I haven't caught Saturday afternoons for a while. I notice from the website that Ian Payne is presenting, but it's not billed as 'Scores'. Is he doing a sport-led show or not these days?

Let's be clear, this information is from a fairly anonymous source on another forum. It's far from certain, and it could well be that ITV's Niall Sloane will sit down with the PDC and bash out a deal...

So did Sky not cover that series then? Or did Sky just take the Channel 9 commentary in 1991?

Add Henry Blofeld to that list. Blowers and Greig sound noticeably younger. Boycott sounds a little different, but he seems to have got most of the strength back into his voice these days. Following...

Sky are showing some action from the 1991 Ashes tour right now. So far I have heard the voices of Tony Greig, Geoffrey Boycott and, to my surprise, Richie Benaud. There's an Australian voice I can...

Watching Sky's coverage of the current Ashes series, they do a feature most lunchtimes where they look back at Ashes series from years gone by. There are voices I don't recognise from the archive...

Comparing the ITV4 audience figures with those BBC Two got four years ago is not fair.
BBC Two is a far more established channel and people are far more in the habit of tuning in to it.

Richie is still very much part of things with Channel 9, but he's retiring from commentary at the end of this series.
Part of Richie's talent is that he knows when to shut up. If he can't say...

He was always an individual, with haircuts that looked like a bird had pooed on his head. However, he's certainly taken his dress sense to more extremes since he came into the public eye.

I think you're reading too much into it. You might well have caught her at a busy moment or when she's had a lot on her mind.
