If you don’t know, the SDN stands for the Scottish Digital Network. When you hear the people, who are supposed to know, explain the concept it is still hard to understand.

At the conference I was at yesterday, with the very sexed up Greg Dyke,… Continue

While talking about Madonna & Guy Ritchie’s divorce settlement on last night’s six o’clock news, BBC entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba stated that the £50m financial settlement was more important than reaching agreement on their children.

The lead item on Radio 4 news this evening was about Lesley Douglas resigning from her position as controller of Radio 2 and 6 Music. First Brand goes, Ross is suspended then Douglas resigns too. The BBC Trust and Director General have issued statements and… Continue
