It’s hot at the moment, so excuse the lack of anything remotely insightful in this entry. I shouldn’t let today’s History and Geography component of Humanities go without mention – History was pretty straightforward and Geography was an environmentalist’s dream focusing on air pollution, traffic congestion and global warming. OK OK you’ve made the point, just be a bit more subtle about it next time eh?
The exam itself was the stereotypical hot gym hall and I was dying for water by the end of it. Most entertaining moment was someone’s phone going off inside their pocket. Hahaha – you’re screwed.
E4 and E4+1 have launched on Freeview today. It’s quite a big deal – another blow to Sky’s crippling platform with spiralling revenues and declining content. Unfortunately Big Brother also starts tonight, the show I’ve always found utterly dull beyond belief. I might be avoiding Babbleblog for the next month or so too
The important question about E4 – is it a commercial decision or a political one?

The answer, I guess, will come whenever E4 makes a profit!
