She plays the needy, entitled, moneyed airhead role brilliantly - in contrast to Alun's mean Yorkshireman and Frank's down-to-earth working-class Midlander. It's a comedy show and benefits from the...

The slogan, though, is More Music Variety, so the obvious question is "more music variety than what?"

If you're defining variety just by listing popular sub-genres of mainstream chart music, all but...

I think this is very different to pulling, for example, a scheduled episode of Casualty because there might be a clash between its subject and the contents of a news bulletin that...

I don;t think it was a lack of funds as such, just the general economic climate at the time.

There were a lot of areas which had been identified as having potential for an ILR station, but which...

How has it proved the audience was there if no-one knows what the audience was? The audience might have been 2,000 enthusiasts.
