REPORTING TODAY FOR A FUTURE TOMORROW
Welcome to DOOMWATCH
Season Two of Doomwatch got off to an aborted start on Wednesday 16 September 2015. Due to production issues, caused by an unco-operative studio which was being used for our base of broadcasting, the show has taken a break until a new dawn can be engineered. The show will now be produced by Hereward Television, and the plan is to make it as a TV show rather than a radio show with pictures. This can only really be achieved by actually having a television studio to broadcast from, something which is currently being lined up.
When everything is sorted, host alex:g will return, with Text Jockey Jade Cawthorn, cameraman David Johnson, and 'Voice of the Visuals' Nik Fox.
Jade auditioned for Hereward Television at the Peterborough CAMRA Beer Festival 2015, one of dozens to have done so. She made quite an impression, and was almost instantly offered the chance to become the new Text Jockey for Doomwatch.
In its slightly revised format, the show promises to be more of a riot than ever before. Those who complain about the format (a) taking the mickey out of those in the shadows; (b) finding the upbeat in downbeat subjects; and/or (c) asking our experts about their general view of the world rather than only their specialisms, will be writing more negative tripe on comments sections than ever before.
The rest of you will be getting the injokes, joining in live more than ever, and punching the air with glee. The late night slot will mean the gloves will be off in more ways than one. Overselling? Watch this space...
Season One of Doomwatch consisted of 57 'variants' which were produced from 1 November 2013, and when it returns full-time, it will again be a weekly "appointment to view".
Wednesday 16 September 2015 - Join alex:g for a brand new series of Doomwatch, broadcasting every two weeks on Wednesdays, at the more adult-orientated slot of 9.00pm to 11.00pm, beginning this week. New Text Jockey Jade Cawthorn looks forward to receiving your texts, emails and shout-box comments, and Nik Fox is the ‘Voice of the Visuals’, as the show looks at the year 2015 so far with the help of Patrick Henningsen of 21st Century Wire.

This second special edition of the show, live from the British Constitution Group and UK Column Spring Conference 2015, was broadcast live on Sunday 1 March 2015. This variant detailed the outcome of the significant major component of the weekend – where a people’s “Grand Jury” was convened to assemble evidence of institutionalised paedophilia amongst the ranks of the “high and mighty”. With the establishment itself unable (or unwilling?) to investigate such allegations, the conference took on the responsibility to do so itself. Viewer discretion advised – adult themes.
The first of two special editions of the show - this one broadcast live on Saturday 28 February 2015. The theme was the then-forthcoming UK General Election, where speakers from the conference discussed tips on the difficult questions to ask of prospective Parliamentary Candidates, and the follow-up responses you should have ready in your arsenal to fire back at them. alex:g is joined by Text Jockey Daisy Jones, as well as a host of special guests
