No, it was because of the passing of Mrs LKY. They had a scrolling text overlay when showing I,Robot stating that.

Probably too caught up with KWC's memorial programs and all starts to screw up.

I find it extremely baffling over the hype over her dismised despite her non involvement in politics. She somehow been portrayed by the media as on par with a statesmen. Am I missing something somewhere ?

i guess you should read up more before making statements with such strong undertones.

They're airing a different kind of programme at 9.30, so News got pushed forward to 9.

Exactly! My deepest respects to the late Mdm LKY, but I don't understand the reasoning behind this.

She would've preferred solidarity in thought, instead of this weak, feeble, poorly thought through display of supposed respect.

Cos this one involves China, cannot anyhow change haha!!! but i think its cos they are not showing the memorial program
i think this is a big screw-up by mediacorp.

really inappropriate to show a celebratory program on channel 8 if their intention is to show respect to the late mrs.lee.

i can understand tat 'I am Legend', a zombie and 'walking-dead' movie, might not be that appropriate a show to air given the current sad situation/scenario.

but channel 8 showing a celebratory program??????????????



u've got me there, tcs! :thumbsup:

I think mediacorp is more worried about the shows fitting their schedule than about respect issues. The main reason for them to change the show should be because of the movie length rather than the theme.

errr... then why did they say out of respect to the late mrs.lee n thus not airing 'I am Legend'?





all points to a major screw-up by tcs. what else is new?

ok guys, thanks for the input!


rather unsurprisingly, tcs screwed up once again.



think i'd just go n get a DVD of 'I am Legend' instead of waiting for channel 5 to air it again. cannot imagine they decide to once again show 'i, robot' to pwn me once more! :bsmilie:
