Don't you long for the days of yore when continuity announcers did just

it was a mortal sin to talk over either the beginning or the end of a
programme. Now such audio and visual vandalism seems to be de rigueur,
justified as aiding the hard of thinking, unable to master the info
button on their RC.

I agree, though don't look back too much with rose coloured specs. ISTR
during the 1970s the closing credits to many sit-coms and dramas would often
have Mr Continuity saying; "Joe Bloggs is appearing in 'xyz' at the 'abc'
theatre". I suspect that was a requirement of Equity ?

Nowadays it's "Joe Bloggs is appearing on ITV2 on I'm A Celebrity Live!"
