BBC1 Christmas 2017 Idents

Due to the memorial service overrunning the scheduled episode of Bargain Hunt had to be replaced. (They also used Vista twice out of that junction, with one use being uninterrupted).

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?

BBC1 Christmas 2017 Idents

You'd have to be an incredibly sad person to only judge it by the colour of the character's skin than the actual concept.


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.

Fraggle Rock episodes recovered

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.

Christmas Schedules

I notice BBC1 are currently showing a supernatural horror film as the family Christmas Eve afternoon premiere. Surely this has to change right? Kids will go to bed terrified on the most magical night of the year otherwise.


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?

Christmas Schedules

I'm slightly confused on what The NFL Show is doing on the 23rd, as it covers the Thursday game(s). But there isn't one that week. It couldn't cover the games from the Sunday/Monday of the week before as it's not long enough to fit all the highlights for that.

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?

This Morning Breakdown

Strangely there appears to be no YouTube caps of it.

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).

BBC Wales Thread

Just caught the junction around SLFN and Eastenders to see how they handled it on BBC Two Wales.

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.

Interesting Endboards



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.

Idiosyncrasies of presentation in America

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.
