On show

I dipped into two of BBC1's big Saturday entertainment offers last night.

The Voice ran for 1 hour and 17 minutes. The contestants sang their songs in less than 17 minutes. Contemporary tunes included This Ole House from 1954, Rescue Me from 1965, I Got The Music In Me from 1974, and Bad Case of Loving You from 1979. The banter between the judges would have made anybody else on the same bus move seats.

Earlier, The Getaway Car, ("a really fun, new adrenaline charged entertainment show" - Charlotte Moore), made crazy golf look inevitable as the next big BBC Sport commission. There are another nine episodes to come, which takes us to the end of March. Is there a chance that Lord Hall can persuade Charlotte to add something more uplifting, say, before we get the Charter Renewal White Paper ?
