The Body Shop animal testing quandary is put to a Body Shop Assistant Manager


Was that line reused for both The Mrs Merton Show and The Royle Family?


I don't think it was, but it was put to the audience as a dilemma when the series was produced (in the episode where she interviews Barbara Windsor, just before the interview itself).


I'm pretty sure Nanna says it to Barbara in one of the Christmas episodes about a present she's received that wasn't tested on animals.

The video wall was there until not that long ago really, I think it was only around 2010/2011 they got rid of it, which disapointed me! I've been going to Meadowhall since the mid-90s though, and I don't remember them ever simulasting YTV, so that must have stopped early on. They used to run all sorts, not just promotional stuff but music videos and cartoons and stuff too.


I was talking about very early on, you might get a bit of The Time The Place or whatever early in a morning, but I doubt it was ever intended as a proper sustaining service - it may not even have been intentional given the implications of such a simulcast. I just recall whenever I walked through first thing in a morning, there'd be GMTV or the early YTV lineup on there, with the proper promotions stuff really kicking in about 10. Perhaps it was just used as a TV for staff until the big rushes started back then?

In addition, I don't recall seeing Meadowhall themselves using it that much, aside from the playout, it was pretty much YTVs base for down the line/ small pickups, much like the upstairs of Radio Sheffield is for the BBC.

Tonight on C4 is a "Gogglebox Brexit Special", the first Gogglebox proper since Aherne died, wonder if there will be a tribute of some sort at the end, or if they'll wait until the series returns in the autumn?

NANNA : "Barbara, you know that cream that Anthony got me for Christmas?"
BARB : "Yeah..."
NANNA : "Well, it said on the label, "Not tested on animals." What do you think?"
BARB : "What do you mean?"
NANNA : "Well, suppose some of it were to spill on a dog? I didn't like to say anything to Anthony about it..."
