I rarely bother to watch on BBC Two because I know at some point it will end before the session does and then I'll have to miss some action while waiting for the BBC Sport app to load. I don't watch...

I like the new graphic, and it only covers the floor, and is usually removed if a player is standing there. Now it's gone completely, but no longer needed, Selby already has this frame.

You don't have to be an employee at the BBC to be guest presenter on HIGNFY. I'm pretty sure Trevor McDonald was once a guest presenter and he certainly doesn't work for the BBC, and there are...

Not any more, BBC1+1 is planned to go on the HD mux PSB3. This mean of course only people with Freeview HD receivers will be able to see it despite being an SD channel.

I think the reason for that is given in the OP. I hope Suffolk is included, it's one of just a few BBC stations not available on DAB so it should be. When football is on FM is the only way of...

It surely would have made more sense for War and Peace to be on Radio 4 Extra? Everyone should now be able to get this station in some way even if they don't have DAB.

I don't do "Xmas", whatever that is, but I do do Christmas. Although there are some parts I don't bother with, such as sending cards or putting up decorations.
