Coronation Street

Hardly strong when they tried to drop it and ultimately offered a weekend omnibus as a compromise.

I do think selected episodes makes much more sense - used to enjoy it when C5 aired Home and Away classics over the summer and the ming them kind of directed viewers to them.


Part of the reason was to try and get the Edinburgh and Glasgow broadcast sync up since Edinburg his 150Eps behind Glasgow, add in Ayr, Dundee and Aberdeen and there just wanted a single feed.

I agree about Corrie and not having them in order

Sky's Branding

So were at least getting something half decent from Living?

Sky Living’s new set of idents has been revealed - courtesy of Sky Creative.




They’re only screenshots, but they look infinitely better compared to the outgoing set of idents.

And looking through Sky Creative’s Twitter handle, it’s now safe to say that we’re indeed losing the ‘1’ on Sky One.

Shows that people forget or get lost in time



I genuinely have no memory of Histeria ever been shown here, though from what I've seen of it, it's not very good, mostly cos it's "edutainment". A shame, being from the same people as Tiny Toons, Animaniacs and Pinky and The Brain.

I remember loads of Hanna-Barbera stuff being shown on CBBC well into the 90s. I remember them showing that bizarre Flintstones sketch/variety show from the 70s during the breakfast slot in the late 90s!

I also have on video the last few seconds of a screening of the 50s Felix The Cat cartoons that for whatever reason got repackaged with a new theme tune in the early 90s. Speaking of that I'll also point out The Twisted Tales of Felix The Cat from the 90s- though I think CITV showed that one.


Histeria was deffo screened over here, CBBC breakfast show, Im sure it got a repeat airing on the sunday morning slots aswell.

Which one?

Coronation Street

People won't watch episodes every single day just on the off chance that one of the classic episodes or rememberable plot events just happens to occur, hence why soap reruns have all failed and ceased. You'd tune in once for the novelty of seeing the characters but then realise you've just seen 30 mins half way through some minor plots that nobody can remember.


YET Take the high road is still going strong on STV2, yet when there moved the broadcast around to try and sync the content up there were alot of storm of protest.

Coronation Street

According to Digiguide, Classic Corrie is apparently coming back to TV screens - on ITV3.

It's to start airing from the 2nd October. A lot of people here will welcome this - it is the first time it has shown since the launch of ITV3.


Where are there starting from? 70s? 80s? 90s? I'm surprised they're not doing a double bill with Emmerdale.

As far as I can remember, Animaniacs was NEVER on CBBC, and Pinky and the Brain only appeared on there briefly about 10 years back.

Pinky, Elmyra and The Brain did get a brief run on CITV in 2001- shoved out in a Saturday afternoon slot as if they had to show it and just wanted to get rid of it.


I believe Pinky and brian did make it on to CBBC, along with Taz mania. Pinky, Elmyra and The Brain did start off on the weekday slot but as said was moved around to burn it off, but at least there broadcast the full series.

BBC Scotland political programme, Left right and centre.

Also from up here, the Friday night sports preview show Friday Sportscene, and the STV equivelant, Scotsport extra time.


A very clever placement for that promo just before the million of viewers going into Neighbours, and I dare say one of the only time back then when Glasgow would do the CA in to Neighbours. there were quick of the mark.
