Tomasz Schafernaker's 1.55pm weather forecast on the NC, the graphics failed to work so he just stood in front of the camera and gave us the weather in front of a static BBC Weather caption.

You mean he didn't throw a strop or make a sarcastic comment like he usually does when something goes wrong? Wink

1989 is correct! TV Ark (when it was online) had a video of the first ever forecast.

Yep and I looked it up on Wikipedia before posting too


Wiki is often composed of people's faulty memories though !

Another mishap on the NC, the forecast was cut off near the end, a blue screen appeared and then it just cut to the countdown. Teething problems one assumes.

Would think there would be real time rendering by most systems now. That’s the standard in the US.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Any pictures? Also was it the old caption or the new one?
