at home this week with the cozy bbc breakfast show. ladybirds, isle wight regatta, z-list celebs and an endless 20 minute loop of chatty people wearing coloured cardigans presenting irrelevent local issues. real news seems to interrupt the mindless issues every half hour or so. in fact, it's no different to the puerile gmtv on itv. where's all those foreign correspondents? anyone else noticed?

It's August... news silly season. Tends to be like it every year.

I watch BBC Breakfast most mornings and it covers enough of the basics for my early morning brain. If I want more serious news in greater detail then I would change to the BBC news channel, or one of the other 24 hour news channels.

It cycles around for people getting up and joining at different times. Which makes sense, so not lots of time to go into great detail really, when most people will only watch for about 30 mins tops.

I can't stand GMTV, so there must be a difference.

I've never noticed any cardigans either, you sure you're watching the same thing as me?

forgive me jenny but doesn't the bbc world news carry the same bbc breakfast programme too? now its being interrupted every 10 mins by ads for the strictly dancing show.

i like al jazeera too, blip. its a great source of information on middle eastern issues and rageh (the scud stud) omar is excellent, a sad loss for the bbc. as an alternative view to the republican sponsored fox news it is without peer. hopeless for floods in the fens though.
