Quote from: Dineen on February 05, 2022, 12:42:56 AMDoes anyone have Torque TV (BE pilot)? I have it on 'SVCD' but it doesn't work on my Blu-ray player. I remember it having a thing on spiders.

Quote from: Retinend on February 26, 2022, 11:48:29 PMBonus musing: who fucking cares if Michael Howard threatened to overrule one of his MPs? Why is that clip so famous? Just because it's a major politician getting flustered and the other guy acting totally aloof, when it was previously expected for news broadcasters to act with deference towards such men?
Quote from: Petey Pate on February 28, 2022, 03:17:58 PMI think it's because Howard is so clearly avoiding answering a simple yes or no question - but you're right that it's not that remarkable in the context of BBC news journalism. You could even argue that it helped demonstrate to politicians that you could avoid answering a journalist's questions and face no real consequences.
Quote from: Menu on March 06, 2022, 12:18:21 AMI think Paxman said later that another reason why he kept repeating the question was because the producer was in his ear saying that the VT for the next bit was broken or something, and he didn't have any more questions prepared.
Quote from: Virgo76 on March 06, 2022, 08:45:29 PMThat bit is a myth.In his memoirs, Paxman says Howard could have defused it by saying "it was a long time ago now. I'll take another look at the papers and get back to you" or something.
