The Sport Thread

Not sure where BBC NI are sourcing this match from, it has it's own unique score box not a BBC Sport variant.


BBC NI have used these graphics for all their football coverage on the BBC NI Website for the last 2-3 years, although not sure why. For the Super Cup NI and Northern Ireland Youth and Women's team matches. See example below from youtube although not great quality.

They must be outsourcing all their online only content to this company. They seem to operate in the Republic too, with content for the GAA.

The Sport Thread

Looks like a 247.tv effort presumably being produced for the club which the BBC were allowed to take.

They seem to be the company who do coverage of most the lower tier events that appear on BBC Sport online and Free Sports.
As well as streaming for most of the major sport governing bodies.

The graphics seem very much like most of their productions.

It’s possible as a UK based company they’ve been commissioned by the Azerbaijanis to produce coverage of this match.

BBC News (UK) presentation - Reith launch onwards

There was a shot of Anthony Davis in the report:

Yes, I did notice that. It took me a few seconds to clock what show it was during the headline sequence. I still took a few seconds to confirm by cross referencing with an image from Google.

This must be one of the largest audiences the show has had. It must be pleasing to Anthony Davis that he is still bringing joy to pensioners up and down the land nearly two decades after this sleeper hit was launched.

Will this new found popularity lead to a commission of a new series? Will the gambling commission take issue with the return of the show?

Mods, feel free to split the discussion, if you deem it to have gone to far off topic.

Loose Women


Kate Garraway has anchored the show a few times, unsure why they don’t use her.

It clashes with her radio job.
Christine did both Lorraine and Loose Women today, must be the first time that's ever happened and during the summer.

I'm pretty sure Kate did it before.
Seperately back in the GMTV era she once did GMTV Newshour, Lorraine/ LK Today and This Morning in the one day.
Leading Phil to joke on This Morning that if she pushed herself more she could also fit in Loose Women and the Lunchtime News.

Kate has done it before Cando! She has sporadically guest presented over the years.

She last presented back in 2017 when she presented the show twice over the Summer Holidays and on the 30th November 2017 - filling in for Andrea McLean as she was getting married.

Ok not sure Cando wanted her life story.

BBC Newsline

On one hand, its nice to see some creativity with the NI weather, but if they were going to do something different, it'd be better if it was a BBC News virtual set, rather than that generic creation that looks like a default set you receive when you buy the software.

What they should have done is extended the set virtually but made it match so it looked like the same set and that would’ve looked alright.

The Sport Thread

There’s a Tweet suggestion that Premier have put in a revised bid, whether that’s right goodness knows. I’m inclined to think it’s too late for the Big Two to get involved as the logistics of getting things together now for a professional production would be very difficult given 4 days notice.

I’m not sure what you’re talking about because the most ‘the big two’ have to provide is a couple of commentators and a booth and they probably could just rely on a world feed.

I don’t think the ‘big two’ will get involved but logistics won’t be the issue. What’s a short term logistical issue compared to three years worth of rights?

New BBC Sport Football set

I think the set looked even better for Match of the Day and Match of the Day 2. I think I'm sold on it now.

I think this is going to come into it's own during the Euros when they'll almost certainly be based in Salford for the non-British isles games, but will be able to use cameras in venue cities and the stadiums for the background.
