Check your remote Hora, something like 85% of programs have subtitling available now, there should be a button you can press if you are struggling to understand the dialect…
Although really anyone lacking a reasonable command of the queens English allowed on Teley should be dubbed over, using either Charlotte Green’s voice or the rich lust tones of Neil Nunes, depending on which makes them appear more ridiculous…
I used to work with a Geordie fella who actually spoke very clear understandable English, likewise I hail from Dorset, but don’t actually have any real accent, Our shared, running joke was to quietly ask the person sat next to us if they could understand a word the other person was saying, when they spoke, This never got tired… EVER*
I do like a bit of regionalism myself, its one of the few, just about, acceptable, ‘isms left… and it’s completely different to Racism… honest…

One thing that annoys me. You can have a Jamaican speaking understandable English but who is subtitled and a Scotsman/etc who I don’t have a scooby-doo what they are saying not.

Apparently he’s spent some time with Jason Rourke,son of Brian, making frames. I worked with Jase some years ago and he is a right Stokie. I imagine the conversation will undoubtedly have lots of chief and cracking in it as already mentioned but what’s making me giggle is the stuff Jase will be saying, umm thingy, mate, d’ya know wharra mean love, duck etc. It will be ace.Posted 4 years agotoys19Member
As much as I’ve tried, I can’t bring myself to like him, despite always liking the subject matter of his shows. Makes for tough viewing!
For some reason he grates with me too, I’m sure he is nice in person, but that Closer to the Edge DVD makes him out to be a bit irritating.
PS Northern is anywhere north of Tiverton, by Taunton I usually have a nosebleed.Posted 4 years ago
