I seem to remember a loss of a cricket match on the BBC (obviously some time ago) and a slide coming up with Radio 4 commentary, which was handy as I didn't have a LW radio to hand at the time
I remember that too - it worked very well. Henry Blofeld was told that he was broadcasting to BBC One as well as LW listeners and it was good fun, and kept everyone up to date.
It just so happened that I'm one of these people who listen to 5Live commentary while watching the TV (especially when it's Barry Davies and Mark Bright - uggh).
They should really have broacast that feed on the tv, but I don't know how quickly they can do that, though I think everyone saw it coming...
Another thing, everytime we get a breakdown like this, I always get annoyed by the over long announcement that the feed is back and we can very happily now return... and isn't it great that everythings back to normal..and...and... Can we just get back to the scheduled programme please?
