Which one do you think is the best overall?
So many to choose from but The Snowman spoof has got to be their best. Really well made, beautiful looking and timeless....unlike:
We never thought mum was the punchline per say, more the reaction to what she said
The joke is the unexpected thing the mother sings. The reaction shots are just a bonus laugh.
Either way, it's probably not an ad they'd run today
Did you not understand the launch video?
My assumption, having seen the clip few times (and I saw it happen live) was that someone, most likely in LWT's MCR had the other channel, RTL, on the router for 'monitoring purposes' and it got accidently got routed to the OS line
The Sunday Politics aren't always pre records.
More likely they just sent out the ident to use from today and so someone used it!
I don't think they'd use being transgender as a punchline these days. Interesting how attitudes have changed just in this century
Of course one use for these was for obits as seen when the Queen Mum died
BBC, Sky and Al Jazeera with rolling coverage.
Al Jazeera's London office is in The Shard at the south end of London Bridge, so along with The Wireless Group/News UK who are next door they are very close to the incident
Normally an advantage being so close. When that other incident on London Bridge happened a few years ago they weren't allowed in or out of the building. I think they ended up doing phone interviews with their own staff who had gone out for a break/for a pint and couldn't get back inside

It could well be that it's not new and they're making the most of a previously underused backdrop before the move
I'd have thought it was unlikely that Radio 1 would take the output of BBC1 as it was in mono at the time
Not really, if the point is to promote it, then there's little point putting it on in front of the actual thing when the audience is there watching it
TV companies don't usually run traditional prkmos before the thing they're promoting
I've the opposite review on R/Politics actually. It's one of the worst subs for absolute hysteria - and is a chore to read after a while.
It can be a bit, but I get a better context of the story through reading the conversations about the story than I do through any other means. The way that only certain, reliable, publications are allowed to be posted is a big plus.
Quote:I always take Reddit and Twitter with a big pinch of salt - there's a lot of ignorance and people can come out with or believe the biggest load of rubbish.
As I say, it's representative of the whole Internet.
The one USP that Reddit has is that a lot of the rubbish gets downvoted and therefore hidden or relegated to the bottom. It's a feature I wish a lot of other forums had.... I'd use it a lot on here!
Quote:The whole Boston Bomber saga was a particular lowpoint.
Yes that was disastrous for its reputation, there's been a few of those - the whole The_Donald section is another. However not every user sees the controversial stuff as by its very nature you only get the sections you want appearing. It's different to Twitter in that respect as it's topic based rather than person based

I've used Reddit for years and it's really a reflection of Internet itself - some subreddits are valuable and decent, some are absolute cesspits. Some users are well informed and highly intelligent... some are total a-holes.
r/politics has been invaluable the last few years for keeping in touch with what's going on with American politics. It's a very heavily moderated subreddit so it's mostly constructive and reliable.
There's every topic you can think of on there, to dismiss it because it's got, or had, some undesirable parts is unfair
(Not that I'm a subscriber to the conspiracy regarding the BBC and Boris)
I seem to recall, BBC 2 started to relay CNN's output for an hour or so from about 17:30 hrs ?
Interestingly Peter Snow says at the start of that clip that it happened 'about 25 minutes ago'. Challenger exploded at 16:38 GMT so it seems like the Newsnight Special was on air at about the same time as Newsround, which was on at 17:00
