! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The BBC is a pioneer of High Definition (HD) TV in the UK, broadcasting HD content on satellite, cable, freeview and the internet.  So why do I have to watch BBC Breakfast in low definition while the BBC HD channel is showing previews of what’s on the channel tonight?

And while I’m on the subject of HD TV, why does Sky One show Simpsons and Futurama in 16:9 widescreen on the low def Sky One channel but 4:3 on Sky One HD?

    The original Futurama (and certainly the early Simpsons) episodes are actually 4:3, so Sky are stretching it to fit on SD and letting you have it in it’s original ‘proper’ format on HD.

    …because adverts for other tv shows are better than the vapid steaming dog egg omlette that is breakfast TV?
