2 was shown for the first time, meaning it's been one year since a regular ident has debuted on Two. I'm suprised there hasn't been a rebrand, let alone a new ident yet. Then again, a few months ago I asked the BBC about 2s idents and the nice person at BBC Complaints said that they're looking into them.
I think the reason I don't get replies is because I'm 5 hours behind most of the forum.

Surprised to find The Avengers on there (complete with ABC idents for the early "rarities") as "presented by ITV", even though the rights are now with StudioCanal. Wonder what they'll do if they ever get hold of Thames programming?


To answer my own question (d'oh!), a couple of 70s Thames programmes have cropped up - The Tomorrow People is "presented by ITV", Quatermass isn't.

BBC Two 2018 Revamp

Ok, I admit I was a bit too hasty in removing all the “inspired by” descriptions! I read the previous page of this thread and intended to just remove that Firecracker reference, but noticed almost every ident description had something similar and none had any sources, so I decided (perhaps too drastically) it was best to just get rid of the lot - it’s always recommended to include a link to an official source with information like that so it doesn’t just turn into an individual editor’s personal opinion on something, but the recent re-addition of most of them (with reworded text) looks to be a good compromise, so a thank you to who did that as it’s fine staying now.

Christmas presentation question

Well it is supposedly a Christmas Special of the Coronavirus Briefing tomorrow, so maybe those who had 4.30pm on the 24th November in the sweepstake might be lucky. Very Happy


Will there be a Christmas version of the opening titles?

BBC FOUR using same ident over and over again

BBC Four's "Music" ident, naturally used to introduce music-based programming, has been used more than the rest of the set by a long shot, dominating Fridays, and leaving the rest of the set to rot. Can't they use any of the other idents before music-based programmes?

The Chase | Beat the Chasers

It's a great week for new chaser names. US chasers are The Professor, The Buzzsaw (yeah, me neither) and The High Roller.
