I think they took the term ‘overkill’ to new levels last year. I do like YIR programmes, but not when they are practically wall-to-wall until mid January and seem to end up being the same two or three all of the time. I remember I ended up watching News 24 to get some actual current news. Doesn’t look as if it is going to be much better this year, either.
