Take one national news icon to serve as frontman, add a couple of super-annuated reporters, sprinkle with edited input from miscellaneous experts, throw in a middling budget and some indifferent production values and the dubious treat which results is the Beeb's new flagship current affairs show, "The Wales Report".
Far too lightweight to be described as superficial, the replacement for Dragon's Eye managed to take patronising television to a whole new level. Even the politicians appeared embarrassed by the anodyne questioning. As for the exercise into the blindingly effin' obvious which passed as a report into the crisis in regional rugby, the only thing missing was a grainy Max Boyce clip.
All in all, a new show that is very, very old hat indeed.
