Very surprised that we were allowed to see The Little House earlier this week. And it was very good too.

Guess the reason is that it's only a 2-parter and STV's biscuit box had enough pennies in it...

This is a first class summary of the situation. Not at all simplistic.

The trouble is that there are so many daft (Scots word for silly) people out there that think paying Sky £50 pounds a month,...

Yes, great that it was dumped a couple of months ago and replaced by the far superior Yesterday channel in the evenings.

Now, let's get rid of the recent additional joke channel, Sky 3+1. That...

Cannot believe that that channel is the top news channel in the USA but, if so, that says it all about many of our transatlantic friends. Totally insular and clueless.

Yes it's pathetic.

Jim White has always been a smarmy know-it-all shxx, even when he was on Scotsport years ago. But he reaches, or plumbs new depths, on this miserable promo.

It's a very strange programme.

It has lots of aerial coverage around Scotland, obviously taken from a helicopter. This sounds OK but virtually all the coverage I've seen appears to have taken place...

Yes, I recall that everyone was delighted to see ITV back on air, because what the Beeb provided during the strike was very poor indeed.

Yes, I realise about the pay TV possibility on DTT, but I still thought there was a 3 channel limit on Freeview.

Definitely paranoia! There is no chance whatsoever of ITV1 being encrypted. It is a mass-market channel that still produces most of the top-watched shows in the UK.

It still largely relies on...

Just watch the STV News at 6.00pm.

If the local section is STV West, you are getting your pictures from Black Hill. If it's STV East, you're receiving Craigkelly.

There are lots of really nice fresh Pinot Grigios around and they are a joy to drink.

The trouble is that there are just as many really weak, insipid and tasteless Pinot Grigios as well.

I thought she looked very uncomfortable, peering at the Autocue, through half-closed eyes.

The new hair is an improvement though.
