I usually visit bbc.co.uk but a few others also, Channel 4 being one of them. I think...if ITN owns Channel 4, I may have watched something similar from them over satellite years ago, but I can't remember that too well.
I still watch BBC when it's on and listen to World Radio
Countdown? Unless you're speaking of the BBC News 24 countdowns, then no :-(
I'm 38%, so it tells me. There are a few channels like that that show indie films that are not widely known of, but really fine. A good amount of them are with subtitles, and that doesn't bother me. I've heard that people don't watch them because " I can't watch the screen and read at the same time. "
The first person I heard that comment from was one of my history teachers .
Nope, cunt isn't a word we're allowed to broadcast (though Johnny Rotten broke that rule recently on live television :-D). We have identical adverts where the same celebrities are asked questions in the same style.
Bono said something like "this is fucking great" at the Grammys or Emmys or some awards show late last year. After that, the FCC (which governs just about everything that is broadcast openly) said that it was okay because he used it as an exclamatory adjective, but you couldn't use it as a noun or literally (no "Holy fuck!" or "You fat fuck" or "we were fucking last night, when...").
The only reason they said that is because adults here think that Bono is one of the few good role models for kids today. The flaw in their reasoning is that hardly any kids listen to U2 anymore.
They recently -- within the last week, I believe -- overturned their decision and fined Bono, mostly so that Howard Stern, who they are trying to get kicked off the air for 'indecency' or 'obsenity' or some such nonsense, wouldn't be able to say that they were playing favorites
