ITV Media has Family Fortunes on it now. It suggests 8x60 min episodes for Sunday's from September.

An hour slot seems a bit long when even Vernon Kay’s Celebrity version was only 45 minutes.


It was extended to an hour for some of the later series, as well as a number of the Christmas specials.

It did say Sundays, they've now changed it to weekends. Probably is still for Sundays, I guess they don't want to give it away given that people can see those pages.

They used to be behind a registration wall, it's good that they aren't now and we can see them but given that there's an account who have started tweeting the details on them (and Digital Spy is being watched), perhaps they've decided to be a bit more vague.

But yeah, Sundays is a bit of a surprise, I was expecting Saturdays. Guessing it'll be 8pm.


Re Digital Spy being watched, it's being watched by BARB regards ratings figures, not sure why ITV would be watching the site for any reason?

Pretty sure Dr No tonight is the oldest thing ever shown on primetime ITV, 58 years old. I know they've shown the first episode of Corrie in primetime a couple of times, but not in the last two years.

I'm not slagging it off, because I think it's more interesting than just cycling through the Daniel Craig ones over and over again. It reminds me of when they showed them all in order in 1999 - the OO-Heaven season, in the run-up to the premiere of Tomorrow Never Dies which they had before Sky - and it became a proper talking point and lots of people made a point of watching them all.

It was all quite a coup when first screened on ITV in 1975 (and by then 13 years old)

Thames, ATV and Trident (aka YTV/TT) were also accused of unfair advertising surcharges

A friend of mine had an issue of Broadcast from 1975 which reported that ITV were concerned the premiere of Dr No would coincide with freak tropospheric conditions which would cause picture disturbance in some regions.

As that page would suggest, the Bond premieres on ITV would always alternate between weekdays and weekends, so LWT and Thames could both benefit from them.

I was thinking earlier with the clip of the BBC Wales Christmas continuity in another thread how long it used to take films to make it to TV, something we largely take for granted now. Was this due to cinemas and the movie industry seeing television as competition, and in the 60s to 80s were filmed often rereleased to capture a new audience?

I don't know, I have it in my mind the gap used to be about 5 years for most films, but there were exceptions. The Sound of Music took about 15 years, and the Beeb paid a fortune to show it.

I think Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz didn't debut on TV until the 1970s.

And Disney movies would usually take ages to come to TV, for example, Sleeping Beauty first aired on Christmas Day 1994.
Can I have your attention please?

That's true - indeed I think The Lion King only premiered a few years ago.

Lest we forget that first ever programme on The Disney Channel was the "UK television premiere" of The Jungle Book, 28 years after its cinematic release.

Some have only been premiered in recent times as well, like The Lion King above. I’m sure Jungle Book was only premiered recently, as with Beauty and the Beast.

(I’m talking about the original animated versions).
