BBC Vows No More All-Male Line-Ups On Panel Shows


Jo Brand

The BBC has vowed to feature women on all of its panel shows from now on, meaning that hit shows such as QI, Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You will no longer be able to get away with having all-male line-ups, as is often seen.

Comedy Shows Such As Dara O'Briain's 'Mock The Week' Have Often Featured All-Male Panels.

"We're not going to have panel shows on any more with no women on them," the BBC's Director of Television Danny Cohen told The Observer. "You can't do that. It's not acceptable." Cohen also spoke of how efforts are being made to represent older women throughout the BBC's programming output.

BBC Stands Firm Over Jo Brand's Prince Harry Cocaine Joke [Video]


Jo Brand Prince Harry

The BBC has stood by its satirical quiz show Have I Got News For You after guest presenter Jo Brand read a joke about Prince Harry snorting cocaine. The comedian made the remark during Friday's edition (October 25, 2013) of the show - featuring team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton - in a discussion about Prince George's godparents.

Reading from the autocue, Brand said: "George's godparents include Hugh van Cutsem... I presume that's a nickname as in Hugh van cuts 'em and Harry then snorts 'em."

The joke prompted Hislop to ask, "Have we lost the lawyers?"

Sweet Success For BBC Two As Great Comic Relief Bake-Off Draws 3.8 Million

The highlight of last night’s TV viewing in the UK was undoubtedly BBC2’s special edition of The Great British Bake-Off, for Comic Relief. Rather than the usual array of seasoned bakers, displaying a range of cakes, from sub-standard to outstanding, The Great Comic Relief Bake-Off had a group of comedians, all displaying an array of cakes from sub-sub-standard (Seriously. Paul Hollywood was channelling ‘happy thoughts’ at one point) to above average cakes.

The difference, this time, was that they were doing it for the good of Comic Relief and promoting a series of nationwide bake sales, in aid of the huge charity event, which helps various charitable causes across the globe. According to The Guardian, 3.8 million people tuned in to watch the show, which starred contestants Jo Brand, Stephen K Amos, Lorna Watson and Ingrid Oliver as well as the usual judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry and host Mel Giedroyc. They blew Channel 4’s competition out of the water (natural history show Wild Things), which managed 1.07 million viewers.

Meanwhile on BBC1, the sitcom Miranda fell to its lowest audience of the new series so far, with an average of 6.4 million viewers, though it could well have fallen victim to its neighbouring channel, rather than the drop in figures indicating a decline in the show’s popularity. Last night’s bakers had to tackle such patisserie delicacies as a custard slice, a tray of shortbread and a cake with a portrait iced onto it. Jo Brand’s re-imagination of Desmond Tutu’s face was… well, it was quite something.

Horrid Henry: The Movie Review


Bad
Based on the books and animated TV series, this far-too-childish 3D comedy is pretty painful to watch for audiences of any age, as the cast and crew overplay every gag. Which means that nothing is funny.

Henry (Stevenson) is a precocious pre-teen with an aversion to homework. His parents (Horne and Hayes) try to spur him on, but he continues to annoy his teacher Miss Battleaxe (Huston) and headmistress Miss Oddbod (Front), while waging war on nemesis Margaret (Stitt). When a local private-school headmaster (Grant) plots to steal the students, Henry realises that saving his school is his only option. Now working with Margaret, his high-achieving little brother Peter (Marron) and the super-nice Miss Lovely (Nagra), they put a plan in motion.

Horrid Henry: The Movie Trailer


Henry's never meant to be horrid, but that's just what all the adults (and some children) consider him. If there are worms in someone's sandwich or if there's itching powder in your bed, you can bet Henry's the one who's done it.
