I notice CB has been missing for the last two days and obviously didn’t look too happy before that on the snippets I saw of him earlier in the week. I cannot for the life of me understand how you can go from covering Live at 5 to ‘bit part’ and not even get a credit in the announcements. He is without doubt in JT’s league, heir apparent I thought?
I’m not happy that Colin Brazier has not been given a major slot in the new lineup. I would have thought that he would have been one of the more prominent presenters in this new schedule, as he has been doing a really good job in the early evening slot when Jeremy Thompson was away.
Oh well, at least Steve Dixon and Martin Popplewell are still presenting the news during the weekends.
Colin doesnt have his own slot yet Andrew Wilson comes back from the States and gets his own weekend show. He even gets his name in the title. I think they are trying to kill off sky news. If I were Colin I would leave!
Whats with Steve Dixons illegal hours? He starts at 12 and works til midnight, there were a couple of hours of Helen and a couple of Paula but he was there for 12 hours plus however long it takes him to prepare his show, how longs that going to last?
Its pretty unreal. I get the feeling its not completed. Apart from Julie’s great personality, her show is quite boring.
I think Kay Burley’s 4 hours is without doubt the best show on the schedule, she’s always moving from different locations, cameras panning around, zooming in and out, the show also as great use of the newswall. I like the tiny chats she as with Jon on Sports and Michael on Business, instead of just linking to them..
Speaking of sports, I enjoy it more when the presenter and sports presenter talk about sports, we’ve seen it for the last few years on Live at Five. I’m glad its now apart of Kay’s show too.
Another thing i like about Kay’s show, especially last Thursday, was it had, or seem to had very little schedule. its was just rolling… After 2 hours of the dvd from the high court, Kay cracked on with a interview with Jon (sorry, surname escapes me at the moment) about his book, and his life. it was quite laid back, there was no real rush to get to the top stories or adverts etc. we could see the headlines scrolling across the bottom of the screen anyway.. Kay seem to be enjoying the show, she seems very jolly.
Martin’s Sky.com / News is ok.. but i think thats more about him, rather than the content of his show. What people are reading or writing on the internet doesn’t bother me.. If I want to know what people were writing, reading or searching I can do that online!
I’m glad Steve Dixon as a set schedule now, its been a long time coming.
and Anna Jones reduced to linking to packages for 2 hours a night What a waste!
