Are there really people in Scotland who don't understand English, thus requiring a Gaelic programme?

That was on ESPN, because I remember John Murray saying a few days later on Five Live "I'm nore sure ESPN will be thinking it's so great to be here after that".

It is a normal episode of Crimewatch, though, with new appeals, and with the update scheduled at 10.35 as usual. Indeed it's one of the highest profile episodes for ages because it's the anniversary...

The reason I mention it is in response to people saying biopics don't rate and they're only good for BBC4. Depends what it's a biopic of. A rags-to-riches story set in the sixties with lots of music...

This is based on wonky maths which seems to be under the impression they'll be able to buy in all BBC content for twenty million quid a year, apparently based on the idea that RTE do that, which they...

I think that latter point could be made about virtually every programme, of course there was massive interest in Who when it came back because it was such a novelty. Any show now in its eighth series...

I think you're overselling the importance of the Champions League there a bit. Ben Shephard and Dave Jones present the secondary games on Sky and it hardly trivialises the competition. Matt Smith has...

As mentioned, they've done it quite a lot, they've trailed Mad Men and Game Of Thrones quite a lot when they've been starting series. Course, Sky always say how ratings don't count because of Sky+...

Well, much as I find Green an acquired taste I thought he was perfectly good on Match of the Day, he commentated on the match in a professional manner. What I don't like about Green is when he goes...

I still don't understand how six episodes a week of Emmerdale a week is fine, but five episodes a week of The One Show (which certainly offers more variety to the casual viewer) is not.

Yes, exactly that. Holby City is considered weak because it often faces appalling competition from ITV, The One Show is up against Emmerdale every night. That also means there are hardly any casual...

Yes, I was going to suggest in the modern era of The X Factor, since it really took off, because certainly in its first few series it wasn't all that and was indeed regularly beaten by Strictly.
