CBBC Channel

I grew up with CBBC, and most of the shows on there are after my time. I think only 50/50, SMart, the 1996 Dennis and Chucklevision, Newsround and Get Your Own Back are the only shows from "my" era.

No sign of Grange Hill, Byker Grove, Blue Peter, The Animals Of Farthing Wood, Aquilla, The Demon Headmaster, The Queen's Nose, Live & Kicking... I could go on. If that chart is aimed at people who grew up in the 80s and 90s then they've got it badly wrong.


The majority of those shows are from the 2000s, a decade which I was born in. It’s a bit of light hearted fun. A lot of the Children’s BBC and CBBC (not the channel) generation are taking it way too seriously. As seen on here and on Twitter.

New Wants to be a Millionaire?

Not too surprised but a shame. Just as first time around I really feel stripping it across the week really helps engage the audience to continue watching throughout the week. A week between episodes means you don't particularly care whether you catch it or not.

ITV may have felt that having an episode each night was a waste, and having it aired weekly enables them to fill prime time schedules at weekends. There is also the fact, that having it stripped can cause people to become bored with the show after say night 3, and lose interest.
IIRC did they show WWTBAM weekly in the early years?

The X Factor: The Stars Opening Title Concept

Considering that’s the old studio in Wembley and there’s footage of the new studio on the official X Factor YouTube channel, you need to scrap this and go back to the drawing board. Look at the other XF mock in The Gallery first.


This mock was meant to be adapting the 2011 titles rather than the 2004-2007 ones.


I’m talking about the new studio that’s been used since 2017 in Acton, West London. Hence the words ‘old studio in Wembley’

Global Radio axes all regional/local breakfast shows

There is an irony in Global trying to set up young people for a career in radio broadcasting, considering they’ve got rid of most the jobs in radio broadcasting.


I'm not entirely sure that the Global Academy was set-up as to provide a pool of presenters from West London for their stations. If anything, it'll give them the building blocks to go further in the media industry if they want to, but to all intensive purposes, it's another academy with a media slant.


It most definitely wasn’t that. The training given to us was the practical and technical skills needed for a career in Broadcast and Digital Media. I can happily say that I graduated last year and I’m in a brilliant position.

Global Radio axes all regional/local breakfast shows

As someone who knows Global really well and has insider knowledge, they are a bloody joke. Getting rid of the local stations not only proved to be a detrimental failure but now their two biggest stations will have low audience figures in Q3.

Sounds like Ashley Tabor did something to upset you.


Not so much Ashley, more the school I graduated from, you know, the one that Global owns.

This Morning

The Lambie Nairn this morning titles were more flexible because they could just change the picture of who was presenting.

Now they have to chop the titles up and cut Holly and Phil out (and even zoom into a taxi window at one point) which looks really awful. This is what happens when you don't keep it simple.


Which year did Lambie Nairn create the titles?
