- Without getting too political, that was the one thing I was looking forward to if Trump came to the UK. Him inadvertently attacking a Murdoch related news channel because you know they wouldn't praise him like Fox do.
But the overruning also meant that the iPlayer schedule got messed up in a really bizarre way.
When was the last time you ever saw BBC One listed as Off Air?
The only time I even thought about the skin colour of the man and girl was when I saw it brought up on the internet! I think that says more about attitudes of the general public than the BBC thrusting false diversity messages down our throats. Sometimes when the BBC tries too hard to be diverse to tick boxes, it backfires on them, but in this instance, I don't think it's overly obvious and as such I have no problems with any of the idents, or the characters within them.
A complaint about that (why aren't they white?) was the first comment posted on the YouTube clip which was released before it aired on TV.
Quote:We were friends of Victor Pemberton for many years until he died in August this year. Victor produced the 4th Series of Fraggle Rock and we have many master VHS of various episodes taken at the time of recording the show.
Probably not VHS tapes themselves. To many people the letters VHS were interchangeable with the word tape. It could be Betacam or whatever format the show was actually recorded on.
Or what happens (god-forbid) if a Queen Mother style incident happens where it interrupts both channels?
I doubt it, it's a 15. Why would they show it at 15:50?
I think it's more than likely to be Dreamworks Home. To quote Wikipedia.
At the Devil's Door (originally titled Home ) is a 2014 American horror film directed by Nicholas McCarthy.
Dreamworks Home fits the slot.
Admittedly I have no idea how scheduling is put together but I think that whatever software they use to make the guide still has At the Devil's Door under the name Home and that Digiguide renamed it to it's correct title after reading the EPG description?
There is a game on the 23rd, but it would be playing while The NFL Show is on air, and Sky Sports have the rights to that game, so they couldn't be covering that.
Then there's games on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day which would give them time to produce a highlights show for near midnight on Boxing Day (the usual timeslot for weekend games). But there isn't a show scheduled then. I'm assuming that's scheduled for the 27th?
BBC One will join the news channel at 01:55 instead of 1:25
Even more strangely... BBC News has us covered once again... they've recently uploaded a video of the breakdown.
I thought the BBC was constantly recording off-air footage of the other main channels in case of news footage/sport? Something to do with the footage has to branded as it was on the original broadcast (i.e. football highlights on the news featuring the Sky Sports DOG and scorebar, when MOTD may have been recording the match as well).
SLFN ends. The generic red BBC One ident plays. BBC News update plays. BBC weather update starts, like when your watching on the HD channel, but Wales Today crashes into it. Sport and Music trails. Fluffy Dog ident into Eastenders.
Considering the circumstances, I'd say that was handled well enough.
The Royle Family DVD set I have is very inconsistent on the endcaps. Episodes 1, 2, 4 and 5 of series 1 don't have a traditional endcap, and instead end on the last credits with a copyright notice underneath.
Episodes 3 and 6 have this endcap, which I assume is what originally went out on broadcast. I'm not sure why they forgot to cut them off these episodes, but I'm thankful they didn't.
I just quickly checked the copies of series 1 on Netflix. All of them (including episodes 3 and 6) have this endboard.
So which was the original? I guess the only way to find out is to find some continuity from the period.
"BBC Studios launched as a commercial business in April 2017, meaning it is able to produce programmes for other broadcasters as well as the BBC, supporting the BBC’s public service mission and generating financial returns for licence fee payers."
Neil Jones posted:Of course back in the days before trailers started being inserted after adverts we could (and did) have just "<name of show> End of Part One", fade to black, adverts, three seconds hold and straight back to "<name of show> Part Two".
The Brass Eye episode Decline has the fake one (That was the one they used in all the other episodes) then after the Channel 4 News clip another simpler one.
12m8s if the link doesn't work.
I don't think I've seen it before, is it new?
(Also the final episode of Len Goodman's Partners in Rhyme is on BBC One)
"This is Melbourne, it's 26°, it's sunny, it's lovely... We've got a top team Down Under, and I'm off to the studio in Salford to present it."
Possibly, but he's also got both NFL shows, MOTD2 & Extra to present as well.
