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
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!
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:
By my reckoning he's about my age, but my God *look* at the number of things he's worked on!
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.
