Every other BBC programme these days seems to have break points for
adverts, with the usual repetition of the programme title and the
story so far, i.e. since the last break point five minutes previously.
My experience with whittling the adverts out of recorded ITV
programmes suggests that without all the extra guff, the actual
running time of relevant material could be 25-30% shorter. Presumably
this is done with overseas sales in mind, but whatever happened to the
idea that BBC programmes were made with BBC licence payers' money for
BBC audiences? Shouldn't our interests come first?


IMO yes. If you cut out the useless resume of what happened in the
previous
episode what will happen in the next episode you could reduce the time by
even
more. why is some of the better repeated material on channels like W and
Dave


I'm not seeing any "good" repeated material on Dave (W I cannot receive)

Mark Kermode apparently said if you clap your hands every time a shot changes
viewpoint making a noise like enthusiastic applause you are watching something
modern as taught in media courses, otherwise you are watching a quality old
film. The "NEW" Coast series has a clap rate of 1 per 5 seconds. Blade runner
2049 has a very, very low clap rate like the original Blade Runner, but what do
they know? :-)


You should also clap every time there's a gratuitous change in framing
(i.e. not prompted by action), twice if it zooms, and continuously
about twice per second if the shot is handheld

That'll sort out your media wankovision from your Merchant/Ivorys.

Please tell the director now working on University Challenge who seems
to synchronise changes of shots to her heartbeat. I've taken to
listening rather than watching - which is at least a good excuse when it
comes to the picture questions

Agreed.

In the "new" Coast the clap rate is nearer to 1 per 3sec than 1
per 5 sec in some episodes without clapping every time there's a
gratuitous change in framing (i.e. not prompted by action),
twice if it zooms, and continuously about twice per second if
the shot is handheld


I finf watching films (on DVD, Netflix or wherever) is so much
more peaceful than the visual restlessness of tv.


The BBC is terrible for introducing a heavy annoying drum beat in most of
it's productions, especially documentaries.
