I watched "The Best of Men" last night. Excellent! Worth watching on the iplayer if you missed it.


I saw that. Yeah it was really good.

I've just caught the end of Rhode Island Rebellion on Man vs Food nation on food network! It's repeated quite regularly for those who like international rugby league and huge portions of food!

In other words she's moved from one section of the Met Office to another. Perhaps she didn't fancy moving to Salford with BBC ? (FYI BBC forecasters used to be based at White City with ITV based at building on south bank near National Theatre).


I don't think that ITV presenters are attached to the Met Office. According to Wikipedia, the BBC presenters are actually employed by the Met Office.

I don't think the weather forecast presentation has moved to Salford.

Probably because it's usually raining in Lancashire. The best you can hope for is dull and overcast.

Fred Talbot taught my cousins science and according to my aunt he is a lovely bloke and very intelligent.

BBC4 repeated the documentary about Paul Simon & the 'Graceland' album the other day. It should still be available on iPlayer - it was excellent. :)

ITV weather forecasts supplied by the Met Office. Both BBC & ITV use a mix of genuine forecasters & presenters (don't get me started on some of their 'personalities' however as having worked with several . . . . . ).
FYI I'm ex Met. Office & my 'test' broadcast was for the weather in Lancashire ! (Think I was rejected as did forecast as a rap as was after a good lunch :rolleyes: )

Did you make a 30-second tape so they could play it on loop every day?

Tonight, on ITV4, 'World of Sport: The Seventies'. Nostalgic fun for those who remember it.

And for those of you who are too young to have been around at the time, yes, television broadcasting was almost entirely in shades of orange, brown and beige in those days. :D

Strikeback was full of improbable shoot-outs, car smashes and explosions. In between, the producers managed to fit in a gratuitous sex scene. By the end, once again the Brits had given the foreigners a kicking.

I just can't put my finger on why I like it so much.

Ah, dear old Dickie - the cheery counterpoint to Des Lynam's more serious demeanour on 'Grandstand'. Sports broadcasting was most definitely 'tache territory back then. He never did finish painting that ceiling...

Bit harsh. Both excellent actors IMO and would like to see more of them on tv.
