The popular truism for the past decade is that broadcast TV is dead. However, recent earnings from filmed entertainment companies suggest anything but. Filmed entertainment, including TV, is booming, and the share price ticker tells the tale.
What has grabbed the most headlines has been our decision to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer, the adhan, live each morning. We hope that in broadcasting the call to prayer each morning at sunrise - at around 3am - it will recognise Muslims observing Ramadan and will encourage interested parties to find out more about this religious festival means.
So what if the 11-year-old has shone round after round in the competition, excelling at every test of intelligence put before her? She's got a bit of hair between her nose and her mouth and it is holding her back, people. Take out the tweezers, heat up the wax and roll up your sleeves: we've got an innocent 11-year-old waiting to be objectified.
The hue and cry at Channel 4's Ramadan broadcasts and call to prayer highlights the way religion is jumping back into the headlines in an unhelpfully sensationalist fashion.
Glastonbury is for me, like for so many others, a wonderful journey through the landscape of music and experience, a time when the best comes out in people and something truly extraordinary happens. I'm a bit of a veteran these days, with too many memories to mention, though I do recall at my first ever festival standing in the stone circle field with the old perimeter picket fence lying flattened on the ground and people without tickets pouring over it... the desire to be a part of it is still there, people just come through the front gates these days.
Just because Wolfy is a nonconformist woman it doesn't mean she's any less beautiful, any less hygienic or any less of a woman. Men would not I believe be judged so harshly. I look forward to seeing the rest of her journey progress.
Aside from losing two of the top housemates on Friday night, the show has been ever so dramatic throughout this week. We've seen the spoilt brat Gina clearly forget that she's on TV and kick off so badly that she was issued a warning within the first six hours of her stay - Nice!
Every month, live from the Leicester Square Theatre, I host Mat Ricardo's London Varieties. It's the show I have always wanted to watch, and it's a bit of a childhood dream come true to actually be in charge of it. There are surprises, special guests, one-time only collaborations... What I'm trying to say is that it's fun, and a lot of it.
I feel that I share both a special bond with the show and the pain of the Stark family. Therefore, I've come up with some sure fire ways to ride out the ensuing nine or so months until the next series arrives. **Warning cryptic mild spoilers alert**
The way it works is that you'd still have the same amount of hours in a week as you do now (168) but only six days in a week. So we could get rid of Monday altogether. Which is fine, because Mondays are stupid. Only The Bangles would be upset about losing Mondays, and they've already made their money
The fourth season of US sitcom 'Arrested Development' was launched by Netflix on Sunday morning - all 15 episodes at once, for your binge viewing pleasure.
Bill Pertwee, who died recently, always cited Dad's Army as his best work. He knew it would endure, he said. And how it has. Always voted in the t...
Streaming is so fast, and as a mum, a quick fix remedy to entertaining and educating a child, and in my case a life-saver for my jet-lagged little'un thanks to shows like Strawberry Shortcake.
C'mon bankers. Re-invent banking. This is a big opportunity. Then you'll find your customers will come up with a more, ahem, grown up and positive sobriquet.
During its seven-year run (1997-2003) Buffy the Vampire Slayer won three Emmys and was listed tenth on Entertainment Weekly's 100 Greatest Shows of All Time, second on Empire's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time and third on TV Guide's Top 25 Cult TV Shows of All Time.
Unfortunately, the filmmakers visiting Scunthorpe wasted a wonderful opportunity to shed light onto a world we don't often see on television and examine some of the reasons behind this. Instead they choose to reinforce some highly damaging opinions held about Britain's poor and unemployed people.
