1993... that was a frightening time in NI.

I remember people were reluctant to go out that Halloween weekend, fearful of a retaliatory attack seven days after the Shankill Road bomb.

As its been announced here that veteran actor Geoffrey Palmer has died today at the age of 93, here's a scene from the Fawlty Towers episode he appeared in in 1979:


Palmer appeared in all kinds of things over the years 1958-2020, and was best known for his roles in British television sitcoms in The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin. Butterflies and As Time Goes By. His film appearances include A Fish Called Wanda (1988), The Madness of King George (1994), Mrs. Brown (1997), and Clockwise (1986).

Although, this is a comedy tour de force from Palmer. Riding the laughs perfectly and having to remember this 'list' and in order. Brillant.

I think you're thinking of this on Vimeo - behind the scenes of the Perfect Day performance by satellite:

Looks like it all worked well, though all that effort and they use different fonts on the location graphics? 11:10 is a shocker, not sure if this was inserted after the event. And not sure it was worth the effort of Lou Reed climbing 7 flights of stairs, let alone getting a satellite broadcast involved!

There isn’t a thread for dailymotion and I’m pretty sure I saw it there... so, a small request, if i may? I remember seeing some twenty minutes-long video from the 2000 BBC Music Live thing, a big behind the scenes with all the engineers and lots of talk about delays and sync etc. Did I make that up?

Ah, back to the times when the world and country were a happier place. Amazing what happens in 20 years.

I've never heard of The Television Show. Was it just behind the scenes items and previews/reviews? Judging from that clip the studio audience seems a little unnecessary!

Turns out Who Wants to be a Millionaire might actually be breaking some advertising rules.

Surely its no different to Blockbusters? Which quite often took breaks mid game and didn't wait for White/Blue to push off before they showed some ads. I believe the ITC/Ofcom codes have their roots in what the IBA established (save for the whole "we're the broadcaster, you're the franchise" thing) and the IBA didn't seem to have a problem with that? So if they didn't, the ITC probably wouldn't have either.

The key thing with these two shows is that they are rolling formats (Blockbusters in its "classic" era was anyway and Millionaire always has been). That may change the way of thinking. If Millionaire said at the end of the show, we're out of time, no more questions, you've won £32k, join us next time, tarrah, it wouldn't be the same format for a start.

There's something else that has to be going on that allows Millionaire to "circumvent" (for want of a better word) that "Programmes with Prizes" rule. Its just otherwise hard to imagine since a Millionaire game can take the best part of an episode to play out fully, that you can't have any adverts in it, otherwise it would have just not appeared on ITV at all. Why would ITV buy something they can't sell ads for besides anything legally forced on them to show?

It was a TVS show on Sunday nights presented by Fern Britton and Kieren Prendeville. It came from TVS's studio in Gillingham

I think it had guests as well as behind the scenes reports, there was a chat show element


EDIT, it's a difficult programme to look up due to the rather generic name. Also there was a different 'The Television Programme' made by Westward:

Didn’t The Television Show eventually become TV Weekly?

That aside, the user who uploaded the clip to YouTube is the same person who uploaded tons of clips to MHP Private Parts about 15 years ago. Good to see their clips getting on to YouTube now. I’m sure they’ve uploaded a clip they never had on the PP previously, so it’s a channel worth subscribing to.

I don't think there was much of a link between The Television Programme and TV Weekly except being made by the same company. There was a gap of a few years between and also made in different studios - Gillingham and Southampton.

Same sort of idea though, just more daytimey
