Don’t think you can attach PDF’s on Twitter just yet! 😉

Nope, you can certainly link to them though which would be a hell of a lot more accessible than a scanned image/photograph


On a visual medium like Twitter? Hardly.

Unless they’ve copied the text of the document into the image description, it’s actually hugely inaccessible to those who use screen readers and the like.

Even then there is a character limit on the alt description.

I know earlier in the thread it was said that live broadcasts will almost always have standby programmes just in case they conclude earlier, get postponed or fall of air.

In light of the Jeremy Kyle situation, and more specifically STV getting an announcement out stating in a change ot the schedule Real Deal was airing I wonder if there is some kind of alternative schedule for all programmes - or at least a small number of programmes (i.e. Coast) which they'd put out, with associated pre-recorded announcements, at short notice. Real Deal is a fairly safe show for daytime ITV, whilst the quiz shows I guess might have repeat episodes on standby if there is a legal reason around one of the contestants preventing a new episode airing.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Not quite substitute programme, but shunted about programme. Series 12 of Who Dares Wins started on BBC One 3 weeks ago, it ran for 2 episodes and is no longer in the schedule. This show appears to just be filler these days, it never seems to get a continuous run.

Couple of years ago, one morning there was a very short notice change of episode of Homes under the hammer. The episode that was due to have gone out that morning featured a house in Salford. Overnight, in Salford, there had been a fatal house fire, involving children, and so the edition was replaced with another. The BBC1 Scotland announcer said "and now, Homes under the hammer, this episode is a change from those in listings".

Fascinating.
