TV Social Media Pres Gold

This clip has appeared,  which is another ITV promotion with John Thaw.  We have to wonder if Thaw did 15 take with each company name? 

A nice and interesting Tweet chain this morning from Dom at BBC Scotland, going behind the scenes of a typical shift in Pres A.

Does BBC One Scotland still do that odd thing of taking most of the 5.55am junction from BBC One network and then having a BBC One Scotland ident/link into Breakfast? Never understood why they did that.

I always understood this bit here being about making sure that a cleaner didn't start cutting up random sources overnight: 

There's also an alarm on the system in London in case control's not been handed over by a certain time. One morning it went off, so I checked the checklist, which said to call the head of pres to let them know.

The checklist was soon updated to say to call Pres A first.

(I'd managed to wake up both the recently retired head of pres, then the current one, who was almost out the door before the pres director called - they were in the room but had just forgotten to call)

On the topic of BBC, a collection of BBC Video World openers, bumpers and closings, in all COW's glory: 

Not too familiar about this service - from what I saw, seems like a tape subscription service with updates on the Beeb and British current affairs? Can someone enlighten me about that?

I’m not sure if it was discussed in the purple place or on Twitter, but essentially it was a video and magazine service the BBC offered around the world to viewers wanting to see the best of British TV, with some news and current affairs material. From what I remember they often had single episodes of dramas and comedies on them.

The Central "globe logo"? It looks even less like a globe than it does a cake!
