    Finally the BBC broadcasts something worth watching, excellent.

    your quote is a little messed up, BTW

    I like this part: "It has been described as the Kate Moss of fonts - ultrathin, misunderstood and plastered all over the tabloids." :D


    but I'm not so sure I want to see a programme about a font. :p

    Should be sorted now, :), I've been having a few problems with MR recently.

    Philistine. ;)

    Essential watching for all those who have read anything anywhere in a public space. :p

    Regardless of subject matter, supposed to be a good film. Does anyone know what's different, what's missing, from the longer version? I want to see the extras on the DVD. :D

    BBC One as well... absolutely worth watching; learn something today about something that is all around us, almost all the time.

    Channel 5, late night - "When Good Fonts Go Bad"

    Didn't Disney make a movie about her?

    Balls, too many Comic Sans posts already!:(

    I was going to say:

    I hope I've missed the Comic Sans episode!

    Thanks for spotting and posting about this or I'd have been really annoyed to realise I'd missed it.

    Am sending an email home to remind me to turn the TV on tonight.

    Thanks for mentioning it's on, iGav – I would have missed it otherwise.

    The Sky+ has been set, and Miss Jaffa Cake is now laughing at me. I note from the description on the Sky channel thingy that this programme 'contains strong language', so clearly Comic Sans does rear its head at some point. :D

    Note how the description on the BBC website is of course in… Arial.

    Presumably there was no sex or violence in this one, then?

    Bah.

    I missed it and I'm really annoyed.

    I'll scour the schedules tonight looking for a repeat. I imagine it'll find its way onto BBC 2 or BBC 4 at some point again...
