I'm not trying to bad month anyone, or put-down the great process and sites which have been created BUT I believe we are reaching a turning point were something needs to give; When it comes to the bread and butter issues of presentation of television, it seems to be lacking "Correct" FACT and lacking in certain Pic & clip etc which would fill up alot of the gaps:
Im at that age where i'am in-between, Classic way of Pres trade, IE Video tapes , lists and swapping around and this new boom in Online or doing things. Neither I have very good ideas about. Im still not sure how anyone goes about doing the first. To be fair the Youtube has been part of the saveloy of TV pres, as alot of missing gaps have been filled in thanks to creations but it does not go far enough.
What really annoy me is the complete incorrect details and knowledge floating about, to name a few:
* Scottish second thistle ident, come in Jan 1989, but for unknown reason was believe to come into use in Jan 90, yet no one question the fact STV was using said ident for the ITV corp ident, and why on earth there would paid for the creation to be first used on the ITV thing.
* Grampain Black ident, first used in Jan 1980 as still and April 85 with moving, but again was believe to much later.
* Worse case: Carlton Second set of idents coming in to effect in 1995, alot of press site have it wrong and placed for 1994.
* I bet alot of people never know Channel 4 did Invison= CA
during the mid 1990s?
Plenty more still needing to be sorted. I dont want to put anyone down, but I believe a GOOD KICK up the backside is needed to keep people on there toes and to make sure nothing becomes stagnate, which can not be good for any one involved.
Im was surprised that no one took a real interest in trying to create a list of Clips/pres yet to appear on the net, it could have been start of a good appeal and made alot of people aware what is missing, you never know someone might have seen it said I have that and then uploaded it, thus given more people the pleasure.
