What did you think of The One Show? Guest: Katherine Jenkins

The One Show Team | 11:01 UK time, Thursday, 3 September 2009

Adrian and Christine were joined by singer Katherine Jenkins.

Katherine is currently a 'Forces Sweetheart'. To see Christine's interview with the original 'Sweetheart' Dame Vera Lynn follow this link.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the start of World War II, The One Show wants to reunite lost friends who met during the war years but have lost track of one another. Click here for photos and more information.

Clare Balding told us of her personal battle with cancer and visited a Maggie's Centre.

Arthur Smith looked at cinema and theatre etiquette. Instead of crunchy boiled sweets and noisy popcorn, what sort of soft foods should we be munching? Send in your suggestions here.

Dan Snow visited the remains of a Roman fort, hidden in the mountains of Snowdonia.

And Ellie Harrison met Barnabas the horse. He's scared of his own shadow y'know.

    Re theatre & cinema ettiquete: Your King's College "expert" mentioned the audience being restive and throwing fruit at the Globe if the cast was late coming out behind the curtain. Err, I'm sure they would have - if there had been a curtain!!!!! Which there wasn't.

    Mobiles and cameras are a distraction though (and filming actually breaches copyright, so not only are the people doing this, annoying, they are in fact breaking the law....:-)

    One of our favourite principles at the Globe (where I'm a steward) is that in Shakespeare's time you went to "Hear a play" rather than possibly see it - so food munchers. chatterers, and mobile phone users, leave the 21st century behind for a little while and enjoy the sound of the plays and the stories (and hope not too many planes go over!! *grin*)

    Your piece on cancer gives a resolutely positive - some might say jolly - view of cancer treatment today. It fails to mention that some patients, for example those with cancer of the pancreas, are still given a 'death sentence' at diagnosis. This is partly because this type of cancer is acknowledged to be difficult to diagnose, but also (or perhaps because) it is a 'cinderella' cancer, which receives little funding - and yet the incidence of pancreatic cancer has risen dramatically over the past decade, and it is the fourth biggest cancer killer in the United States.

    Every 5 years I regularly had breast screening for cancer but this is stopped when women reach about 65. When I reached 70 although I had no reason to be concerned, some intuition told me to ask for further screening and I was diagnosed with an early breast cancer. I had a mastectomy and after 6 years I have hopefully been cleared. Please tell all viewers over 65 that they can still have screening if they ask! Please thank Katherine Jenkin's mother for her years of wonderful service as a radiographer. I was eternally grateful to the eyes that were used to good effect in my case.

    Can someone please tell Adrian Chiles that the word is brought, not "bought". For example; you cannot bing someone something. Not unless you're using the new Microsoft search engine anyway. It's not a regional variation in pronunciation, it's just utterly incorrect and shouldn't be put across as normal on TV. If you're being paid as a television presenter you ought - not rought, Adrian - to be able to put yourself across to a mass audience with some eloquence. I was sat watching tonight's show and eating my tea at the same time, and I nearly choked when Mr. Childes made this error. It's incalculably irritating to hear people in the media demonstrate their ignorance over this common word. By the way, I'm in my twenties and not some old fart with nothing else to complain about.

    Oh yeah nearly forgot, the article on the Roman fort was very interesting.

    Great fun tonight. Adrian moving effortlessly into Alan Partridge mode, embarrasing his guests with his cringeworthy sense of humour-Chris looks disapproving and like the rest of us is thinking " I couldnt fancy this man could I? " Claire B has become a very good presenter speaking to rather than at the viewer, and it is a hoot when her mouth outruns her brain as in the "jockeys teeth" incident-I am pleased that she has overcome her medical problem-I gave up on the cinema and theatre years ago because of the background noises, particularly people who could not resist telling the story a few minutes before the actors. Musical theatre is OK now, people can chat if they like and we all have a good sing song, but then this is Cardiff, any group of more than two people is considered to be a choir!!

    Re cinema item: eating anything at a cinema should be forbidden. You go to watch a film, not to sit eating food.

    cancer was covered in a positive way (whitch is good) but men get cancer also. Not once was this mentioned, or is it just a female domain.

    Your contribution about cancer was despite improved treatments much too positive and you forgot that the UK scores pretty poorly compared to other European countries especially as far as breast cancer is concerned. This is mainly due to the NHS screening (only every third year), whilst in Germany f.ex.you get screened every year and will be examined by a specialist (gynaecologist).Try to get to a gynaecologist in this country, virtually impossible.
    As far as women`s health is concerned we are in a third world country here and as far as preventive medicine is concerned a `look over the fence` into other countries as well as a more modest approach is highly recommended.

    Thought Katherine Jenkins looked a little bit 'lost' tonight, as sometimes happens, I notice. A & C are too cosy at times and interact with each other, kind of ignoring the poor guest.

    Please can somebody tell Dr Sarah Jarvis that wearing micro dresses and skirts at her age make her look rediculous and desperate. I'm sorry but this attire is not for anyone over 30 and she must be nearer 50 than 30

    This is'nt 'Parkinson', guests ar'nt encouraged to make conversation. Many have tried to expand on a subject only to be interupted verbally or by use of body language. This is due to the very tight schedule which has to fit the time limits. Perhaps if the show was a regular one hour long, or fewer reports, we might get guests to open up. Katherine Jenkins is an intelligent girl, and experienced with the media, but like most special guests, they're there to promote their latest 'product'. Jabbajockey

    Hallo Christine and Adrian
    We love and watch your show each evening but I must say that I was seriously disappointed when Kathryn Jenkins was your guest and she sang "We'll meet again" together with Vera Lynn. You only played a very small part of it and it was Sooo lovely that I now request that you play it all through please. Not only because we loved it but because we also sang it at our mother's funeral, and we really did not do it very well! It was Mum's favourite song.
    Many thanks
    Kind regards
    Mrs. Winifred Scott wandfscott@aol.com
