Thank goodness for whomever invented subtitles!! I just would not watch any television at all if there were no such thing as subtitles!
In fact, there are now subtitles for programmes that go out live - clearly this is difficult as although there may be a basic script things don't always go to plan, but it does mean that I can follow the news or the live breakfast programmes.
However, it is the live subtitles that are the funniest as they sometimes get it wrong!!
This morning, I was eating my breakfast and watching GMTV when the presenters were talking about events that happened in the past and said "Windsor Castle burned".....the subtitles said "Windsor Castle burped" - well, as you can imagine - that cracked me up!
