Cross-Broadcaster Disparity Update

It’s a bit of an eye-opener, this “watching two different channels at once” thing. While the BBC have cut to results from Putney…

image ITV seem to have already decided who’s won that one ages ago, and are concentrating on Kirkcaldy & Cowdenbeath…


While ITV presumably know what they’re doing, it does all feel a little bit like declaring that your team has won the FA Cup, because they’re 1-0 up with ten minutes to go.


And as we’re typing this, the BBC are showing the North Down results just as ITV are discussing those Putney results. And yes, we’re accounting for the buffering delay in all this.

FURTHER UPDATE 01:19AM:  ITV have cut to the Vale of Clwyd results, only the returning officer is reading the results out in Welsh. Cue mass confusion. It’s all a bit like that Mitchell & Webb sketch on ‘Padlockigami’.
