Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

I'm not sure what he is on about claiming people are criticising nationality of other members. Some people criticised changes to the ABC logo recently, and he took it as an insult to all United States citizens. I was tempted to point out BBC, ITV, Sky channel logos get their share of criticism too,...

Re: Radio 1's Big Weekend

Different times, different station. You're right. I didn't mean to sound critical of Wrighty. As a kid in the 90s I loved listening to him and the team. That 1988 video was before my time, but having watched the full programme he's the one that seems to be most light-hearted about the whole gig. Th...

Radio 1's Big Weekend

Radio 1 is doing some Big Weekend programming (of sorts) this weekend, and are presenting from the roof of Broadcasting House - so they can have more presenters together in person (I think). It doesn't sound that great, and we've already heard police cars etc from the streets below. Chris Stark post...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Yes, the tabloid headlines write themselves: "Not-So-Great British Rail", "What's So Great About Great British Rail?" etc. I could sortof understand it is they were going to go for initials GBR and use it commonly like SNCF in France but it would take years to catch on. Anyway, w...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

My nearest big Sainsbury's has just got rid of the mini Habitat store inside it, in favour of a couple more shelves of Habitat soft furnishings, bedding and cookware scattered throughout the home section of the main store. There's a single Habitat desk display but now no furniture to speak of. The m...

Re: Currys PC World Dixons Carphone Warehouse Team Knowhow to become "Currys"

I'm devastated to see the Carphone Warehouse disappear, as I live my life following the values of the Carphone Warehouse.

Re: The official recipe box and door to door selling thread

When I was a student, a flatmate of mine changed our gas/electric supplier to Scottish Gas (British Gas) based on a door-to-door salesman's patter. The tariffs were much more expensive than the carefully selected supplier I'd previously chosen, so thankfully it could be undone over the phone later d...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

There's a certain arrogance about firms when they do this, declaring "it's pronounced 'Aberdeen'".

Except it isn't. You might say it is or want it to be, but the letters on the page do not form a word that says that.

Re: BBC Radio 1 Relax

Quite like it so far, but would've been appreciated a few months before now..! I liked the music on the Decompression Session but found the presenter/wellness therapist (or whatever) a bit too patronising. I'm maybe a bit old for it. I do think this is a welcome addition to replay archive content, b...
