That's as maybe, but the chart publication date moving from Tuesday to Sunday in 1987 wasn't down to a change of on sale day for singles, but because they compiled the chart faster.



Yes, he moved...

Well, ITV show the first episode of Coronation Street every ten years when all the hardcore fans will have seen that before and it's totally unlike modern day Coronation Street. You could say the...

No, because as I said, ITV4 don't have any live announcers, because almost all the programmes are pre-recorded, so there would have been nobody there to do it.

Not quite - singles were released on a Monday and the chart compiled sales from Monday to Saturday (no shops were open on Sundays in those days). The reason it wasn't published until Tuesday is...

I seriously doubt that was ITV's fault, I'm assuming the referee is told how long the break should be between full time and extra time so all the broadcasters around the world can show adverts and be...

It's probably more to do with the fact that the FA Cup highlights can go on the iPlayer immediately, while Match of the Day can't go on until a few days later, so they can do two shows and put the FA...

Preferred the blank screen, to be honest. I notice it wasn't in HD for the first few penalties, presumably they found an SD feed from somewhere. It's at times like this you see the flaw with ITV4...

No, but the two aren't mutually exclusive and it is possible for programmes to be informative and serious and also get high ratings. When they showed Young War Widows the other week, it rated...

I assume it's because the production was a bit of a disaster - hence why it was only one show and not a series as planned - so they didn't especially want to promote it with all guns blazing and...

They wouldn't have been able to buy the rights to the FA Cup exclusively, not least because the final is a protected event which has to be shown on free TV. Since 2001 the FA have always given the...

Pretty sure Mowbray is nailed on to get the FA Cup Final for the Beeb, it's a bit like when ITV had both at the turn of the century, and Brian Moore and Clive Tyldesley had the FA Cup Final, which...

I turn the television off.

There is no reason for anyone to have to watch "something average" on TV for the sake of it.
