RTÉ One Christmas idents for 2020
Split from The Late Late Gay Byrne Irish Television ThreadIt used to be the case that you’d only hear announcements in Irish before Irish language programmes (although for many years, the “default” announcement on RTÉ Television was “Radio Telefis...
Promo RefreshHuh, wonder if the same thing will happen with The US Office, it’s on demand via Sky Comedy, but it still airs on Comedy Central? Will it move at the same time as Fresh Prince?
30 years since the closure of BSB Yes, my question was actually prompted by this video I found of someone watching a D2-MAC widescreen broadcast and changing the settings on the receiver between 16:9 and 4:3 cut-out!
CITV Gas Street cut-outs
Where are they now?Yeah I remember that Christmas ident and Christmas Jingle, it was very nice.
BBC 1997 rebrand - the unsullied era
Who wishes it would come back?I liked the uniformity of the logos, to be honest. And I agree with you that the uniformity of the logos forced designers to assert visual identity in different ways. Had they been allowed...
The Sound of TV with Neil Brand
BBC Four TV music programmeProblem with sports, and particular BBC Sport, was most of the iconic themes from the 1970's were library music and not composed for a particular sports coverage.
Daytime TV in the UK TV hours were rationed prior to 1972. The allocations were as listed here as of 1963, I don't think they changed much in the nine years afterwards: As to the background: TL;DR - it was...
Neville Wanless has died
Former TTTV continuity announcerMay he RIP, and he will be missed, still it's good to see that ITV Tyne Tees has acknowledged him
Sunday evening TV memories News Review's style reminds me a bit of EuroNews in the 00s. There'd be relatively long stretches with no voice over. The Money Programme was also a sort of a 'thinking-man's' consumer affairs...
Channel 4 Christmas presentation
'The Clown'I'm hoping they create a one-off ident featuring the 2015 blocks in those colours. Or just use one of the 1982 ones.
Nick Hewer quits Countdown

Death to 2020
Netflix announces new Wipe-style showI think if you're expecting it to be the same as Screenwipe then you may be disappointed. However watching it last night the wife found it funny, and overall I enjoyed it.
ITV breached Ofcom competition rules over postal votes
Some viewers who posted off competition entries for various shows "had no chance of winning".Ironically I would say ITV Play was one of the 'fairer' call to lose channels back in the day! I continually got through to the studio using the free web entry, won around £20,000 over several...
Vicar of Dibley lockdown specials I've seen it on GOLD edited so that there's credits, the joke comes at the end and the make poverty history bit is removed.
Dodgy audio in post-lockdown episodes?That's just a graphics error. Nothing more than that. Similar instances have occurred on The Chase when the clock in the final round seems to gain/lose a second or two on occasion, which causes...
Cbeebies into BBC Four breakdown
Cbeebies breakdown slide appears just before Four startup.This is normal. CBeebies and BBC Four share a video stream, so just before 7pm the video going to the encoder is switched from CBeebies output to BBC Four's output. At the same time the ID on the...
