Does it get on your nerves when you start to watch a program and they start by showing you what is coming up, they waste around 5+ minutes showing it before the program starts properly?

The police camera programs do it all the time, I mute the sound and put my hand up so I can just see the corner of the screen till the program starts properly, then they still do it before the adverts for the next half, it just winds me up.

And then after the adverts they show you again what they had showed you earlier in case you have the memory retention of a goldfish.

So everything gets shown at least 3 times, sometimes more, and a 20 minute programme is padded out to an hour.



I can't be doing with it.

But nothing is as bad as when your watching you favorite film on tv and they say "will continue after the news" talk about taking the mick waiting half an hour to watch the rest of the film.[:C][:(!]

By the time you've skipped through the bits about
"We've already seen earlier, how ..."
and
"Coming up later in the programme ..."

There's no damn programme left !

The BBC are just as bad for this, probably 'cos they've no adverts to help drag it out.

It's even worse when the 6 o clock news does it. How many time do you need to see the same interview
