>Still, seeing as they do that with established programmes, that would be consistent, I suppose. A time-wasting three-minute montage of hoary old clips we've seen Christ knows how many times would seem to bear this out.
Did they show THAT clip from Only Fools and Horses?

In fairness, no. VT editor Chris Wadsworth has destroyed it forever. In my dreams.
But all the others you're tired of were there.

Basil hitting the car with the branch?
M&W doing "Bring Me Sunshine" and/or "There Is Nothing Like A Dame" with the newsreaders?
The silly walks or the parrot sketch?
The giant kitten? No, they'd never do that one...
I like the idea of BBC talent you lot should go up for the comedy writers thing if you hate all that is on.
I think that a couple of forum people looked into doing stuff for BBC Talent, but were put off by small print that seemed to sign away the rights to anything that was submitted to the BBC.
ahhh I see... I never read the small print which is why I now own land in Venezuala and Porta Rico and support several charities involuntarily for the low low low cost of... how much?!!?!?!
BBC talent is a bloody joke. It is the ultimate embodiment of the pathetic attitude that believes that people should be _allowed_ to work in the media purely because they want to, irrespective of the notion of whether they might actually have any talent or not. And as I have worked in the media, I do know what I'm talking about there. Too many people manage to get a foothold on the basis of networking and having a loud careerist voice, when they have never displayed even the slightest sign of creativity in their lives. None of the results of BBC talent that I have seen/heard about have impressed me in the slightest, and the whole exercise strikes me as nothing more than the Guardian reader's equivalent of TV's That Programme With Jayne MacDonald.
Come on, disagree with me.
My and my mate had a go at a sitcom, in a kind of joke way that turned really serious after about five minutes. Got a letter from the BBC saying "your script was good, but it had no 20 or 30 somethings sat around in a coffee house dealing with 'issues' and 'relationships'", which the majority of the ten finalists appeard to have. Maybe. Sorry
Yes, this much is true. Still, I keep a copy in a brown envelope under my bed.
Does peter o'hanrahanrahn still hang around on here? I remember those fun pointless arguments people would have, then peter would come back with a really good reply.
Ah, the good old days....

It was only last week...
Peter O is a twit.
The Talent thing was a joke, certainly for sitcom writers. Small print meant you lose the right to send your script to anyone else until the competition was over (about 6 months). You'd be better off sending it to the BBC via 'normal' routes; any commisioner worth their salt would jump on a good script regardless of whether it was part of an initiative. Just an exercise in looking like they're Doing Something, when most decent comedy seems to come from independent production companies; and also when most independent companies give more useful feedback and criticism to unsolicited scripts than the BBC.
wow, you guys get well heated up about stuff like money.
I however am carefree, apart from that stupid coursework in my bedroom...
...which I have done now! Woohoo!
Don't forget to keep a spare copy. Schools have an unfortunate habit of losing copies of coursework, making it necessary to redo the work at the last minute if you wrote it on paper like a Luddite.
Yes, i'm still bitter. well done for telling, though.
