Just enjoying the Australia v New Zealand rugby union international from Brisbane on Sky Sports. Getting to an exciting point, and the feed from Brisbane is lost. Colour bars and some numbers, and tone, before going back to the Sky studio in London. James Gemmell, the presenter, said "well, you've caught us out there, as we lost the feed there from Brisbane, sorry, but we're trying to get it back.". So, until they do, as I type, studio guests Michael Lynagh and Will Greenwood discussing what's happened so far.

Score at the loss of pictures, Australia 11-15 new Zealand. Both teams have had a red card.

EDIT: Pictures restored after 5 minutes, but the pictures have no graphics, as James Gemmell explained. Graphics restored on the Australian feed after two more minutes.

Is it probable that the feed without graphics is from a different back-up source?

Probably. There was a slight glitch when the graphics came back.

Sky Animation HD has been having an intermittent choppy sound issue during the ads before the next film which is a couple of minutes late starting so I’m not sure if they prolonged the ads to make sure they fixed the sound issue?

Two new finds right here.

A very short BBC1 breakdown during "The Chronicles of Narnia"



And a breakdown from Tyne Tees during Blind Date, where after an unearthly amount of black screen, we get a run down of the programmes for Saturday night, nothing was going smoothly, even for the CA!
