Pop Idol, Survivor, Big Brother, Popstars, Fame Academy, Temptation

What was you point again Rudy... :)

Besides, wasn't early days of television -- from Alexander Palace --
nothing more than men in dinner jackets reading news like they were *on
the radio*. Once people realised that TV wasn't 'radio with pictures',
we actually started to see the new medium used properly; hopefully
certain people will realise, sooner rather than later, that the
Internet *isn't* TV on computers, and that most people really don't
want Flash websites, streaming video to rival PAL, blah, blah, blah.

God help us if we all start getting emails that resemble CNN
broadcasts, complete with CGI presenters and 'sting' music-backed
