A carcass on your hands

Wednesday, December 21, 2005 by

Typically the Media Guardian is making more of the news that Saturday morning programmes on BBC1 and 2 are swapping places than is strictly necessary.

It’s only a trial, only for three months (presumably until Da Bungalow finishes), and will probably do the ratings no harm at all. Indeed, it’d make perfect sense, if there were going to be more of those “events” to which the article refers demanding airtime on BBC1 on Saturdays. But there aren’t likely to be any between now and Easter, which kind of renders the experiment self-defeating. Why not try it during the summer when, as the article points out, the World Cup will be on?
