Friday 28th November 2008: A small correction to the score for 1974 International Heat 7 today, with thanks to Neil Storer.

Friday 21st November 2008: Team information added for the Oldham heat 1977. Also a small fix to the 1977 Scoreboard has been made. Thanks also to Ian Beard for kindly looking out and scanning the Radio Times programme listing for the 1966 Grand Final. This has just been added to the Media: Radio Times section and can be seen here...

Thursday 20th November 2008: First update in a couple of rather busy months. Sorry for the breakdown in service, folks. These sporadic updates will probably continue for the foreseeable future due to professional commitments and other projects I currently have on the boil, but rest assured, JSFnetGB is not going away... Thanks to Richard Farnham for his kind email which has inspired me to catch up with the site, and also for sending a Radio Times photocopy for the 1982 International Final, which has been added to the appropriate section - see it here. Thanks and a round of applause for his continued tenacity and dedication to Neil Storer, who has updated the Series Guide once more, with significant additions to 1980, 1981 and 1982. Smaller updates and fixes have been made to 1970, 1972, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979 and 1983-1987, in addition to the Scoreboard pages for 1970, 1971, 1979, 1980 and 1982. Thanks Neil, and my apologies for not having transcribed them to the site earlier.

Thursday 11th September 2008: Thanks are due to Neil Storer tonight, for supplying copious updates for the Series Guide and the Scoreboard. Most pages from 1969-1978 have received significant updates, with 1979 having a major overhaul. Cheers, Neil!

Friday 8th August 2008: Many thanks to Kevin Fletcher, a competitor in the 1970 Margate team for getting in contact with JSFnetGB and for a Margate team photo (Teams 1970) and the names of some of the team members (Series Guide 1970). Thanks also to Neil Storer for providing the games information for the Margate domestic heat.

Wednesday 6th August 2008: Neil Storer has kindly sent some lovely scans of items of memorabilia from the 1979-1982 period to be shared with JSFnetGB visitors and these can be found on the following pages - 1979, 1980, 1981a, 1981f, 1981g and 1981h. Thanks, Neil.

Tuesday 5th August 2008: The newly-located Teams section has now been further populated with team photos from 1977, 1978, 1979 and 1981. Many thanks to Neil Storer for supplying all these items for our visitors to enjoy.

Saturday 26th July 2008: A nice update for the 1973 Series Guide today, with games and full team squads added for Heat 4.

Monday 21st July 2008: Further to yesterday's update, Paul has kindly sent me the result of the 1970 clash between Ramsgate and Margate, which he meant to send me yesterday, but overlooked. This means that the last outstanding result in the 1970 domestic It's A Knockout series has been unearthed. A further update tonight is a purely structural one: as I've long thought that the 'Team Photos' section was ill-placed within the Collectables area, I've now moved it up a level, so it has its own section. This, like Collectables, is a subsection of Features, now renamed Fil Rouge. Keep up!  :)

Sunday 20th July 2008: Some great updates today from Paul Leaver, who has researched some early It's A Knockout results for the site. He has been able to add two new results for 1968 (completing the IAK results for that year!), another for 1969 and three for 1970. I can't stress just how important it is to the site that the Series Guide continues to be updated and becomes nearer to the time when it is the most comprehensive record available. It is the backbone of the site and it gives me great pleasure that it continues to creep nearer and nearer to being definitive. The help that Paul continues to give to this site, along with that of others, like Neil, Christos, Mike, Brian and Richard, is hugely, massively appreciated. Without you, people, JSFnetGB would be a far poorer resource. Thank you all.

Wednesday 30th April 2008: Significant additions to the Series Guide for 1978 today, courtesy of the industrious Neil Storer. Updates to the page include details of team members, weather conditions, games and behind-the-scenes information. Thanks, Neil!

Wednesday 16th April 2008: Today it's 1977 that gets a brush up from Neil Storer. Many thanks to Neil for his continued hard work for the site.

Tuesday 15th April 2008: A big update regarding Heat 1 of It's A Knockout 1978 today, to add full squads to the 1978 Series Guide listing and detail the games played. Thanks are due to our Greek correspondent, Christos Moustakas for correcting a couple of details relating to his country's teams and presenters in the 1993 and 1994 Series Guide pages. Additionally, Neil Storer has given 1976 the once over and made plenty of additions and corrections. Many thanks to Neil and Christos!

Saturday 29th March 2008: Neil Storer has kindly added some information to the Series Guide page for 1975 today. Many thanks, Neil. Thanks also to Christos Moustakas for spotting an error on our 1995 page - the theme for the International Final is now correct thanks to him.

Monday 24th March 2008: More updates from Neil today, as the 1974 Series Guide gets a spruce-up! Thanks, Neil.

Sunday 23rd March 2008: I'm grateful to Neil Storer who has supplied further updates to the 1973 Series Guide page today. More to come over the next few days... Also added today, with thanks to Mauro Tozzi for his help, a biography of Italian JSF presenter, Ettore Andenna.

Monday 17th March 2008: A smattering of corrections tonight, centring on the 1977 and 1978 Series Guide and Scoreboard pages, and references to the Belgian RTB and French A2F television channels from 1977 onwards. Thanks to Neil Storer for these. Thanks also to Christos Moustakas for helpfully pointing out a translation error regarding the Pula Amphitheatre venue used in 1981. Cheers.

Sunday 16th March 2008: After the explosion of updates yesterday, today's are somewhat more sedate and restrained! A few minor corrections to typos in the articles added yesterday (inevitable when you consider that the pages were all being worked on overnight to keep me awake for the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix!), plus revisions to the 1972 Series Guide and its accompanying Scoreboard, again thanks to Neil Storer.

Saturday 15th March 2008: More fevered work on the Series Guide today, with 1971 getting a thorough update which contains several previously absent results added (for the first time anywhere!) and copious notes and other additions. 1969 and 1970 have also been added to. Additionally, the Scoreboard for 1971 has been added today, and the Series Guide pages have all been revised to include details of Silver Trophies awarded to Heat Winners. All of this is courtesy of Neil Storer, who continues to be a valuable contributor to JSFnetGB. Many thanks, Neil. Also added today -- phew! -- a Sunderland team photo from 1981, plus three new (albeit brief) biographies of Dutch presenters Barend Barendse, Regine Clauwaert and Dick Passchier and an Other Flavours page for the Dutch domestic series, Zeskamp.

Friday 14th March 2008: We are pleased to welcome a new JSFnet website to our illustrious group - JSFnetHUNGARY. The site's webmaster, Haraszti Bernadett, made a great start - and I look forward to seeing the Hungarian arm of our group flourish.

Thursday 13th March 2008: A couple of team photos of the 1976 Morecambe squad added to Team Photos.

Wednesday 12th March 2008: Team colour information has been revised tonight in the Scoreboard section. Thanks to Neil Storer for his assistance.

Tuesday 11th March 2008: Thanks to Robert Dee for supplying German newspaper cuttings which have been added to the Newspapers section for 1973 and which have provided some useful team information for the 6th JSF heat of 1973 from Blankenberge, Belgium. English translations of the articles coming soon.

Monday 10th March 2008: Another Series Guide update today, hot on the heels of yesterday's revisions. Today we're concentrating on the early days of the series, with plenty of new information and corrections to the 1969 and 1970 pages, with grateful thanks to Neil Storer, who has also provided information that has enabled me to add two pages to the Scoreboard, for the same years. Additionally, all JSF entries in the Series Guide (1967-1999) now denote the teams which progressed to the International Finals and also which teams went away with gold, silver and bronze trophies from those finals. Cheers, Neil!

Sunday 9th March 2008: An important update to the Series Guide today - plenty of fresh and updated information added to the 1988 and 1989 pages, care of Neil Storer. Due to the new information, the Scoreboard pages for 1988 and 1989 have also been revised. A new addition to the Collectables section comes from Neil Harvey - a scan of the cover of the souvenir programme from IAK Cambridge 1975. Thanks also to Robert Dee for contacting us regarding a couple of the items in the Collectables: Promotional section which he had submitted to the site, but which we had incorrectly credited. Our sincere apologies - we are more than happy to correct any errors or omissions on the site. Many thanks to Neil, Neil and Robert.

Sunday 17th February 2008: Antony Brown has kindly contacted us following Friday's update to say that he has noticed that our result for the first JSF heat of 1979 (from Ascona, Switzerland) was slightly wrong. This has now been updated. Many thanks, Antony.

Friday 15th February 2008: Many thanks to Neil Harvey for contacting us at JSFnetGB to point out an inaccuracy on our Series Guide: 1975 page. This affects Domestic Heats 6 (Southsea Castle) and 7 (Cambridge). Basically, our recording dates for these two heats were erroneous, and our information regarding the venue of the Cambridge heat has proved to be inaccurate, despite being from BBC paperwork. Just goes to show that even the BBC can occasionally be proved wrong - Neil's information is definitely unimpeachable and we hope to present the proof in the coming days! We always welcome corrections and additions - if you think we have something wrong, don't hesitate to let us know. We are always grateful for such assistance. Also added tonight is a rather nice 1972 promotional item.

Sunday 27th January 2008: It's been a busy start to the year, and unfortunately, JSFnetGB has been playing second fiddle to my professional life, which has been going through a period of upheaval. Nothing terrible - it's just taken a lot of my attention for a while. A bit of catching up here today, with some additions to the Collectables section that have been hanging around for some considerable while! Take a look at the following pages for the new items: 1979, 1982 and 1987. All that remains now is for me to very belatedly wish all visitors and contributors to JSFnetGB a very happy and enjoyable 2008!
