I watched that too. Hehe, highlight for me was Meridian's Debbie Middleton, and that weather presenter on the small cable channel.


Was that the guy on Herts tv? That was excellent- I loved his criticism of American software Very Happy

Yeah, and it looked like it was Microsoft Powerpoint!

More avid viewers would have spotted a Kally Adderkin-Hall, a Tara Eugene AND a Steve Taylor on the TV Naughtiest Blunders 5...ever!
There were also numerous presenters from S4C aswell! But no-one on this thread really seems THAT bothered about welsh presentation issues anymore.....and failed to spot the relevance of that program.

Ho-hum Rolling Eyes

Cant wait for those breakflashes to become a permanent fixture.......

There was one outtake where there were two presenters: a guy and a girl both in pink t-shirts. Anyone know who they are / what that was from? Was it S4C?

Sadly I didn't see this programme, but I refuse to believe the lovely Tara would ever swear! *Puts fingers in ears* La la la.. Can't hear you..

The S4C~ people sound like they were from Planed Plant -- there are loads that present that though, longest running is probably Rhydian Bowen-Phillips now [who still *insists* on singing at every given opportunity -- anyone remember his boyband, Mega?] Dearie me.

Some stuff from yesterday then.
Here's a few examples of the BBC's graphics for the Elections next week, with the E design ~
* * * *
Obviously one for BBC Wales and the other BBC Cymru -- which do we prefer? I'm going for the Welsh ones to be honest, they do make some nice graphics on Newyddion. And another opportunity to see that lovely newsroom in Cardiff. Notice that the metal rail isn't there around the semi-circular soft seats.


Here's another pic of Derek -- just cos he's a star.
And one of Steve and Lucy at the end of yesterday's show having a giggle ~

Actually, never mind all this Kay Alexander propaganda, dear old thing that I'm sure she is, I think it's of greater social significance that from 30th May, Derek Brockway will be available for the nation's viewing pleasure every evening on his full Wales Today forecast.

All his advice to potato growers, duvet washers and pot-holers alike, and his lovely Bits and Bobs section.. I'm sure he'd show Shefali Oza, Dianne Oxberry and various others how to be a top regional weather presenter -- it's all in the gestures, the mistakes and the cringeworthy yet chucklesome jokes! Of course, they wouldn't have to choose between them, since Derek doesn't get going till about 6.55pm, which is after England have finished. What a funny man he is.


And finally, why does the West get to keep their website on their production info -- why haven't they also had to grudgingly change to itv1west.com?

Well that's not fair. Gits. Well, their show's rubbish anyway! Razz


EDIT: After hearing another voiced report on a GMTV HTV bulletin by Tom Barton, decided to do a quick search on him, and found he has his own website! http://www.tombarton.co.uk. And very professional it is too, his CV can be found at this page:
http://www.tombarton.co.uk/cv/tombarton.html.
By my reckoning he's about my age, but my God *look* at the number of things he's worked on! Surprised What a clever chap too. HTV were funding his scholarship it seems and now he's doing work for them. I reckon we'll see more of him in the coming months, like Lee Waters.

I wont argue with on the HTV West News - the only good thing is their weather forcast cos its presented by Charlie Neil and Emma Jesson. If I had the bloke who does HTV West's GMTV bulletins on Wales id be screaming "come back Andrew Jones all is forgiven" lol

Ive just seen Tom's report - he is quite a good reporter, dont see his face though. And look at his CV, A in practically ever exam he's ever done. And it says he's a trainee so I guess he might read the news soon?

And this morning we have Tara again on GMTV - Shocked im shocked cos Thursday means Sally Johnson.

Looks like Andrew Jones, Sally and Jonathan are all taking a week off this week then!

Interesting article by David Williamson in W. Mail.

Aspect TV which is co-owned by Jamie Owen begins its biggest project yet.
‘What do you do all day ‘ interviews entrepreneurs and impresarios around the UK.
Those being grilled by Working Lunch’s Adrian Chiles include Richard Branson ,Eddie Jordan Cameron Mackintosh and Camelot’s Dianne Thompson. (BBC2 next wk)
There is already talk of a second series.
So another stage in the rise of Jamie owen to media magnate. Smile

Unfortunetly, Yes. I have a copy of their CD album Embarassed and even worse, a English translation of one of their "hits" also on CD. Sad

Should I be admitting stuff like this

Erm... Prrrrobably not, I'd say. Wink

But hey, we'll let you off -- so long as you don't have a copy of CIC's album, the pop group Sarra Elgan-Rees was in with that girl and two other guys.. I remember their Christmas special!

I don't mind Rhydian, he speaks a bit fast sometimes [don't they all on PP?], but I just wish he wasn't always singing, and on other shows. I saw two others from Rownd a Rownd having a go at singing the other week too, one of them used to do Uned 5 [Carwyn Llyr]. They're all at it!

And as for Jamie Owen, he will be the poweful man in Wales one day -- and lots richer than Huw Edwards.. Wink
Did his company make that series Magic Islands that's just ended on 2W as well I wonder?

This THURSDAY, we're in the Valley constituency of Caerphilly. Ron Davies has stood down as Labour's candidate. But has he left his replacement Jeff Cuthbert enough time to fight off a strong challenge from Plaid Cymru's Lindsay Whittle?

If you have views on any of these subjects, then please e-mail now to sharpend@itv1wales.com.

And you might just see them aired in the programme, this week at the later time of 11.30pm.

Next TUESDAY at 10.30pm, we'll bring you the men at the top of the four main parties in Wales. Sharp End Debates ends by putting Labour's Rhodri Morgan, Conservative's Nick Bourne, Plaid Cymru's Ieuan Wyn Jones and Liberal Democrats' Mike German into the spotlight.

We'll explore each party's manifesto with the leaders and ask them the questions you want
answered. So if you have anything you want brought to their attention, or just want to email through your views, send them to sharpend@itv1wales.com
