    our ICT teacher often shows this clown when he hasn't done any lesson planning, The kids all sit there wondering what he's actually saying because as a collection of words they all make sense but the sentences are nonsensical!

    I've yet to find anything that RCJ has said which isn't complete drivel. The guy has no idea!

    Also, the negative comments about gamers on that article are somewhat annoying. People still have this idea that gamers are all basement dwelling cheese puff eating fat guys.

    Making that generalisation is about as sensible as saying all car drivers want to be F1 drivers, or that everyone who watches TV likes X-Factor.

    Leary Cellophane Jeans is a dufus. He knows nowt when it comes to the subject he's supposed to be reporting on - a trait many BBC 'journalists' seem to share.

    If you want to see a bigger BBC plonker in action then check out Marc Chickensh!t's piece on this week's Click programme about the Xbox One:

    Watched that and cringed......
    Click used to be quite good - it's complete shite now. In fact the BBC itself is turning into a Daily Mail type entity.

    Never!

    Best HYS comment yet....-cartman-world-warcraft.jpg

    It does annoy me that the worlds largest grossing media generator and past time gets almost zero mainstream TV coverage. At 43 I judge myself to be amongst the worlds first gaming generation and even back in the late 80's early 90's there were several shows dedicated to gaming on the BBC and independent stations. Now? As far as I can tell, zero. Sometime soon this is going to bite the BBC/ITV/C4 etc. hard as they neglect a pastime enjoyed by many millions of people in the UK.
    Why on Earth do they think I'd rather watch Strictly Come Dancing?!!! I'd much rather watch a show called 'Headshot!'.

    I agree - for a long time now gaming has been seriously ignored as a topic for tv coverage in any depth.

    Other countries have primetime programming devoted to gaming / it / tech.

    What do we have - Click and the Gadget Show - both which can be highly superficial and annoying.

    All I can say is thank heavens for YouTube - I get to watch quite a few quality shows from the USA and other countries - there's some great programs out there.

    Aye. 99% of what I watch is YouTube. [and 99% of that is gaming related.]

    Can you list some channels/shows please?
    I see lots on YouTube often, but it would be handy to have some that are 'regular'

    Trouble is gaming coverage on YouTube has also been the victim of weaponised copyright law. Don't like a review of the game? Takedown request. Covering our footage? Copyright claim and all money taken away from the person or outlet producing the video. It's becoming a minefield like the music industry.

    Live stream shows are good too for gaming, such as those on Twitch.
