    ...do they keep changing the time of the news on TV?

    It really annoys me - I don't watch a lot of TV but I do switch on to watch the news and then the times have changed.

    Small grievance in the light of everything else going on!

    It is the surfeit of news that gets me, it seems virtually impossible to avoid it.

    I must confess - the only news programme I watch is the local Look East at 6.30 pm

    I listen to "The world Tonight" on R4 for the proper news or the 9 O'Clock broadcast on the World Service.

    .. because the football is the most important thing in the world...


    .. to those whose brains are as empty as the pig's bladder they must watch being kicked around.

    Thank you, Ivar. Speaking as someone whose brain is as empty as a pig's bladder, may I return the compliment and say that yours is full of shyt?

    I wouldn't normally have said that but snotty anti-sportism riles me. Nothing personal. Me, I would never have wanted any daughter of mine to marry a man who didn't like sport.

    Just the sort of attitude I expect from devotees of the "wonderful game". Please change your name to something much more appropriate to indicate your intolerance.

    Posters! Worried family christmas dinner will be cancelled this year? If it is, simply print out this thread and attach one of each of the posts to individual chair backs to remind you of Yuletide family bants!

    Watch Sky or BBC 24 News ...the time never changes and often neither does the news.

    ^pm and 10pm are the same on weekdays, it's only at weekends that sport dominates, but intensely irritating if you detest that silly game played by men running around after a big white ball. We have a stock of programmes recorded to watch though, Heartbeat, Gordon Ramsey etc.
