<t>It was good to see the old two-person format back at certain times over the Easter period; for example Steve and Emma this morning. Why can't they admit that the emphasis on one person presentation has been a mistake? Strange, though, that pressing the i-button on the Sky box this morning gave pr...

<t>News at Ten seems quite a decent programme. Sir Trevor has a certain degree of gravitas, but Julie E always seems surprised when it ends after so short a period. She is accustomed to programmes of 3 or 4 hours, after all!<br/> <br/> What makes me cringe is the artificial ITV News smile which she ...

It's never been the same since they sacked Rob Butler. His Lunchtime bulletins had a perfect blend of information and informality. It's been asked here before, but I'll try again: does anyone know where he's working now?

I hope he has! He was extremely good when he was covering the early stages a few weeks ago. (And I'm not usually a JT fan!) To my mind he was the best British presenter covering the US elections. Or perhaps the second best; Jon Snow takes some beating!

<t>Today's Guardian has an interesting article on Sky News, written by Andrew Neil. It presents a very worrying picture of the future of the channel, especially its reduced availability in the future and, as a result, potentially much lower viewing figures. There is even a suggestion that its long-t...

<t>I've waited a while before reacting to the new schedule, but it really has become unwatchable for much of the time. The unbearable 2 hours of Kay Burley has extended into the afternoon and I really cannot watch while she is on. On top of that, Andrew Wilson is as bad: a dreadfully distracting dro...

<t>Yes, this all looks daft, but perhaps we should not get too worked up about it. Knowing Sky there will be yet another complete change round in a few weeks. <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> When I was a young trainee teacher we were advised never to chase after a bus, a woman (or man) or a new educational ...

<t>"Surely it cannot be correct?" I agree, but we have got used to these eccentric schedules in recent months.<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> Kay Burley all afternoon? I can avoid Sky News between 12 and 2 with little difficulty, but needing to avoid it all afternoon would cause real problems. <br/> <br/> <...
