For me personally, Channel 4 has become the most insufferable, annoying, and frequently irresponsible broadcaster there probably has ever been in the UK. (And that's saying something.) Amongst other...

I think we can safely assume that most if not all of the DLT editions of Top of the Pops will be shown this year; they were supposedly just suspended whilst police enquiries were taking place (even...

Don't really want to take this thread off-topic, but building new housing estates on flood plains isn't helping either. Of course 'new' technology may at least alleviate global warming to a degree...

Truly, truly, truly shockingly dire in every respect. Absolutely no redeeming features whatsoever and was downright offensive for much of the first half; only carried on watching just to see if it...
