The weather can be a great enemy of the sport. The Giro d'Italia has had these kind of problems in recent years, 2013 in particular. If the various aircraft can't go up, no signals can be transmitted...

I'm a massive fan of pro cycling but I'd admit that watching an entire stage is not for everyone. Throughout the season, it's not uncommon for only the last 30km of a race to be shown live, just as...

These days a show like 3-2-1 would end up on BBC4. Far too high brow for dumb Britain mainstream!

Or else the clues would be as simple as one of those ITV quiz questions you get in ad breaks.

STV's the kind of tv station you'd get in a cracker - cheap, tacky and instantly forgettable - and always seemed better when you were younger.

really enjoyed it, and as noted above if historians can't agree about what led to WWI starting, then how can a miniseries unless they filmed alternative versions?

Well if Speyside episode would not distil, luckily no such problems with episode 3 of the run.
