  • CD:UK (CountDown:United Kingdom), stylised as cd:uk, was a British music television programme. Originally run in conjunction with SMTV Live, the programme first aired on ITV on 29 August 1998 to rival the BBC's Live & Kicking and was the replacement for The Chart Show, which had been airing on the network for nine and a half years. In contrast to its predecessor, which only showed promo videos, CD:UK was broadcast live on Saturday mornings with a studio audience and featured live performances, as well as star interviews and competitions. It also featured the Saturday Chart, which although was unofficial, usually reflected the new chart positions a day before the official chart was announced on Radio 1. This made the BBC's long-running Top of the Pops, which aired only the night before, seem very out-of-date broadcasting the previous week's chart. CD:UK later utilised an interactive chart based on viewers' votes, called the MiTracks Countdown. From 1999 to 2003, the show was sponsored by Tizer and Ribena In 2002, the programmes was criticised for showing "raunchy" performances in a slot aimed at children, sparked by a performance of "Dirrty" by Christina Aguilera. In response, a spin-off programme entitled CD:UK Hotshots, featuring music videos which could be considered unsuitable for daytime viewing, was launched in January 2003 and broadcast overnight. In its first seven and a half years, CD:UK had become one of the most important music programmes on British television, but by 2006, its future looked uncertain. (en)
  • CD:UK (abréviation de Count Down:United Kingdom) était une émission télévisée britannique diffusée de 1998 à 2006 sur la chaîne ITV (aujourd'hui ITV1). L'émission avait à peu près le même concept que Top of the Pops et Live & Kicking, c'est-à-dire que des artistes venaient interpréter les singles les plus populaires du moment. Cette émission voulait être le principal concurrent de Top of the Pops. Même si l'émission était tout public, des performances jugées choquantes ont été tout de même diffusées, comme la performance de Christina Aguilera sur sa chanson Dirrty en 2002 a créée la première controverse du programme. Même chose en 2004 pour Britney Spears sur sa performance de Breathe On Me. Vers 2000, CD:UK a réussi à rivaliser avec son principal concurrent, Top of the Pops. CD:UK prit fin le 1er avril 2006 après 8 ans de diffusion. (fr)
