Sounds reasonable.

They've moved ITV2 to the fifth transponder this morning.

I notice everyone pronounces her name in that ridiculous way...


I remember people discussing this a while ago. Someone said that there is a Scottish name that is pronounced Ms Ashby's way, but is spelt something like Mahree (or something), which is fair enough.

But Ms Ashby's spelling is the *English spelling*, and therefore she needs to be b*tch-slapped and told that M-A-R-I-E is pronounced "Ma- re " (or sometimes "Marry", but definately not "Mahr- ree ").

If her name ain't spelt the Scots way, then her choice of pronunciation is just plain snobbery. Evil or Very Mad

Mhairi is the Scottish version, and is pronounced Vari

Been a fan of Central News East for YEARS...(anyone remember the Showaddywaddy bloke doing music news/features in the 80's???), but watched it tonight on the add channel thing on sky & how totally detatched from the show did I feel?, Marie (it's the way she pronounces it that matters, you say tomato I say tomato?? kinda thing) & Darren don't seem to connect to me at the moment. Maybe I've got used to living with Duncan & Christine on Calander, but at the moment it isn't working

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Dave Bartram was the presenter of 'Popwatch'!


Shown in the West as a recording on Mondays, but transmitted live in the East on Fridays! (On the odd occasion Central West couldn't be shown for some reason, West got East one Friday, in that period, & I remember 'Popwatch' being shown then, & not shown again in the West on the following Monday, as it had already been shown!)

Some of the Central titles have changed this morning. If you do an add channels you now find "ITV1 Central", "ITV1 Central E" and where we were anticipating Central South (on what was 10100 on 10.758V/22.0/5.6) you get "ITV1 Central W". Unless that is the new home of Central West.

Anglia East and STV East haven't been named.

Well now I watched CN south for the first time in years this evening -- and I have two things to say.

Here they claim Monmouthshire as theirs [to which they are welcome], however most of the county watch HTV West.

And this man announced to us that his mum [to whom he waved] would be watching CNS in York. I do hope they're prepared for the correspondence asking how that's done and can I tell auntie Judith in Cromer how it's done cos she used to live in Hereford you see years ago but had to move away to the coast on account of etc etc.

Any particular reason why that woman has a black bar across her bottom?
