ITV - derogatory remark against sexuality
I was disgusted by Danni making a sexist remark to Danyl. This was a direct hit at his sexuality and a deliberate attempt to get him voted out of the xfactor. Whether he is hetrosexual or homosexual is irrelevant it was not commented on by anyone else and neither should it be.
If she is homophobic then she should be removed as a judge, if this was a deliberate attempt to humiliate and alienate someone then she should never be in a position to be a mentor or voice her opinions.
I will be filing a complaint from my organisation as well as this personal one as a public figure should promote values and understanding not 1950 opinions!!
ITV - scam and cheating
Tried all-mighty cleanse through ITV on the internet, also on an info-commercial. Had a 30 day guarantee. Tried it, didn't work, called them and they gave me info. To return it at my expense. Ordered Oct. 30 and returned it Nov. 20th by delivery confirmation. I called, first they said they did not receive it, and then I said I sent it delivery confirmation, and then they said they found it of course and will send it to the credit dept for refund. No refund, called 3 times a month since Nov, and each time they said they would resubmit the refund and nothing happens. I even told them I would take them to small claims and no refund. Getting a complete runaround the whole time. They also charged me for shipping when it was advertised free and they said they would refund that and of course no refund. Have never had so many problems trying to get a refund before.
ITV - &living with michael jackson& documentary by martin bashir
I am asking the board to review the following two documentaries. The first is a documentary that was compiled by Martin Bashir while he worked at Granada Television between [protected]. It is called: "Living With Michael Jackson" by Martin Bashir. It first aired on Granada television in the Uk on 2/3/03, and, then, on ABC, in U.S. on2/6/03. This is the site:
This link will bring you to Part One of ten parts. When each part is finished, just click on the next numbered part.
Then, PLEASE, watch Michael Jackson "Take Two The Footage You Were Never Meant To See". This documentary was aired by Maury Povich on Fox television at the request of Michael Jackson, because he was so deeply hurt by Bashir's misrepresentation of him. Bashir deleted critical segments that would have provided truthful accounts of some of the topics discussed, as well as Mr. Bashir inserting a narrative that contradicted what he said to the superstar in his presence. This documentary was filmed while Mr. Bashir was filming his, with the consent of all present. The site is:
Just click on the above site, and the entire eight parts wll sequentially follow.
To the best of my knowledge, Granada possesses this documentary, but I, also, have been told that other networks possess it, in its entirety or in segments, in the U. S., networks such as ABC and MNBC, and probably others. I am asking that the Bashir documentary be banned from any future airing on any network, due to its slanderous content, as well as the unethical and unprofessional manner in which the information was obtained and edited, that corrupts fundamental journalistic principles that everyone relies upon and need to have a faith in.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
I look forward to hearing from you.
ITV - lexi's infertility
I want to state how upset I am by the total lack of understanding shown in Emmerdale about the story of Lexi's infertility. Lexi was supposed to have had an ovary & tube removed due to an ectopic pregnancy, with her one remaining tube damaged by scar tissue therefore making her infertile. I myself have had a tube and ovary removed due to adhesions, with my other tube damaged to the point I cannot have children. Firstly, when I had my operation I was in hospital for 5 days and off work for 16 weeks. I couldn't drive for a minimum of 8 weeks and it was so painful to get up and walk about, even just to the toilet and back. The hospital wouldn't let me go home unless someone was able to look after me for at least two weeks. Lexi seems as though nothing has happened - she was allowed home almost straight away, she is getting to/from hospital appointments alone, walking around the village without any problems. Talk about make light of a very serious operation! And the way Lexi is dealing with her infertility is almost insulting - try having your heart totally broken, pulled out of your chest, thrown on the floor and trampled on every day when you see a baby or someone who is pregnant - then you might just start to understand how it feel every single day! Can't wait to see what they do about the IVF. I've been told that because my partner has children from another relationship I can't have IVF on the NHS - I have to go private which costs around £5000 minimum each! How are Lexi & Carl going to afford that - or have the Emmerdale writers not bothered to check the details again and just let them have NHS treatment!
ITV - doc martin
I wish to complain profusely about the episode of Doc Martin shown tonight (Friday July 3rd) and the scene showing an elderly lady and younger man having sex. This was vulgar and totally out of character for both the show and the character involved. I am truly sickened by this and am furious that it should have been shown on what I had believed to be a family show. It is supposed to be a comedy drama, not a site for pornography. I will not be watching the show in future and am most upset by this abuse to my eyes. Please ITV, do NOT let this type of thing be shown. Thank you. Gelfling.
ITV - two grand winning with a sob story and no talent.
I and many others believe it is shocking that Two Grand won in the semi finals against Aiden Davis!
Firstly Two Grand were never that spectacular singers to begin with and Simon Cowell was in total agreement with this, however in the semi finals after seeing their sob story decided to love them and put them through against Aiden Davis!
Aiden Davis was pure talent right there, he's what they would called on my Performing Arts course a 'Triple Threat'; singing, acting and dancing.
The boy was fantastic and I would gladly have him perform infront of the monarchy, he was definetely a huge contender to win.
Instead Two Grand got put through; fair enough they've been through a hard time and they're not bad, but they are never going to win in a million years and the judges should have put someone through with actual potential to win and not the sobbers favourite.
This has just proved to me that shows like Britain's Got Talent and XFactor care about the sob story and not much else. I bet if Aiden was from an Orphanage or a broken home he'd be through to the finals.
Should he really be punished for having a happy child hood?
Just shows that all you need to win Britain's Got Talent is no talent and a few tears.
ITV - poor camera angles+no scoreboard
David Pleat is a boring commentator!!!
THERE IS NO SCOREBOARD OR TIME!!! we got back from the chinese at approximately we dont know because there isnt a scoreboard. to find david pleat attempting to explain why a certain 'fowl' was not a foul by switching to the camera man, to witch my companion said "how the f**k can i see if that is a fowl from that angle!"

ITV - britain's got talent
I recently viewed an episode of Britain's Got Talent, in which a lady auditioned as a Christian Mime artist. Her act was miming to Christian music and lyrics. Whilst I recognise that those who audition are going to face a certain amount of ridicule if their act is not entertaining or relevant, I feel that the comments from the judges stepped over a line. It did appear that the judges were ridiculing her faith as a Christian and not just her act, all for a quick laugh. After some technical issues, and being asked to sing as the tape wouldn't play, she was buzzed out of the competition. Some of the judges quipped that 'God works in mysterious ways', 'someone is giving you a sign'. I appreciate that the contestants performance was not the most comfortable to watch, but was appalled at the response from the judges who I feel were pushing her into a corner to defend her faith. I feel quite sad that not only did ITV think it was acceptable to air this, but also to build her story up before and after the performance to make it a 'failure feature' in the programme. To me it comes across as quite a deliberate and pointed attack on this lady's faith, and gives the impression to the general public that it's OK to make fun of some one's faith.
For the record, I'm a level-headed, regular Christian and I hate mime, particularly bad mime! But good on the contestant for her bravery in front of the judges.
i was shocked and horrified at fearne cottons very biased view of pro anorexia sites. not only did she suggest these sites, which are used for support by many people suffering with eating disorder...Read full review
ITV - the bill & heartbeat the royal
i am sending this email regarding the changes of times & deleting programmes like the bill moving it to 1 day a week & deleting heartbeat & the royal to cut costs . this is terrible when you put on so many reailty programmes which are poor quality or of no intrest to the public & have poor viewing figures when the bill & heartbeat often attract viewers of 7 to 8 million a week this makes no sense .
why are we paying a lot of money for tv licence although i understand the bbc get most of it this ridiculous to cut programmes people watch & put rubbish on people dont when you get more revenue from advertisers from programmes people watch.
ITV - scheduling of advertising and specific programme
I have seen an advert during a family film, fora forthcoming ITV programme called 'Demons'. It is scheduled to be broadcast on Saturday 3rd January 2009 at 7.20 pm. The advert terrified itself is deeply disturbing, depicting blood sucking, Satanic looking creatures and hideous and menacing monsters. The whole hoorible programme is set to be televised ata prime time for young children. This surely CANNOT be suitable and is utterly beyond acceptable and looks similar to adult rated horror films.
The trailer is shocking - what on earth is the actual programme going to be like? there will be fine performances no doubr from some excellent actors but why is it on so early and why are the railers on so early?
My complaint is that it is adult viewing before the watershed.
Awful, horrble and disturbing. Sadly, I am probably adding to the draw of such a programme ( any publicity is good publicity, right?) but for the sake of all young children who may be watching, I am complaining.
ITV - carole mcgiggin - loose women
Do we really have to be subjected to listing to a 40 something 'lady' giving graphic details of her lust for a 26 year old who is of course only with her because she is 'famous' in the very minor sense of the word - the woman really is of very low morals & after the Jonathan Ross issue would have thought this sort of thing would not happen.
ITV - pdc grandslam darts poor camera work
is it just me or are the cameramen and directors ITV4s coverage of the PDC grand slam darts totally incompetent as they don’t know the game and pan to wrong parts of the board as darts are being thrown and the viewer misses what’s happening as the cameras are looking the wrong way, sack them or bring in some experienced darts coverage people from sky or the BBC for ###sakes
