There's not much crossover in audience, as I'd imagine Bear Grylls is aimed at a younger male audience. This show could have been done on a lower budget and shown on ITV 4 or ITV 2. Bear Grylls...

One of my friends was in a pub in Manchester a few years ago and spotted Dwight Yorke. As he has no interest in football, didn't see the point in bothering him, but noticed Yorke was behaving like an...

Been enjoying Hi de Hi re runs on BBC Two this week and wondered what the cast was like in real life. There's a recent video on You Tube where Ruth Madoc is approached by a Royal Marine in Liverpool...

I thought that, but otherwise it was a hilarious show and the church service was pure Perry and Croft, a well made ensemble piece.

Surely, though, people would much rather watch top quality comedy, drama and documentaries, which were always a strong point of the BBC, than repeats of people selling houses and The One Show. Mind...

It's hard to tell. Obviously comparisons with the eighties are meaningless as there were only four channels and the soaps weren't on as much, but in the last ten years, when multichannel was found in...

I find Anne Hegarty a bit monotonous as well. It's gone from being a show that was good to one that's getting tired, but still a format that would work if it was only on twice a week.

I doubt the quality was any better then. Yet this cheap daytime filler started almost unnoticed in the autumn of 1986, developed a following, and demands to Points of View to give it a later slot as...

I completely agree. I know you get the argument on here where people will say, what else can get 6 or 7 million viewers in the soap slots, but that figure is declining every year as people tire of...

Maybe the BBC were looking to make a bit of money then:) More likely the BBC will have handed the episodes back to Grundy as I doubt they'd have little desire to keep them.

I don't think I'll take the day off for this lol. Yet when I was out of work and Richard and Judy presented, This Morning was actually a good show and not the sleazy, downmarket show it is now.

Might it not get the nostalgia vote, showing these eighties episodes of Neighbours, ex students and teenagers wanting to relive their past? Remember Neighbours was bigger than Coronation St in 1988.

I had a feeling the EE ratings surge was temporary, the soap will probably level out around its natural level of 7 million now.
Also from May ITV will probably benefit from losing football, in the...

It's a programme aimed at women who can't be bothered to change channels and is an insult to the show Richard and Judy created. Even the ironic so bad it's good thing Jeremy Kyle has is lost on This...

BBC One might be better than ITV 1, but that's not saying a lot. Fair does they have some good drama, they cover big sports events well, their news is far better than ITN and Strictly is a good show,...
