Just noticed that QI will be recorded in Studio TC1 on the Thursdays of the week SNT are in the studio the following Saturday - that is a fast turnaround for the sets, as QI films two episodes a day.

Tomorrow's Last Leg for Channel 4 will come from Elstree Studios, as it was impossible for them to film live there with SNT in the following day - I wonder which stage Last Leg will use there?

Would it be too harsh to suggest CNN is the 'Coronavirus News Network' these days. It's no doubt a big news story but every time I tune in these days they're leading with the coronavirus story and in particular the 'Diamond Princess'. I wouldn't be surprised if they'd interviewed everybody on that ship at this point.

Still at least we're nearly had a full week of Your World Today/The Brief in the first time for what must be 3-4 months. It says it all when it's a surprise when CNN actually stick to their scheduled programming.

Lets face it - there was a little bit of interest, probably due to Brexit, in the Irish elections when they happened. When we found out we wouldn't get a result there and then both the media and most the general public moved on. Ultimately when a government is finally formed and a Taoiseach elected it'll probably be a footnote in the "other news" round up towards the end of the bulletin.


And I'm afraid that's a sad indictment of our media's general attitude to stories that don't happen in the UK. This is potentially one of the most fascinating stories in Europe right now, and it merits little more than a footnote in a news roundup section of a bulletin. It's the first major general election and potential change of government since Brexit Day, and it probably deserves more than a "footnote".


Indeed while they're hardly alone in this, the BBC websites has had little to no mention of the Irish election fallout but at the moment has such big topics in its main news headlines as 'Inaccessible first floor property sells for £1' and 'Officers help deliver baby on lunch break'.
As I say though they're not alone in that - even watching CNN on an irregular basis, I'd happily never hear the words 'Diamond Princess' again. They're blimming obsessed with that ship.

I find these days Al Jazeera is my go-to if I actually want a proper international bulletin - they're not always perfect but you get much more of a global overview with them and much more breadth of stories.

Wonder how this effects the TV show? Just televise the Thursday edition?


Edit: notice it’s not on tonight. Have they canned the TV version of this already?


Parliament is in recess so not much in terms of political news.

Dominic Cummings isn't though.
It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.

Work out a way to sync up the on screen clock to show the correct time via the four DTT, DSat, Dcable & IPlayer) different digital transmission systems, with all the digital encoding and decoding that takes, and I'm all for the return of the clock as we head into the six and ten.

It could possibly use the same system as BBC Scotland use with the Nine/Seven


The "Don't give a fig" system?

I think that actually was a case of ITV turning it down and the BBC taking it on. I believe Steve has talked about this before on here.


Yes, ITV did turn it down, and it ended up on BBC1 - as did the spin-offs from the USA and Russia. Granada also made 7 Up 2000 for BBC1, but that was commissioned by the BBC and continued on there. Actually there should be another instalment of that next year, not that anyone remembers it's still going.



Speaking of which, it's supposed to be the conclusion of Child of Our Time this year, isn't it?


Did anyone remember that was even still going? They seemed to give up on it after a few years.

I remember reading they'd commissioned three shows but one was so bad it couldn't be shown and was hastily replaced by a documentary following all the audience around Vegas.


Not quite. Caroline lost her voice during the first taping which is the main reason the episode was canned (although it's true to say it wasn't great).

But the invision clock never showed the right time ......
It was always half a second fast so you saw it second hand vertical
just before you / the automation cut away At h0:00:00:00.

On the other end there is no specification for how long a decode takes
The Presentation Time Stamp just ensures all components are synchronised.
