THE CRITICS TELEVISION: Expensive holidays in other people's misery

Did you realise that 1996 is Burma's "Year of the Tourist"? But John Pilger advises against visiting just yet. They're still getting the place ready - with slave labour.

Storyboard 8 / Richard, Judy and OJ

Everything you need to know about a story you meant to read

'Isn't that Richard Madeley? I thought he was meant to be interviewing OJ Simpson at this very moment...'

ANOTHER VIEW: Don't go, Richard and Judy

The relocation of Granada television's This Morning programme to a new London base has been presented almost exclusively as a matter of personal convenience for Richard and Judy, the show's presenters. They are tired of travelling, and finding it difficult to get big-name guests to travel to the programme, so it is goodbye to the heart of Granada television's operations in Liverpool.
