That was unanticipated... [Dec. 1st, 2008|08:59 pm]

My cable box has an on-screen menu system which tells me what programmes are available to watch on the telly.

It truncates long programme titles so that they fit into the relevant field on the screen.

Which means that I can now watch "I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Her".

Suggestions invited for other truncated titles.

I like it when it crushes programme titles together. We could watch Star Trek Criminal Minds now, if we wanted to.

Some time ago I managed to grab a (fuzzy) picture of the Sky programme planner abbreviating "The Royal Opening of the Welsh Assembly".......
