I've just realised this thread is basically "so granddad, what were things like in the olden days?"


The fact some people consider 2000 the olden days makes me feel like I should just apply for my pension right now..


Just to date you further, the time span between TVForum's launch and today is the same as between TV-am's launch and TVForum.

The biggest thing TV wise from a presentation point of view happened on 20th June 2000 in which there was a massive power failure at BBC TV Centre, the biggest casualty was BBC News 24 which was rendered useless for around 16 hours.


Whereas today News 24 ( in old money) is useless for about 16 hours every day....

2000 was actually the year I got into TV presentation, thanks to getting the internet that year and finding sites like MHP, TV Ark and TV World. In the September I started keeping an "Idents Tape" which was a VHS of basically every bit of presentation on every channel, with the hope of eventually uploading it all onto a website which never happened. By the time I finally stopped in January 2002, I had four tapes of hundreds of idents including (I think) every single BBC1 balloon that survived the 2000(?) refresh.

Still some stuff on those tapes that I don't think is on Youtube yet, especially from the smaller cable channels like YCTV.

2000 was the year I first saw TV presention websites, as it's the first year we had internet access at home.

Seems strange to think of a time we didn't have it, considering what an essential part of life it's become.

Such a brilliant programme, especially in its live half an hour three times a week slot.
