Quote from: Yussef Dent on November 04, 2020, 02:38:32 PMhttps://www.theguardian.com/sport/2008/apr/06/sportfeatures.televisionHere's an article about it from 2008 which mentions the Vine incident and Binns swearing at that kid. Under The Moon was great, I think at the time it was on when C4 had the NBA rights, their highlights show used to sometimes be folded into it so that's how it first caught my attention. I think when live games were on and would obviously take up a huge chunk of it but they'd just carry on going after it had finished.
Quote from: boki on November 04, 2020, 11:53:23 AMWasn't it an England flag bra?I used to watch Under The Moon semi-regularly. Gutted I missed the one where Binns was getting merked by some kid in a kickaround and he ended up shouting, "Give me the ball, you fucking cunt", though.

Quote from: Jockice on November 05, 2020, 10:00:31 AMIf we're talking morning TV here's one that nobody else remembers Because they were all at work. Except me who was laid up at home for months even after getting out of hospital following the complete stranger falling on top of me incident. So The Time The Place with John Stapleton become one of my staples.It was one of those audience participation shows with a different topic each day. One morning it was whether long distance romances can work. Remember it was pre-internet days so they were a lot more difficult then. The main interviewee was a woman who had fallen in love with a bloke in America after striking up a correspondence (he wasn't on death row or anything though) and was planning to go over and marry him.In what was obviously meant to be the grand finale Stapleton phoned him up. I've always thought these things were set up beforehand but in this case it obviously wasn't as the bloke reacted as most people would if being woken up by a phone call in the early hours (lest we forget, the US is several hours behind) from a stranger claiming to be from a TV show in another continent asking about your personal life. He didn't swear but it's fair to say he wasn't too happy.The final shot on the show as it went to the credits was the woman sitting there with a look of total shock on her face. She certainly wasn't expecting that. I wonder if the relationship continued after that. It was never mentioned on the show again.
Quote from: grainger on November 05, 2020, 07:44:50 AMI've mentioned it before, but I have another Madely-related one. It's still lost in the mists of time, and I still wonder if I imagined it.The first time I saw This Morning was a most atypical episode, in which they were having a song competition to determine (IIRC) a new theme tune. Members of the public had been encouraged to send in candidates for the new theme, and the entire episode was given over to the song contest. The songwriters performed their songs (some of them strumming guitars or miming with DX7s on the Albert Dock), and the show's regular experts gave their views on the quality of each entry. As you might expect, the songs were pure cringe, lyrics consisting of lists of things in the programme.Anyway, they decided on a winner pretty unanimously (I think I remember the chorus, and wish I didn't) and then the song was never heard again (except in my head).
Quote from: Glebe on November 05, 2020, 01:27:02 AMI actually remember that when it went out! He also had a pop at Clive James, and Hale and Pace I think.RE: Under the Moon, I think Eddie Large was on it once (as mentioned before on the forum), he was also (as also discussed previously) on Fantasy Football League... Baddiel makes a pretty mean-spirited joke about his weight! I'm not much of a footie fan but me mates used to watch these things, so...
Quote from: Menu on November 05, 2020, 11:18:06 PMI used to love they way they'd introduce the guests, and any other format feature, by singing the words again and again to the tune of Back Home. It's so brilliantly stupid.
Quote from: Menu on November 05, 2020, 11:07:56 PMI'm surprised nobody's one through Madeley's back catalogue to find stuff like this. I bet its brimming with comedic incidents of various sizes. He's a goldmine for shit like this. Remember that 3 part travelogue thing they had on YouTube a while ago of Madeley going round some area having Partridge moments and pieces to camera. I bet there's tonnes of stuff like that! SOMEBODY! Go and do that!

Quote from: Ludicrous Display on November 06, 2020, 01:43:49 PMI was browsing the radio stations last week and he was on Talkradio in the mid morning slot, Richard Madeley's mid morning matters. I shit you not he said, "so ebola's more of a shotgun blast and covid's more rapid machine gun fire" when chatting with a scientist. Then he recounted a tale about Michael Winner eating a dodgy oyster which left him half paralysed to Katherine Ryan of all people who was on plugging something food related. I believe he was on all week and the shows are archived on YouTube, someone, somewhere, please, do the right thing.

Quote from: Menu on November 08, 2020, 02:59:57 AMOh man, that's perfect. Actually I've just remembered him once doing one of those 20 questions things they have in Sunday supplements where the celeb answers some random quickfire questions. When Madeley was asked which human being he most despises, he said 'Fidel Castro'. Just such a weirdly Partridgean choice, implying a comical backstory of some sort as to how his hatred for Castro started and developed. Even if you were right-wing (which I've never thought Richard was particularly, he doesn't seem political at all), there would be a number of people on the list before you got to the President of Cuba.
Quote from: grainger on November 08, 2020, 07:25:20 AMI've just remembered quite a funny Judy moment. Back when Madonna's book Sex came out, they had a debate about it. They had someone from (I think) the publishing company on to defend the book (Madonna certainly didn't appear). The debate ended with Judy storming off, saying "Well I think it's a disgrace" or similar. But it wasn't really classic-Richard levels of funny.
Quote from: petrilTanaka on November 08, 2020, 03:40:01 PMI think he's a bit right wing but not in a state where he's capable of being aware of it. just a slow drift, still assured he's not somehow without actually thinking
Quote from: Menu on November 09, 2020, 12:21:35 AMAnd I'm sure he's said progressive things at some point(although I can't remember any specific examples). I just bet there's an amusing back story to his hate of Castro. God, I'd love to live with him or something.
QuoteRichard made some remark about Fidel Castro which prompted Judy to say (words to the effect of) that's not fair, he's on his deathbed to which Madeley replied "like a lot of people he murdered Judy" in a hugely patronising and dismissive way. Judy looked as close as I have ever seen her to walking off set/hitting him.
Quote from: Menu on November 09, 2020, 12:18:53 AMShe stormed off???
Quote from: dissolute ocelot on November 09, 2020, 10:07:04 AMIt's pretty clear Madeley is very anti-left wing. Was there ever a strike by workers on This Morning?
Quote from: jobotic on November 09, 2020, 02:16:42 PMWhat does Judy care about Madonna's Sex book?
