RE: C5 to be sold to Viacom

"Viacom described Channel 5 as 'one of British television's biggest brands'"

Yes, that's the same story the OP posted, just from a different source.

I didn't miss bob hoskins yesterday i thought somebody else might have started a RIP thread, very sad news all the same, he was a great actor and will be sadly missed, he could have had another ten years of life.   :cry:

No, i was just saying if he died in his 80's he would have had a good innings, 71 is a bit young to die.
