it was a nice idea, it certainly worked better than the bbc's stupid music live nonesense.
so you are saying that ITV, by going round 15+ or so regions to get the latest on the jubilee is better than the BBC's massive Jubilee 2002 and Music Live events. my god, i've never heard someone talk so much crap out of their arses.
the BBC won hands down yesterday. and as for people on this forum saying that the Jubilee 2002 and Music Live brands clashed, and that the BBC were using it as a publicity stunt, that is **** as well. the bit at the end of yesterday's concert where prince charles made a speech, the BBC allowed the other broadcasters to join up live then to broadcast the speech, they could have superimposed a BBC logo somewhere on that feed, but did they? NO. in fact I hardly saw the music live brand used at the concerts. note also how prince charles paid respect to the BBC for their work, but had nothing to say about other broadcasters.
don't get me wrong, ITV's coverage of the jubille has been good, but the BBC really have been superior. ITV could never have organised the 2 concerts in the palace, they just don't have the respect and ability that the BBC have. the BBC is known around the world, and it is likely that someone in the US would have heard of the BBC, through either watching BBC America, or BBC World News on the local PBS stations (a nice fact: the evening BBC World News simulcast on the local PBS station in New York regulaly gains more viewers than CNN) but would have never heard of ITV, Central, Granada, Carlton etc.
i wish people would just face facts and see that the BBC is superior to ITV in many ways, it has a much better respectibilty than ITV, more commitment. ITV has its times of superior coverege of events, but mostly its the BBC that rule, noted by the fact that 99.9% of the time, any event such as World Cup matches, this Jubileee, that is covered by the BBC and ITV, BBC always gains the most viewers.
