Sophie Raworth? Steph McGovern? Eurgh. The BBC are getting more like ITV every day with presenters appearing on absolutely everything. One more programme I won't be bothering with.


Is there anything you ACTUALLY like about television?

Yes if they are soliciting reactions and responses to the items being featured.

Which they're not this series by the looks of it. Which isn't a bad thing, as it always seemed rushed and added nothing to the content of the programme.

I guess the dome will spend the week in a crate parked next to the Crimewatch 'mobile incident room' next to each other in the basement car park at NBH?

Two great ideas, right there..

Seriously, if Watchdog is now pre recorded, why not do it in B, around 6pm, which leaves plenty of time to restrike for Newsnight use from mid-evening?
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

Or maybe it’s a missed opportunity for Crimewatchdog

They could do with someone like Esther Rantzen or Angela Rippon. A strong female character who wouldn't be afraid to go up to the heads of companies like Annie did.

A prime example:


Sophie or Steph would just accept her answers and move on. They could even get Eileen to host!
