It was the last of the series this week and Raymond Snoddy's last show.

When it returns it will be in the new studio and will be presented by Samira Ahmed.

Do you think she'll get anymore out of the BBC staff than Ray did?

I think she will, but Ray will be missed. I think it should be 30 minutes long though, there would be plenty content to fill it and would allow for longer debates.

I agree Ray will be missed, I wonder if he is retiring or moving elsewhere. Good call getting Samira Ahmed to front it though, she will do well in the role.

Snoddy was a terrible presenter and a BBC lap dog who spent most of his time agreeing with the BBC suit he was questioning. Let's hope we have a far more robust approach from the new presenter.

She isn't all that bad on the Sunday morning show. I don't think Newswatch will be anything heavier then it is as present. Hardly anyone watches anyway.

Everytime that I have watched it has just been viewers with big chips on their shoulders who think they know far more about broadcasting that the BBC i.e. typical of many DS writers.

Yes, on the review of the last 8 years they showed a clip of some 'chip on the shoulder' man who was complaining about God knows what saying something like 'I expcect better of the BBC' A real pain in the butt who complained about anything and everthing

What makes you think you'll get any different from Samira? They're not going to get any more out of the BBC bigwig sat there. If anyone was crap, it was Kevin Bakhurst. I commented on DS, and tweeted at the time (not including his username but he still clearly searched for his name!) that he sits there looking as if someone's just pissed in his shoes, while telling Raymond Snoddy why the viewers are wrong to complain about anything because he's always right.

I tweeted Ray on Sat after I saw Newswatch, but while sometimes he does reply, he didn't this time.

Did anyone? All ever remember is the BBC telling us the viewer that we were wrong and the BBC were (as always right)

It was not his decision to leave.

I swear that you two must watch a different version of the show to the rest of us

Exactly right.

I don't think I was trolling. However detailed a reply that the BBC give for why something was done in a particular way there will be someone who writes it off as wrong or lies even though they have no knowledge or experience of television i.e. typical of many of the posters on DS.

Oh come off it, the kind of crap that gets spouted by the BBC bigwigs on Newswatch and POV is the same thing we've heard a million times before, and just doesn't wash.

If you're that easily taken in, then I've got some magic beans I'd like to sell you.

You're not the only one he talks to on Twitter

...there will be someone who writes it off as wrong or lies even though they have no knowledge or experience of television...
And then, as if to prove the point...

There is no known case on Newswatch of any BBC suit admitting a mistake had been made in programming.If any programme should be made independently outside the BBC it is Newswatch.

Firstly, why? You didn't in your post. Secondly, I can't anyway as it was a Direct Message. (Which probably means I shouldn't have mentioned it anyway )

I'm sure you're wrong but neither of us can prove it so we'll just have to leave it there.

Opinions on the "New" Newswatch? seems a bit rushed to me, and no studio guests yet.

Newswatch presenter to BBC editor: Please sir, tell the viewers why you are right and the viewers are idiots.

BBC editor: The BBC just doesnt do things that are wrong. Its not in our DNA. The whole concept of the BBC making a mistake is just unfathomable. You just have to believe that is true.

Newswatch presenter to BBC editor: Thank you sir for taking time out of your busy schedule to speak to us and correct those moaning ill-informed viewers.

I assume tonight's programme will be all about Jimmy Savile. Perhaps we'll hear from Peter Rippon, the editor of Newsnight, although probably Helen Boaden will be wheeled out to say nobody knew anything about anybody.
