    Great to hear that Miriam (O'Reilley) has won her unfair dismissal from Countryfile - I wish they would get rid of John Craven, he looks about 60 anyway and we've had to put up with him for the last 40 years. And what about Adam's father?

    No, but the Beeb is definitely being sexist - OK Jan Leeming is an exception, but Cilla Black "left" before she was pushed, Esther Ranzen rarely appears as does Gloria Honeyford.
    Bruce Forsyth, John Craven,Terry Wogan, Michael Parkinson, to name but a few - had they been female would they have been on TV in their late middle-age years? I doubt it.
  3. I agree, jon, women are eye-candy wrt television.
    It's not right but it will take decades to sort out.
    I wonder if the outcome of this case will have any effect in the short-term? Since the case Miriam has earned a mere £500 - I wish I had the balls to go through hell like that!
