Just had a look at the BR (German) player, they've loaded up a hell of a lot of educational titles, which seem to be the equivalent of Schools Television, some of which are incredibly dated, also in 4:3 which have, I suspect not seen the light of day since the 1980's. I wonder what's still lurking in the BBC/ITV Schools Archives which might be uploaded here in the coming days.


Well its not like basic facts go out of date, its just the way they're presented and the context. And sometimes the fashion.

After all physics still applies, chemistry is still valid - mixing bleach and ammonia is still as toxic now as it was in 1986 - and biology, well males of the species still have sticky-out bits that require "attention", shall we say Wink

BBC Two/BBC NC/BBC Parliament are all now simulcasting 'Live from the House of Commons', albeit the latter with some dodgy retro-lower-thirds.

Presumably 'continuing drama' series such as Doctors, Eastenders, and Casualty might be taken off air, especially if filming has to stop.
Although Casualty remains hugely popular on Saturday nights and often has far-fetched soap-style storylines, it would be an unusual watch if it just went on as normal to portray a hospital emergency department "in normal times". Presumably it will be almost impossible to make changes to storylines to even vaguely reflect real-life , so maybe they will just have to give up. Alternatively, some people might see it as escapism...!



With friendly respect to you, I just don't understand this kind of thought. These shows are pure fiction, nothing more. Why are they supposed to suddenly start representing "real life" in terms of current affairs, however dramatic our world has suddenly become? There are plenty of medical and other real world documentaries and will likely be even more ahead that will feature ample reality.

Where are they doing the Martin Lewis show from tonight?

They’ve obviously had to come up with a completely different studio look that doesn’t match anything, as it’s never been sone from a TV studio before.

I think it looks like a few set elements from Peston - correct me if I’m wrong?!
