ITV 2020 presentation refresh
Split from ITV 2019 idents and presentation - ITV Creates.Yeah. I see he's now changed it to "signatures and their content" in response to this discussion.
Coronavirus | Schedule Changes More smart repeats / buy-ins - Harlots from 2017 on BBC2 tonight. Originally from ITV Encore and Hulu. In my opinion this is exactly what the BBC should be doing in normal times to fill some hours.
BBC Scotland - the launch
Split from BBC Scotland channel - service to also launch in HD.I must say - it’s a nice change and I prefer the temporary home. Hope the roof leaks more often
Launches 29th July. Split from ITV Programming Thread.I can confirm manually tuning CITV brings up the same “No programmes are currently being broadcast on this channel” message as when you go to it on the EPG when it is off-air
Coronavirus - Impact on live/recorded shows
Several talk programmes have cancelled studio audiences.Did they film any before lockdown? Will be interesting to see what changes they make to it, they've still got over 100 episodes in the can from the current series which they'll probably spread out...
Big Brother USA 22 - 2020
New Pictures of the House Revealed.Not for the live feeds or watching live. Will just find the episode tomorrow - never usually a problem.
General Discussion.I don’t think they can cope with shows over there that aren’t all recaps, over-excited voiceovers and tense music, so it was doomed from the start really.
New Sky channels: Crime, Comedy, Documentaries, Nature
Sky Documentaries, History and Nature now launched.Touchscreens on TV were a nice fad . . . for about 5 minutes, but why do they continue with them? Why not just read the story and have the gallery show the appropriate graphic or video?
Good Morning Britain in 2020
Split from Good Morning Britain."Trotters up in the south of France"... Didn't think I'd hear that one in a hurry
Loose Women | 20th Anniversary Onwards
Returns Monday 4th May 2020.Ranvir on again today, looks like she’s now officially part of the Loose Women team!
Old and new.France 4's and France Ô's plans for closure, originally scheduled on Sunday 9th August of this year, had become blurry because of the current Covid-19 crisis. But today, minister of culture Roselyne...
The Sport Thread
For stuff not worthy of a thread of its own.A short broadcast from Formula E, on the eve of their resumption of racing in Berlin. Although quite short, the live section was incredibly well put together.
Bauer rebranding 53 stations to The Hits/Greatest Hits
The majority of its acquisitions last year.Interesting to see former Radio 1 Controller Ben Cooper join Bauer in a newly created role:
Top of the Pops
1989 now on BBC Four.Still no sign of 1990 TOTP appearing any time soon. A repeat of Big Hits 1989 is now scheduled for Friday 21st August. MUSIC: Top of the Pops On: BBC Four Date: Friday 21st August 2020 (starting...
The Chase | Beat the Chasers
New Chaser confirmed | US revival to air on ABC.Mark mentioned in his interview on Loose Women today that he works in London, Melbourne and LA - any ideas what work he's doing in LA or if this may be a hint that he's going to be on the new US series?...
ITV Programming Thread
2017.From the information I've seen, it's going to be aimed at 6-12 year olds, not surprisingly, the same age demo for the CITV channel.
Sky Arts to go FTA from September
The arts and culture channel also announced a raft of new programmes.AIUI it's not even able to feature-match the current Tetra Emergency Service system...
