Central (West) Midlands Today
This could be brilliant for the programme and for Dec. Obviously he’s very talented and as a duo they have proved themselves to be amazing entertainers but he shined whilst presenting the last few takeaways and bgt live shows and I’m sure that he will flourish with Holly; in a way it’s a shame that he’s been nominated with Ant for the NTA as I’m sure he’d have continued to win as a solo presenter and it may mean more to him.

I'm a celeb never gets much of a refresh but doesn't seem to need it. The show has been running for 16 years and I believe in that time there have only been 3 versions of the opening titles. As far as I can tell the current titles have been in use for at least 10 years. There are those short clips between the studio bits and the in camp stuff that have been in use for many many years too.

The original titles ran for about 3 years and after this there was a set where a limo was dropped into the jungle where the celebs got out of it which was very short lived, probably only 1 or 2 series. The limo opening is still used by the German version of the show which has now been running for 12 seasons.

Australia have a tweaked version of the theme for their African setting.

I’m really surprised it’s live there’s no satellite feed or anything yet it looks like it’s coming from a few miles away.

These days there shouldn't be any difference in picture quality for something from so far away, assuming it's given enough bandwidth and not re-encoded en route.


There shouldn't be any difference between fibre and satellite, or some sort of IP solution, again as long as the latter is given enough bandwidth


Is there definitely no satellite involved?

True - though fibre connectivity can often offer far higher bitrates than satellite. You seldom see satellite circuits over 50 or 60Mbs and require MPEG2 or H264 Long GOP codecs. Fibre circuits can used the same codecs and bitrate as satellite, but can also be in the 200+Mbs for J2K (which is intra), or in some cases uncompressed.

No I dont think so Sad

I have seen 90mbps pushed through on satellite by sky however that’s the only times I’ve seen that
