Still not a fan of those shorter titles. They look like they'd be better suited for a short summary on a Saturday lunchtime or something.


The titles aren't short, the 'headlines' are too long..(!)

I've said before the "pre baked" headlines circa 99 were much more punchy. I'd rather a quick 30sec heads and titles then into the news, not upwards of 2 minutes of headlines.

One day the phone numbers on the sign above the monitor (not the labels) were so clear I wanted to dial them. They appeared to be the external line. But I didn’t want to incur international charges.

Use a ViOP based service, even Skype will only be a few Cents, but why on earth would you ring, and what are you bursting to say?!

Most viewers have probably swapped Huw for a dose of Rageh tonight rather than staying up until after 22:40


I just switched over to the BBC NC where Rita C was there, with in effect an entire NaT 22:00 to 22:30.Flicked over to Fred D at 22:30 for ITV Meridan news. Simples

You know, just say I’m a big fan of “Do the Huw.”

The presenters on this don't seem to like each other. Not a regular viewer, but today she looks like she is always trying to put him down.
She seems to be a bit rude and in love with her self and he scared of her lol.

It's part of the fun and chemistry, the remit of the programme is reporting on political development around the world with attempted punches of irreverent wit and fun.
