STV Central Reporting Scotland
What a brilliant game Ram Ray was.
MoM was starting to become a very good programme in it's own right imo. What a shame that budget cuts affected it.

From the clips posted we can see that Jack Osborne at least co hosted twice.

Saturday show down was becoming pretty good aswell and every week it improved. If ITV had kept open one of its in-house children's production unit, then maybe the series would had lasted a couple of more years but alas, " as part of ITV's then on-going process of restructuring ITV Productions" The money saved was used for a crap cooking show.
Is the next post dreaded?

It's still not "another incarnation" of the same show. Just like CBBC's Saturday Show was in no way connected to Central's 1980s Saturday Show, even though they were both Saturday morning kid's magazine shows.

A show that has the same name, timeslot and format it is, a "relaunch" of a previous show it isn't.


Well said. There was also TSW's region-only The Saturday Show, which was the first, and they renamed that to Freeze Frame once Central came up with their networked effort that used the name. Different shows, entirely.

For a great example of TV formats with the same name, consider 'The Tube'...

Am I referring to the famous live pop music magazine show that Tyne Tees made for Channel Four in the early 80s?
Am I referring to Carlton's series about life on the London Underground?
Am I referring to the BBC Two documentary series about how the London Underground is coping with a massive growth in usage?

So, no, Channel 5's Saturday Show doesn't belong here. It's not aimed at kids, it's just more bland 'Saturday Kitchen' style guff from a broadcaster that trawls through the skips of other channels for ideas.

Sorry for posting in the wrong thread, it was Saturday Morning I was bleary eyed I think I was responding to a post. Forgive me. However, that said...

Good Morning Britain.
Am I referring to a breakfast news magazine programme?

They don't have anything to do with each other in terms of who produces the output, but from an audience perspective as well as sharing a name they share a format, timeslot and channel.

In the exact same way the current Good Morning Britain has nothing to do with the TV-am version , even though some people seem to act like it does.


The current incarnation of a previous version.
Honestly, some people Wink

This has to be the funniest clip of Number 73 I've seen- a band performing a song about cannabis! Surely someone working on the show must have known what the song was about!

There's a clip floating around where some X Factor contestant was on Dick and Dom singing a cover of Rocking All Over the World. He was clearly heard replacing the word Rockin with an expletive and when the gallery realised what he was singing he was quickly stopped from singing any more.

EDIT: Here is the clip not sure what the hells up with the resolution.
