I'm sure TV writers have shortcut keys for the phrases 'In tonight's programme...', 'still to come...', 'coming up next...', 'earlier we saw...'
It's a way of making programmes cheaper and, sadly, must be effective in retaining viewers across the advert breaks.
These days, of course, you can't just be a snob and say 'That's commercial television, I only watch the BBC' because BBC programmes are made with one eye on the aftermarket and contain the same devices for when the show gets run every hour on ReallyPickFoodTV.
I take my proverbial hat off to those sensible [brave] thoroughbred racehorses that refuse to go into the stalls at the start of a race or the 'jumpers' that unseat their riders approaching obstacles, when they are not in the mood!
It might pay to see some of those sensible (brave) thoroughbred racehorses, who refuse or do not come up to scratch. Quite a number end up as horsemeat, due to their living costs and expensive vet's bills.
