As for the old Fremantle television ident, that genuinely does look as though someone's 'spunked' over it.

This is probably extremely old news, but you can, of course, catch up with the complete history of television idents here.

Have you heard about the BBC news helicopter? 2m a year, apparently, to have it on standby, which has been more than repaid in recent months with such dramatic coverage as the plume of smoke from that petrol depot in Hertfordshire, from about 4 miles away, aerial shots of David Cameron cycling to work, overhead shots of crowds at pop concerts in Hyde Park, and the unforgettable pictures of planes not taking off from Heathrow airport on the day after MI5 arrested some Pakistanis for buying suspicious amounts of fertilizer.

They should crash it into the sea. It would pay for itself then.

While I always found the Newsnight helicopter a bit silly, given that every two-bit news channel in America has one, why can't the largest broadcast news organisation in the world?

As long as it carries a sheepdog and an emergency shepherd is on stand by at all times.

Of course. It's a small price to pay for the gift of a functioning body that works properly.

shame it wasn't covering Richard Hammond's jet car speed record attempt.

Surely they've got lots of close-up footage of that. Or have I missed the point?

I don't follow the logic there, GY. Why on earth would the BBC want to follow the path of two-bit US news channels?

I'm talking about budgets. If it's not too expensive for a two bit news channel, I'm sure a corporation with annual revenues of over 2bn can cope.

Yeah, but 1bn of that goes direct to Jonathon Ross. And in any case, the difference, GY, is that this is funded out of what is effectively a tax, not advertisers' or subscribers' money. You have no choice in the UK; you want to own a telly, you have to pay the BBC 130 a year. Even if you can prove you never watch the BBC, or listen to their (admittedly incomparable) radio output like the Chris Moyles breakfast show or the Archers.
