(July 2001)

Did anyone see the cock-up tonight on BB? I didn't actually see it, but a friend just told me that an SDI test signal was broadcast.

edited bit - Just had an update. Sounds like they had a synchronisation problem. Whenever they cut to a different source, the usual Digital green screen appeared.

Also every time they played one of the 'eye' stings it was interupted briefly by pink and green screens. Look liked digital breakup. The clips they showed were fine!

Was it here that someone said the results came onto the web before they were announced on Channel Four?

Well, it must be true, because on the website they reported that Amma's reaction to her eviction was to shout 'F****** hell' but this was blanked out on the Channel Four 'live' Broadcast.

As well as that there were problems on the stings which seemed strange because the clips were not affected!!

The live prog is always technically crap. The usually have problems with clips, or mics

Yeah, I said that the web feed was about 1 minute ahead of the live programme, which seems to be very true.

I'll be watching the repeat on E4 to see the problems Smile
