FNN sometimes try to persuade the Queen to allow them access here, knowing it’s a waste of time trying to get Eileen to change her mind, but to date have failed. The Queen doesn’t trust them to stick to those royals with a reasonable record. She thinks they want to dig up all the gossip and scandal concerning Queen Gwendolyn, great-grandmother to Roxannadrell and Eileen. The one comfort the Queen has on all this is that it’s one of the few areas where she and Eileen are united.
The fairy-vision system itself is a direct lift of television from earth. The Kingdom is happy to despise humanity but nick its good ideas. Gwendolyn saw the usefulness of having a system where news could be broadcast around the realm without the need for using magical energy. Sadly it gave the Kingdom FNN with their goblin news reporter, Roherum, who thinks he’s God’s gift when everybody else knows he isn’t. Having said that, he can be insightful (it usually happens by accident) and knows the weatherman is after his job.
The main programmes on FNN (Fairy News Network) are the news bulletins though Roherum also fronts This Week’s Royal Gossip Show which Roxannadrell loathes (and is amazed at what can be found to gossip about, this amazement is not in a good way). There are some wildlife programmes but most things on the schedule are fronted by Roherum or written by Roherum or commissioned by Roherum and sometimes a combination of these. Nobody’s sure where Roherum came from to be able to do all this but they know they’re stuck with him. His avuncular manner, to the disgust of the weatherman is popular. Even the Chief Witch liked him.
