I don't think I've ever witnessed anything so amateur in all my life.


The sound of someone who's never seen Sheffield Live at their best Smile Did That's Hampshire manage to stay on air throughout their first bulletin? If so, they're one-up on SLTV!

That said, the way things have turned out, I'm wondering if SLTV have got the right idea (badly implemented) of running it as a community station rather than a commercial enterprise.
It's spelt AERIAL!

It appears That's Hampshire 'may' have launched this evening to no fanfare.


I don't think I've ever witnessed anything so amateur in all my life. It's blatantly obvious that the bulletins are pre-recorded. The reporters sound so incredibly boring., one report went out absolutely silent, and the presenter keeps telling people to go online for more information, even though their website isn't online.

An absolute joke.

I think some members of this forum could do a better job at the graphics (and even running a damn news bulletin) than that. Absolutely atrocious.
Lurker!

Some quality tabloidism in that article. "Lorraine Kelly is being REPLACED on her own show" was one of the lines of the article about her being off for two weeks. Who writes this sort of clickbaity rubbish, and, more importantly, why ?
Mammal extraordinaire.

You do not get anywhere in this life by sitting on your ass doing nothing. It does no harm in emailing and seeing what comes of it. I have had plenty of replies from production companies over the years when I have asked for details. So, if you don't ask, you don't get. No harm done.


I recently attempted to get in touch with Sky News online to see if the YouTube live stream could be at 25fps instead of the current motion judder 30fps that they stream with. The email bounced back as nobody has checked the inbox!

With the exception of North Wales, Made have sensibly got a selection of licences in major metropolitan cities which have a viable population for them to market to advertisers.


When you actually look at the details, the Clywd (North Wales) licence makes perfect sense. The station is effectively a sub-region of Liverpool and run from there (only 20 miles away). The 30 minutes of Welsh programming per week required for the North Wales licence is made at Made in Cardiff and produced/narrated by their Welsh speaking station manager Daniel Glyn. A Welsh language programme sits nicely on the Cardiff schedules too, politically if nothing else.

The resourcefulness of the whole Made operation is what I admire most and the above is a shining example of that.


Absolutely, it'd be a licence that would be unviable otherwise.
