Well, I'm not saying they can just sit on their arses and wait for something, but where are the viewers going to come from otherwise? People who are watching Breakfast aren't suddenly going to decide...

But this is why it has to be a certain type of news story, I don't mean by-elections or politics or anything like that, I mean a big human interest story. Something like Michael Jackson dying. A...

I think you've very much alone in that situation, I don't know why you'd switch off a match when Brazil were losing 5-0 and Germany looked like they were on for a record score. If it was 2-0 or...

Yes, for BBC Television. The six live semi-final commentators are Wolstenholme, Coleman, Motson, Davies, Mowbray and Wilson. I say it's five Cup Final commentators, it's actually six because Tommy...

If they were that desperate to avoid the World Cup they wouldn't have announced the actual fixtures during it. And surely Sky want to get them announced because at the moment they've nothing much...

If it was, I'd have linked to one where I was a bit wittier.

No chance, I'm saying, I'm sure everyone was dying to see how many more they were going to score. I know there's a chance it becomes unappealling when a team is cruising to victory without getting...

Given we've had Swansea vs Cardiff at 5.30 on a Saturday, you would think that any fixture could go in that slot, and we've had the Derby at 4pm on Sunday which hardly gives much less drinking time...

In the World Cup, but he did a live semi-final in Euro 2012 because the Beeb showed both. In fact I think that makes him only the sixth person ever to do a live semi-final for the Beeb in a major...

I'm not doing a whole team but I would have opted for Chiles to present the highlights shows, because I much preferred it when he did those as opposed to live games.
