If it's related, why 'The pig is coming'?
Surely Marie Ashby hasn't let herself go that much!!

LOL! - bless her, I've had Sky for about six months now...and i've been bloody iritated by the fact that one month i'm told that my ITV region is Central (west) with Bob Warman & Llewella (love ya, but don't know how to spell your name)Bailey and Jo(can't warm to you me duck) Mailin...and then told by Mr SKY - you don't live in the midlands after all, you're a Yorkshire lad!!!!! - then we are blessed by Calander!!!! (although, I think the Christine/Duncan one in the studio/one on location thing works BRILLLIANTLY) I am an East Midlander, I want Marie & Kevin...I see most of the reporters outside Nottingham Court most days (I work nearby) bloody frustrating when my 'local' news tells me of something happening in Leeds, York, Wherever when I want the news from Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield etc...

Couldn't agree with you more!
So you either work at Capital One or the Broadmarsh Bus Station!!!

JESUS!!! one or the other (and it's the one where the bog's haven't got sh!t up the walls- take your pick, capital one or broadmarsh!) - doesn't help either way!!! - we had an email a few months ago saying the level of 'acceptabiltiy of the 'facilities' ie toilets was 'UNACCEPTABLE!!' - loving it!!!!!!(remember - ALWAYS CLEAR UP YOUR CRAP!

I can't believe they're using BBCi's 'i' - it's exactly the same!

Well I was watching ITV2 last night and pressed red, and ITVi has changed a bit. There is now a thing called GTV, and it has about 5 free games to play. I wonder why there free?? Looks like the type of game to be pay normally., Anyway, could this 'Pig is coming' have something to do with a new game or something??....Anyway, why have they called their games section GTV??? It just makes me think of Granada TV!!!

Indeed they've created GTV on the new silver curved cornered opening ITVi panel.
The GTV games aren't free, they all offer a taster or training, after a short while it comes up with 'You can continue to play this game at a price of 60p, or return to the main menu'.

Some from the brief parts that i've played, they're all great games!

It's the "itv" i - and I believe they had it first (late 1998 - I don't think BBCi has been going that long!)

Nobody is disputing that, the person above claimed that itv had pinched the "i" from BBCi, when in fact the "i" in question was in use in the itv logo prior to the BBC adopting it for BBCi.
