Can we make a statement right now

I think it's fairly obvious though, isn't it? The great thing is that when these intolerant people come out of the woodwork, the rest of us are quick to denounce their nonsense.

Thank you to several of you who privately RTP'd about the post.

Although another message insisting that posts focus on the presentation, studio and programmes around Brexit, not your political persuasions.

BBC News (UK) presentation - Reith launch onwards

Very Happy

My first thought when seeing that clip isn't Carrie but wishing they'd sort out not crashing into the countdown. I guess they're going dead on 09:00:00 where for some reason the News Channel are running late.

Surely when you've got 1-2m viewers watching on BBC One it would be better to always start on the studio shot early, even if it does mean a few viewers on the News Channel have a bit of awkward dead air.

TV Forum: New for (the middle of) 2020

Welcome to a new look! Hope you like it, you'll find everything pretty much in the same place but I think it's a bit fresher. It's also the first time every page has been given a makeover at the same time. A few main bits to note...

  • Private messages have been unshackled after almost 20 years of being in a tiny popup. Messages are also threaded like a topic, rather than the SMS-of-the-'90s vibe we've had until now.
  • As well as the overall vote, Gallery designs are now broken down by individual rating.
  • Dark mode! You can turn it on via your User settings and either have it on all the time, just at night or based on whatever your system settings are. There may be some corners of the site I've forgotten to style, please let me know.
  • Starting today, new members will not immediately have access to Request topics.
    It's a 2-step process, with permission to then be able to post later on. Hopefully this will stop people using this site purely for requests and encourage some more meaningful posts elsewhere.
  • Search: it now works! almost works Sad - exact phrases aren't currently being matched.

I'm sure there will be some bugs in places, I've had a snagging list arms length for a while so at some point I needed to just get it live.
