Comments for en-gb 30 Thu 03 Sep 2015 02:54:18 GMT+1 A feed of user comments from the page found at tyroneshoelaces Adrian, your are about to enter a new period with TOS, where criticism or praise is gone and no more complaints about your modest salary. Christine, no more asking where you got your pelmet or the 5 1/2 inch heels, or indeed who got them for you. A woman now free to become the first TV presenter to rule the world as well as the channel. Happy days to one and all. Tue 23 Mar 2010 14:40:04 GMT+1 Len West R.I.P. .. TOS BLOG Tue 23 Mar 2010 12:54:53 GMT+1 Rinty #3: sxg123,An excellent valedictory. I agree with every word. Tue 23 Mar 2010 12:53:37 GMT+1 Len West (whilst watching Breakfast on BBC1) I have just been invited by my LOCAL weather forecaster to visit his blog on the BBC web site.... As he is part of a regional team, who in turn are part of a much larger national team, each with their own blog, it begs the question of how come the beeb needs to close the One Show Blog?Come clean TOS. The closure has nothing to do with finance - methinks you've been taken to task too many times by the paying public (viewers / licence payers) and rather than take on board the comments you've applied good old 1930's style censorship and instead of applying the medication you've decided to amputate the limb!shame...

Love The One Show and look forward to the show, Have to record it if away. I missed Christine shaving off the stubble, darn it, was hoping to see a review this evening. Please show it tomorrow, I`ll be watching. Thankyou. Mon 22 Mar 2010 21:18:26 GMT+1 sky_viewer Re 17: Wonders of the Solar System? No, it's been reasonable, though it does tend to drag. I was thinking specifically of Horizon's inexorable decline in recent times, e.g., the one a few weeks ago on dark flow has been the subject of considerable criticism. It could almost have been covered just as well in 5 mins on The One Show. Mon 22 Mar 2010 21:07:48 GMT+1 flunklumpard 16 sky viewerIs that the 'effort' on the solar system? Mon 22 Mar 2010 20:32:24 GMT+1 sky_viewer Good stuff tonight on BBC1 (& better tahan some tiresome science efforts on BBC2 recently) - a quite good piece on relativity with Marty followed by some quantum mechanics on BGTT. Mon 22 Mar 2010 20:27:54 GMT+1 Richard Lawrence The piece on time travel was interesting, but I think BBC1 has already succeeded at time travel, because BBC1 programs seem to start earlier than BBC2 and other channel's programs. Mon 22 Mar 2010 20:05:16 GMT+1 bastek100 lol Mon 22 Mar 2010 20:04:11 GMT+1 flunklumpard 11 sxg123Well spotted!The blog is doing what the programme makers want - it's dying. What a shame.Still, let's imagine what will happen to the 'new' TOS. AC may be replaced on Friday's with some DJ...Can it sustain interest for a whole hour. Not in it's present format. CB will have her own part of the show, devoted entirely to herself and her journey to find where her head has actually gone. This piece may be titled "Let it be me" Mon 22 Mar 2010 20:02:09 GMT+1 bastek100 I think "The One Show" should use the "Why Dont You" theme tune Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:48:37 GMT+1 sxg123 #8 bastek100Are you a reincarnation of bwoods30? You sound just like him/her. Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:48:15 GMT+1 flunklumpard #6 catalanI'm sure the Queen has a sense of humour, unlike you. She has lived, albiet through accident of birth, in the lap of luxury for her entire life at my expense. As for being hard working - send her down a mine for a month or two, maybe then I'll agree with you. Only thing the royals deserve is being shut down. Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:47:20 GMT+1 flunklumpard A pleasant evening on TOS. No Sports Relief, no promotion of the now ubiquitous CB (don't you just wish her boyfriend was a nameless banker and the DM didn't exist), Adrian cleaned up and looking quite smart, Miranda, great as always and most importantly, an entertaining guest. Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:42:46 GMT+1 bastek100 the royal family are a waste of space Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:42:32 GMT+1 bastek100 @sxg123you would be better talking to a brick wall Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:40:38 GMT+1 Catalan I was appalled by the mocking attitude of the presenters towards the Queen who is always dignified, hard-working and caring of her subjects even though she is well past everyone else's retiring age. She does not deserve this. Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:37:47 GMT+1 bastek100 lol Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:37:18 GMT+1 tyroneshoelaces 3 sxg123Great post. I hope someone will take note of your points, particularly that of self promotion. The presenters need to take some tips from old Parky - let the guests speak!Will miss having a rap with you as your contributions were enlightening and on many occasions great fun.That apart, Rory Bremner was as usual, a good guest.Adios Mon 22 Mar 2010 19:34:22 GMT+1 sxg123 The start of the final 3 days of the TOS blog. Good guest in the form of Rory Bremner and so far no mention of SR.Given that TOS viewers are to be denied an opportunity to comment on the programme as part of this blog from Thursday, I thought I would post my parting comments for what they’re worth.The TOS concept is a good one – an early-evening, light entertainment, magazine-style programme with topical news items, consumer information and celebrity guests. During the time that I have watched the programme (since its inception), there have been some interesting and informative items and some very entertaining guests.Unfortunately, these moments of brilliance have been outnumbered by issues that have consistently dogged the programme:* Generally poor presentation – perhaps very variable presentation is a fairer description. The presenters may well be very capable in their own fields, and I have nothing against them as individuals, but TOS demands a special style of presentation that engages with the guests, links the disparate items with informed comment, and adds value based on life experience.* Unbalanced and error-prone reporting of more serious items.* Guests that all too often don’t give of their best in the TOS environment, largely because they are ill-briefed and faced with mind-numbingly ridiculous questions. Frequently, their contributions are limited to only a few minutes out of a 30-ish minute programme.* Rude treatment of guests that don’t gel with the presenters.* Recycled old news items that have been covered elsewhere on the BBC, anything up to a month earlier.* Dumbed down reporting that states the blindingly obvious as if it were based on insightful analysis. Examples: don’t post gold to the gold recycling companies; cook chicken properly; don’t send money to someone you don’t know etc.* Cringe worthy attempts at comedic presentation. This is definitely not a TOS strength and is best left to the experts such as Harry Hill.* Shameless and interminable self-promotion in the name of Sport Relief. This is the item that has probably exercised TOS bloggers most, all to no avail. * Unwillingness of the blog moderators to tolerate more robust comment, and slowness in moderating initial posts from new bloggers.* Virtually no interaction with the production team via the blog.So, I hope the new producer and production team (if there are indeed new ones) will go some way to addressing at least some of these issues though I’m not hopeful.Many thanks for the company of the other bloggers but it is now time so say goodbye, au revoir, auf wiedersehen, adios, arrivederci, vaarwel, farvel.Bye.
