Well, its been a hectic last few weeks for me, and now its getting hot in the UK again! That means uncomftable moments, needs of fans and the news complaining about a drought! (Especially and ironoclly the BBC, who are doing a season of programs about "climite change").
I have heard on the media news areas that Five is planning two new channels (Five US and Five Life), both of them seem to miss their target by a mile, as basically it has been covered ten times over and Five doesn't do it propley.Meanwhile, ITV is planing to merge two regions, Merdian west and Central South to form... wait for it... ITV Thames Valley. One problem, Central south also covers Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, both regions are completly unconnected to the River Thames.
Whats being done about that? Well while Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire & Swindon will become part of the new region. Gloucestershire will become part of ITV West, and Herefordshire will become part of ITV Central west. That means news stories relating to both regions could be casted aside due to location, as was the case with the old BBC South East region before it was split into three. You can find out more about that at:http://www.tvradiobits.co.uk/southeast/
And besides, what's the point! ITV has been ruined anyway and local programming has been completly reduced. It's not like a new region will do anything. In any case, 40 job cuts will occur with this merge and not for good reason. Already the unions are up in arms.
Anyway, bringing us back to the DF network, now with most of the catchup done, i will resume my fanfic. Dreamer's sims will be continued as soon as possible (possibly next weekend), MangaF has been updated twice with all CCT issues now avalibe as well as YGO- A simple game.
The DF forum now has a RPG section if you want to try your hand as well as contests. I am also running a vote on a possible MangaF panel, please get involved if you can. More to the point, i need an active community!
Now, there is no need for a opt-out on DevientArt or CCR, mainly because i don't have anything specifc i need to say this time round, so its now time for your moment of Ace!"NO NO NO NO NO...That is not what you do ITV! Geez... does anyone in ITV have a brain or a heart when it comes to running to supposably "indepdent broadcasting guild"
