What’s confusing about it?

I wouldn’t be surprised if The Voice and BGT use a similar format for their semi-finals, there were rumours of a pre-record for BGT.

Sounds like both shows do plan on including a live final though, not sure how that will work.

Sounds like The Voice are using a panel of viewers for their kids show, which is fair enough. If performances have to be pre-recorded in the circumstances that is understandable, especially for BGT, that is fair enough but I hope they don't go down the route some Australian shows have of recording different (and therefore fake) outcomes for the result where a final is pre-recorded but contains a live vote.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

As a one off in the circumstances I wouldn’t be too fussed if they went down the route of recording different endings. It’s not ideal but would mean they could keep a public vote which I think is more important than the reactions. I think Champions suffered for having the result recorded in advance and the winner leaking.

Although from the sound of reports it seems both BGT and The Voice are going to attempt a live final which might be easier said than done.

Now that BGT is weekly they could go down the Strictly route of doing a pre-recorded results show. Record the performance show on Thursday or Friday to air on Saturday, record the results Sunday afternoon to air Sunday evening? Then they could still have an overnight public vote although I’m not sure how feasible it would be.

That would definitely work and not something I had thought of. Closing the vote at 12pm on Sunday would be feasible.

CITV and ITN are partnering up to make a show that will explore the issue of racism, diversity and inclusion through the eyes of children. It is not yet known when it will start airing.

From my experience, children just tend to accept people without question. I geniunely think racism, sexism and homophobia are things they learn from society as they grow up.

100%, however educating children about antiracism at an early age helps them to reject these attitudes that they might go on to develop as they get older.

A lot of people learn it from their parents - hopefully all of the anti racism/discrimination in general posts on social media are helping those who may still have those views.

Of course, they have to get the tone of the documentary right, especially I would say to appeal to an audience of 10-15 year olds.

From the information I've seen, it's going to be aimed at 6-12 year olds, not surprisingly, the same age demo for the CITV channel.

With the news about I’m a Celebrity, it looks like the BGT lives could run into November.

Yeah, they don't have the problem of Ant and Dec being abroad now.

Are still considerations though and plenty of pre-series prep, especially with it being a new location. They usually go out to Aus a couple of weeks beforehand.

I also think BGT want to be done before Strictly starts in late October, and it's already confirmed Simon will join the show virtually initially at least.


Longer term if The X Factor does end up returning next year as supposedly planned and as if it was never axed then being missing this year won't seem so unusual considering the situation, and perhaps the break (effectively two years considering the show as we knew it didn't air last year) will do it good - though only if Cowell has learned from it. Which he probably hasn't.
