NBC/MSNBC keep playing a clip from Civilization a show I think in 1961 where the host says to the extent “I don’t know how to define it but I can when I see it” with Norte Dame in the back ground


I think you mean the BBC’s landmark 1969 documentary series, it’s rather demeaning to refer to it as a ‘show’ and for it to have a ‘host’ !

Don't be so ridiculous. Show, documentary, programme.... same old argument. Yawn.

The start of the RTÉ News at Six One had 2 backdrops littered with images of the fire at Notre Dame which came after the titles.

Lyse Doucet now presenting LIVE from Paris for BBC World News.

Also simulcast on the News Channel.


Does Lyse still anchor from the studio on World News?


No. Lyse doesn’t anchor television news from the studio any more, although occasionally does on BBC World Service Radio.

Alas........

Someone once told me “confining Lyse to the studio is like caging a free bird”.

I think she prefers rooftops all over the world.

Cuomo is one of those overdramatic ''me me me'' anchors plus loves to preach.



I didn't catch any of CNN's coverage, but to be fair Chris specialises in political interviews rather than rolling coverage of breaking news.

Apologies. Didn’t realize it was a big deal. It was presented as the opening minutes of a BBC show, so I didn’t know any better.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

It’s not a show, it’s a programme. I’m with MarkyMark on this one.

Show = entertainment
Programme = education/information

And to correct your butchering of the great man’s words...

“What is civilisation? I don’t know. I can’t define it in abstract terms, yet. But I think I can recognise it when I see it.” “And I’m looking at it now.”

The Kay Burley Show being the exception. Very Happy

The terminology is an interesting one, I remember in the 80s my dad commenting when Sue Lawley prefaced the tease after the headlines recap during the Six with "later on the show".
Write that down in your copybook now.

I remember sometimes Natasha Kaplinsky used to say "also on tonight's show" during the headlines intro when she used to do the Six back in the day. Drove me nuts.

Pretty much everything over here is described as a show.

There have been some dull discussions on this site over the years but this takes the biscuit.
