Sony / Currys - Carphone Warehouse promo

Right .... The company parent name now is Dixons Carphone. However the name of the trading company is still known as

DSG Retail Limited, doing business as Currys, retails kitchen appliances, televisions and entertainment products, cameras, audio products, computing products, personal computer accessories, phones, smart watches and fitness products, drones, smart toys and gadgets, and other small appliances. It also serves customers via online. The company was incorporated in 1952 and is based in London, United Kingdom with stores in Colchester, Clacton, Ipswich, Chelmsford, Southend-On-Sea, Bury St Edmunds, Basildon, Leicester, and Harlow, United Kingdom. DSG Retail Limited operates as a subsidiary of Dixons Carphone plc.

Companies House Registration - https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/00504877

DSG Retail therefore as the trading subsidiary is indeed correctly used here.
No more of this nonsense please without fact checking.

Brexit Dramarama - TV News Coverage

Back to the Football. Things could have been resolved much easier if Number 10 had given 10 more mins notice. The statement was flagged at 9pm. If it was known during Half time in the football, a decision could have been made to switch the second half to BBC TWO at 9pm clearing the BBC ONE service for a Ten News without possible hinderance. Once the second half had begun that was all but impossible without preempting an in progress programme. Hindsight is always valuable and maybe Number 10 will make these decisions sooner in the light of what happened on Tuesday.

Sony / Currys - Carphone Warehouse promo

Seems that Sony and DSG have licensed from BBC Earth the Blue Planet 2 UHD series which is on offer via an App on various Sony Smartphones and Bravia receivers purchased up to the end of February. The content being available until the end of September (or October, there's some confusion around). This seems a little strange. I hope that BBC Studios and the retailer and manufacturer agreed this on full commercial terms. It is a shame that this seems to pseudo-paywall BBC Content for the benefit of a retailer and manufacturer that's not currently available for general use.

Dancing on Ice 2019

Davidson is a horror, he attempted a character assassination of a leading local reporter last autumn, thankfully the reporter fired back with both barrels and won the argument. Providing people fawn to him he's ok, anything else grates with him rapidly and he sure lets the non-fawning individual and others know. He's best out of public consumption now.

EDIT - Relevant follow up article ...

Brexit Dramarama - TV News Coverage

There are four UK EBU representatives, alongside the BBC, ITV is represented by UK Independent Broadcasting(*), other UK members are STV in their own right and S4C.

(*) A catchall for commercial broadcasting. This is now an anachronism in that I'm not aware of any Independent Radio EBU involvement, although in the IBA and Radio Authority days there was some.

BT Sport -

I know they've been transmitting past 'The Big Match' (and indeed 'MotD') programmes for a while. but I've avoided them. Tonight following the French League Cup match, I was stunned to hear and then note that the latest batch seem to be being transmitted in FULL including the glorious LWT animated logo at the beginning. I thought that this was previously removed in these re-runs. With some investigation it appears that they also are showing some of the Granada 'Match Time' programmes too, as they're in the player. These too are headed with the Granada logo.

Retro TV in full.
