ITV just showed a next slide after Coronation Street which said "The National Telelvision Awards"

Does no one check things like this before they go to broadcast? It's not the first time I've seen this sort of thing (I've also seen it on BBC 2 recently). It looks so unprofessional!

Usually if there's manual continuity graphics created (not automated) it's QC'd by one of the Producers. Clearly that's been missed.

There was a very wobbly jib shot at the start of Through the Keyhole last night, did they not check the footage before it was transmitted?

I don't know how true these rumours are but it seems that the usual start date for BGT of the second/third Saturday in April will not be followed this year, if they turn out to indeed, be true.

It seems as if May 6th is now the most likely start date due to The Voice Live Shows etc...

Has anyone else heard anything on this subject? May 6th start date for BGT would mean live shows would be pushed all the way back to a week in mid/late June! It'll seem strange.

I suppose ITV could try airing BGT and the voice together without any problems but the main problem there is do people really want to watch two talent shows straight after eachother? Probably not, that's where viewing figures could potentially dip.
