Weather Report

Here is the weather forecast from the Glasgow studios of BBC Scotland.

I did notice when we visited Britain that news and weather presenters are inclined to be older people than the presenters we see here in Australia.

  1. I don't think Charlie should give up his day job or what ever job he does do :-).

  2. Hello Andrew:
    Is there anything into which that man is prevented from meddling?

  3. All the news stations here in the states were showing the prince talk about the weather in Scotland. I think I saw it three times tonight and loved it each time.

  4. They replayed this on the BBC news last night - I was surprised to find myself actually enjoying his conversational, slightly befuddled style.

  5. Vast improvement over those dreadful, lurid, public bitch fights between he and his ex.
    As for all that rain and 8 degrees celsius, was this a recent recording? I mean, is it supposed to be getting warmer there?

  6. I loved it, he's got a great sense of humour, tho I didn't rate his missus' effort.

  7. I saw him on TV tonight, I thought he was quite funny. Doing the weather report isn't as easy as it looks.

  8. All, I ditched a post to post this to try to beat the media. It seems I failed. It was amusing and a good stroke by his PR people. What we people in the colonies and ex colonies don't realise is that most(changed to many, changed back to most) people in England have absolutely no interest or connection with the royals. They are as remote and irrelevant to them as they are to us in Australia.

  9. His old man is funny too.
    There's no interest in the Royals? Prince Will's wedding closed down entire cities including this one. If I could have gotten just ten cents from each viewer I'd have achieved my dream by now of owning a mansion full of dancing girls.

  10. Until he starts bungee jumping, feeding tigers, abseiling bridges and the like he will be out of step with our weather prognosticators.

  11. If I had to be 65 or 75 or whatever Prince Charles might be before he gets a proper paying job, I too would be looking to a career as a weather reporter. Or a gardener. Or a naval officer.

  12. Royalty is a job I'd refuse.

    My cousin is a naval officer and a thorough idiot.

  13. Well I might take the job if I could be like George the Third or Edward the V111, both funny characters.

    Or Ludwig of Bavaria who built all those strange palaces, he was a funny king too.

  14. RH, rather depends on what part of England people are in and their class level. Didn't Ludwig go made?

    Victor, your Sydney weather presenters must be very adventurous souls!

    Hels, I think the public would be happier with King William.

    RH, surely he was total idiot before he became a naval officer.

  15. Yes, and he'd be a total idiot as a social worker too but no one would notice.

    Ludwig? Mad, yes. Did you know that in the 18th century lords and ladies went on escorted tours through mental wards to enjoy the antics of the mad? It was the reality TV of its day.

  16. So not true Andrew!! Surely you don't think millions of Americans and other tourists go to England for the warm beer haha!

  17. Windsmoke - he doesn't need a job other than collecting the 12m quid rent each year for Dartmoor Prison that he owns.
    and Fruitcake - 8 degrees and rain is what I have right now in 3350.
    I have not seen TV weather/news since Black Saturday.

  18. Grace, I expect you think people only go to England because it is on the way to Paris.

  19. Lennie Macpherson, known as the Mister Big of Sydney crime, told a Royal Commission his only income came from being caretaker of a run down little building in Ashfield.

    Poor Lennie, but apparently the pay wasn't bad, better than what Prince Charlie gets if you calculate it on scheduled public appearances.

    Lennie doing the weather on TV would have been quite a hit but I think I really and truly would die laughing.

  20. I wasn't so familiar with Lennie and so I read a bit. Most interesting. Which city was more corrupt back then? Sydney or Melbourne? Well, there was only one Askin type.

  21. So true Andrew haha!You're beginning to figure me out too well!
