The Curse of The River

The BBC continues its unfortunate run with outside broadcasts from the Thames. Three times in the build-up and during the women's race they crossed to Matthew Pinsent on a boat - and three times there was something like a contribution, but on the wrong channel and insufficiently amplified.

Then we got the director's talkback to Clare Balding going out on air during the Tolpolski tribute. To cap it all, unfortunate commentator Jonathan Legard indicated life was essentially at end for the Cambridge women, when Oxford pulled away from the start. A succession of strong women in the box with him patiently made it clear that the race itself was a significant event, and there was kudos to be had in taking part. Will he survive to next year ?
