I notice that The Shot That Shook The World arrives on our screens at 21.45 on Tuesday evening and concludes after the news at 23.30.

From this, will the programme be a continuous event, as in Trevor presents the show from the news studio and also presents the news segment, or will somebody else be in at 10.30?


Trevor answered this question on 'This Morning' last week - I think he said he won't be presenting the 10:30 News on Tuesday. It'll probably be Mark or James.

Nice studio +music! Looks as though they're using the ITV News studio though. I like the way they are interviewing their correspondants and presenters from across the ITN network.

It's far too rushed though - could have done with a couple of hours, and to be honest deserves a far better slot than the post-football filler!

The last half hour was very poor - it have been better of it the votes had all been counted before the show.

They went through 10-6, then rather than reveal the top five clip by clip, they had extended clips of each "Shot" - the top clip in each category (rather than the top five overall), all fronted by someone campaigning for that shot.

After some football game from 1966, the Boxing Day Tsunami and 9/11, we had a break - then returned with clips of the Man on the Moon and Kennedy's assisination - with the lines closing immediately after the Kennedy segment - so viewers were not given the opportunity to watch the five clips then vote!

We then had the top five revealed in a quick countdown, and a live link up to New York where a gospel choir just happened to be waiting to sing us out!

Top 5 were:

5 - Dodgy refereeing in 1966 Laughing
4 - The Shot that Shook JFK
3 - Boxing Day Tsunami
2 - Man on the Moon (or studio floor, depending on your beliefs)
1 - Twin Towers


Actually, being serious it's the first time in ages I've seen the Twin Towers images played again on TV.


Another comment - re: Diana. The image of the crashed car was in the top ten, but personally I feel that it's the images of her funeral that have a greater impact.
