Loads of kids have sent in their opinions on the new-look Newsround. To me the 'screens' mentioned in an explanation of the graphics look more like eyes attached to optic nerve stalks. So as well as presenting us with the news they're also watching out for the news.

The Sun reports that there will be a kiss between two gay characters on Eastenders. Such a kiss goes more or less unnoticed on Hollyoaks, but this is the BBC so the writers decided to get Dot Cotton to comment that she's as liberal as anyone else but doesn't like seeing that sort of behaviour in public. The episode will be shown on 7th October 2008, which is exactly ten years since Matthew Shepard was assaulted on account of his sexual orientation.
