Thirteen years on, are the wounds anywhere near healing? Paul Howlett

Doomwatch: revisiting a UK 'sci-fact' classic

Ground-breaking, intelligent, prescient 1970s drama Doomwatch, now out on DVD, is a British television classic...

Playing on the public's fear that 'this could actually happen', Doomwatch had a veneer of credibility unusual in the escapist television drama landscape of the late 60s/early 70s. This spring sees the most comprehensive haul of Doomwatch episodes released on DVD for the first time. The nickname for the "Department for the Observation and Measurement of Scientific Work", the series first appeared on BBC1 on Monday 9th February 1970 at 9.40pm. It followed half an hour of comedy from Kenneth Williams, which must have surely heightened its dramatic impact.

The series would run in tandem with the early Jon Pertwee era of Doctor Who; the first episode made its debut two days after part two of Doctor Who And The Silurians. The two shows undoubtedly shared a synergy of ideas - not to mention cast and crew. »

How Europe’s Broadcasters Reworked Schedules to React to Brussels Attacks

23 March 2016 2:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — European broadcasters have been scrambling to keep up with events in Brussels over the past two days. Variety looks at how they adapted to the fast-moving events, reworking schedules to make room for extended newscasts and special programming.

In the U.K. on Tuesday morning, public broadcaster BBC aired a three-hour-long special news report on the attacks on its flagship channel, BBC One, starting at 9.15 a.m. Both the BBC and its main free-tv commercial rival ITV extended the running time of their main newscasts at 10 o’clock that evening to incorporate coverage from Brussels, and the shows were anchored from the city. Pay TV service Sky aired a special show on the attacks on its Sky News channel Tuesday evening.

The BBC’s Wednesday edition of investigative news show “Panorama,” titled “Inside Europe’s Terror Attacks,” was devoted to the Isis terrorism network in Europe; the show has been months in the making. »

SirIsaac asks:

Do marriage vows mean anything?

Vows matter to those who believe in them. I think we all accept that to take an oath in a court of law binds us absolutely to tell the truth. And indeed there is a punishment if we are found not to be doing so. Marriage vows are between two people, »
