Ofcom provides Product Placement logo
Saturday 5 March 2011 2:10AM

Hello: okay, apologies, I do get it a bit heated, but I just can't abide screen detritus...I find it so distracting and vulgar. It really does make my blood boil. Anyhow, I still can't work out whether they mean that the logo will appear for 3 seconds during the opening frames of each programme and also into the opening frames of a programme as it continues after the break. Because seeing a logo appear immediately as dialogue starts after an ad break would be irritating and yet another annoyance, even if it appears for only three seconds. Sort of like a flash text. I can't ignore wretched flys when they land on the TV screen either!

Joe: I'm also glad to see the CBeebies go, but I am one who would hope the comedy was left as is...or even added to. I very much enjoy it.

nick: thanks a lot. Seems pretty clear then that I've been given quite an overestimate. This chap was recommended by a friend as well. I phoned him last night and told him the quote I'd been given and he was flabbergasted. He never wrote the quote down either. Just on a notepad and he kept it. Ask me if. I'd be able to remember it or if I'd like to write anything down from his notepad. And not vat registered either. In brackets at end of his quote on his notepad he'd written (no vat).

Sorry. Posted from phone. Not really illiterate. I also tried posting he had written 'no vat' in brackets.

Think I need to get more quotes.
