Probably noted already but
BBC 1 CA's have started naming themselves which i think is a nice personal touch
Call me old fashioned but I really miss the old style in-vision continuity announcers that the ITV regions used to have, in my case Anglia. To this day they all remain such memorable faces. I'm all in favour of a return to a more personal touch.
I agree I loved the in vision announcements on HTV Wales which were got rid of from January 1993 at the same time as HTV relaunched with a new logo etc for the new franchise period. Even though we managed to hold onto local announcers in Wales until IIRC 2006 it was never quite the same.
I think the BBC should probably just start playing out long form archive content on Saturday afternoons - Grandstand Gold so to speak.
Back to recorded shows and I'm guessing Countdown can't have long left. This week they've begun airing episodes featuring a post-pregnant Rachel which were filmed at the beginning of March. On the 19th it was announced they'd continue without an audience but with Nick being in his mid-70s I'd have thought they'd have had to stop not long after that.
