  2. The handover from STV overnight referendum coverage to Good Morning Britain on ITV network this morning was pathetic. Cut off in the middle of a sentence.

    Seriously, STV, all you had to do was give a handover point at 05:59:40 for ITV to run their ident and go to GMB, and then you could continue with your coverage for Scotland. STV doing a live programme for ITV network is amazingly rare these days. They should have had a bit of pride in it.

    (On a more positive note, I really do enjoy Good Morning Britain's opening sequence.)

  3. Red Dwarf V model shoot. Taken from the raw model footage on the DVD release.

    "High and Low" was the working title for "Demons & Angels".

  4. Red Dwarf VII model shoot. Taken from the raw model footage on the VII DVD release.
Note the original - and far superior - title to the episode we now know as “Stoke Me a Clipper”.

  5. Red Dwarf, “The End”, 1988.
Dwarf sometimes used the studio itself as the part of the set - see the shot of Lister walking along a lighting gantry in the same episode, or the studio ceiling Cat looks up at in “Dimension Jump”. Doubt it was intended at the top of this picture, though…

  6. “To me, digital projection is just television in public. People leaving their houses to watch a DVD with a bunch of strangers, in a room other than their house.”

    Quentin Tarantino, on his rationale for restoring the New Beverly Cinema with only film projectors — no digital. (via parislemon)

    …”just television”.

    I like Tarantino, but he can be an awful arse at times.

I like the new opening sequence, but this makes my teeth itch. Feels really, really slack.
PICK A CASE AND A FONT WEIGHT AND STICK TO THEM, DAMMIT.

  8. » JAM: The American Fan

    A brand new jingle package from JAM, for WFAN in New York.

    Predictably, I love it. (I think Cuts 1 and 10 are my favourite.)

  10. bohaynowell:

The revolutionary broadcaster David Frost died a year ago today. This is a feature about one of his most important productions, The Frost Programme, dating from 1967, when the show was as its peak. It’s a fascinating look into the production process and the effect of the charismatic Frost on his colleagues and his audience. Fun fact: the Rediffusion studios (in Wembley, London) in which The Frost Programme was recorded are now known as The Fountain Studios, where several well-known shows currently on UK TV are made, such as ITV’s The Cube.

An absolutely extraordinary, hugely valuable find. Anyone with the slightest interest in this era of television needs to read this.
