For anybody interested in behind the scenes stuff, I was lucky enough to watch Mike Bushell's live piece to camera this morning. I've put some images and a video up online.

As the upkeep of Overton comes out of my council tax, I'm alarmed that the van might have backed into that wall ! ?

What is the point of BBC Breakfast on a morning like this? I get that the rugby world cup final is the leading news event today but surely everyone in the country who is interested in it will be watching itv's rugby coverage rather than Breakfast? It seems daft for the BBC to be devoting 4 hours of Breakfast to the rugby world cup - and what compounds it is that the Breakfast presenters and sports presenter are clearly watching itv on their monitors during the programme.

For the very few who won't be watching the rugby, Breakfast should be providing a news service as an alternative - mentioning the rugby, sure, but not devoting hours after hours to it. It's essentially a 4 hour promo for itv. No wonder 0 people will be watching BBC One this morning.

It's a no-win situation though as ignoring it would make little sense. In addition with such a long build up on ITV many won't tune in till kick off at 9am so still a large potential audience to catch in their first 3 hours.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Fair point but from the very few viewing figures I've seen for weekend editions of Breakfast over the course of the rugby world cup, Breakfast has been decimated.

Surely all those bars and clubs up and down the land will be taking 5Live's coverage, with the MHEG caption on their big screens, not that rubbish vulgar <bbc 1950s patronising voice> commercial television broadcast TV that's full of adverts.

Seriously though, yes I agree Breakfast are being a touch OTT over it. Anyway we're off to the shops at 9, and our regular weekend coffee in John Lewis

War hero Harry Billinge stole the show today. His closing comment to Naga (β€œ darlin’ β€œ) was hilarious!

We owe our freedom to Gentlemen like him.

Nicely done, BBC.
