What did you think of The One Show? Guest: Paul Merton

Post categories:

The One Show Team | 15:07 UK time, Wednesday, 13 January 2010

Adrian and Christine were joined by Paul Merton for a special one hour One Show snow show!

Christine, Paul Merton and AdrianIn the cold weather, we're all told to dress in layers to keep warm. So, we asked to see how many layers you can dress up in - and showed our favourite pics at the end of the programme.

Snow special! Matt Allwright in the East Midlands reported about the snow in England, while Wyre Davies was in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, Lorna Gordon was in Blair Atholl, Scotland and Chris Buckler in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

One Show weather expert Carol Kirkwood gave us the latest forecast for all regions of the UK.

In Sheffield, Anita Rani met emergency service workers who have been victims of unprovoked attacks in the line of duty.

It's Sin Week. Michael Mosley looked at greed.

Adam Shaw made sense of the cost to the UK of the big freeze.

In Welford Park, near Newbury, Miranda Krestovnikoff showed us snowdrops.

Joe Inglis told us what we should be doing for our pets and wildlife during the freezing weather.

Terry Herbert dug up £3.3million pounds worth of treasure in July last year. Paddy O'Connell looked at the campaign to keep the treasure where it was found, in the Midlands.

At Tintern Abbey in Monmouthshire, Wales, Gyles Brandreth explored how the ruins and the landscape inspired artist Turner's early paintings.

Gyles also offered up some top tips on staying safe while driving on slippery roads.

And finally, Adrian and Christine went out and about in the white stuff!

What did you think of tonight's One Show? Add a comment.

    A lot of of the accidents could be avoided with winter tyres. Believe me they make a great deal of difference. Illegal to drive in Scandinavia in winter without them. If you are involved in an accident without them you may be prosecuted.

    Hi I do like "the one show" and always enjoy the various guests. Christine is lovely and always nicely dressed but what has gone wrong with Adrian. He is looking very untidy and unkempt and really is spoiling the show for me. He looks as though he needs a make over, maybe you can arrange this for him.

    The BBC repeatedly forecast at the weekend heavy snow for Monday. It never materialised and it was icy and very cold etc., So Monday having got it wrong they forecast Monday's weather for Tuesday. Wrong again, it snowed and snowed in places. By Tuesday they had got it so consistently wrong they were cautious.

    You have been showing louts throwing items at firemen and their engines + mentioning ambulances being ambushed. I notice its always the "evil louts" that get the help, being able to work with the firemen etc. Why are the young men who behave themselves and don't do that sort of thing always left out? It speaks of getting your teenagers or younger kids to misbehave and then they get lots of help and assistance. Its always the minotity being helped and the majority ignored.
    Lets show the young men/ladies who feel these louts need to be put out on the streets and made to work get some recognition for a change.

    I have to agree with a lot of others that I do not like the 'starting a beard' look, but mainly wanted to write and say that the earthquake has put into perspective what we are going through here in the UK. OK so many of us are unable to get out, we are having to help out our less able neighbours, and it is cold, but that is nothing compared to having lost loved ones, your house and all you own. I know that charities will be taking collections for the disaster (they normaly do) and if every adult in this country gives just £1, then just think at the amount of aid we can send out there. Money will never replace what they have lost, but in the short term they need food clothing and shelter and these all cost money. what would you need to sacrifice to give these people just £1? or £5? It could mean so much to them!

    It is encouraging to see that the minions on the production team are obeying their orders and blogging fervently about Adrian's beard. The idea being that it will distract our attention from just how awful is TOS.

    I hope few are falling for the Producer's cunning plan. Even Baldric could have done better. I just mentioned Baldric to remind myself that there is a lot better on the BBC than the terrible TOS.

    Nice to see the weather forecast for Wales Northern Ireland Scotland and the M4 corridor – what about the rest of us?

    Is this the best our creative types in the BBC can come up with, presenters playing (well, attempting to) in the snow? Junk!

    That is an admirable summing up of TOS. Many would agree with you. But not the producer. She thinks the show is wonderful and would dearly love to know what you think of Adrian's beard. You will have noticed that they have now built three editions around Adrian's beard. It takes a production staff of 60 you achieve this level of broadcasting. It make one weep.

    Hi, I enjoyed the programme, and would love to know if there is really someone out there who sells boots for dogs. My little dog's pads have gone really rough with this snow. I always wipe his feet with the towel to get the snow off, but it seems to stick to his feet. He hates me wiping them, so I wondered if I could get him some boots. Then low and behold your programme came on and showed the boots. Where can I get some from and do you know how much they are please. I would love to get him some. I know they look funny and I laughed at your show, but they would come in handy, and he would love them. Thank you from a fan.

    The Daily Mail keep picking up on the slightset story involving CB. Earlier this week its about stroking AC's beard, now today it's about the two of them playing in the snow (Last nights show). Both items based on pieces from the show. One has to wonder if it is to order, as these pieces are not stories in themselves and are certainly not news.

    If not from within, do remember CB, the press will happily build anyone up and then if one slips up, will delight in sticking the boot in.

    I have the misfortune to need subtitles in order to follow a spoken program. Subtitles during The One Show, at least that of yesterday, were consistently a third of the way up the screen. Turner pictures were at least partially covered. What a pity. I also watched the following program, Traffic Cops and care was obviously taken to cater for me and others who have to use subtitle. They were inserted in appropriate locations on the screen and varied throughout the program. Care was obviously taken in production of that program. Why not in The One Show?

    Perhaps if the programme is recorded it allows more time to set up the subtitles. I'm only guessing, but with the One Show being live it may be more difficult.
