Good amount on offer and I agree with Dave T how good to get the WCC stuff! All we need is for Aunty to remember we're not stuck on the M62 only their stereotypes are and we'll be on our way!  :devil:

I see the beeb have returned the Super league show to the graveyard shift Again!! Only in North will it get a slightly better timeslot, prefering repeats of 3rd rate antique shows or old cooking shows. Cheers BBC for nowt.

Why don't they sort this out?  We have a moan about this every season.

NFL managed to have a highlights show at 9am Saturday on C4, RU Prem has highlights 8pm on ITV4.

SL highlights Wednesday 12:20am BBC2......Thanks BBC & RFL!...

To maximise the opportunity for increased gates in The Championship, what is needed is more TV exposure. There is a distinct possibility of next week's crowd at Fev V Fax exceeding 3,000, but what are the odds of it getting a mention on Look North later that evening?

I would like to see a weekly TV Magazine/Results programme for the Championship. Clubs could send in clips from their DVDs to either BBC or Yorkshire and Granada TV and it would cost them very little to throw a show together, but it would do the game the world of good!

Who can remember the shows presented by Keith Macklin on a Saturday tea time back in the early sixties? The logistics of getting film reel back to the studios on time must have been a real nightmare. Is it just a coincidence that attendances fell after they took it off the air? It would be so easy to produce a programme in today's digital age, and there are so many channels it could go on!

There really aren't. 

 

The BBC have a ready made programme and they will only show it nationally at random crappy hours.

Seeing as the beeb have the red button and they put Pro 12 on it and Rugby league forums the BBC could make amends for the super league show timeslot by showing a weekly Championship match Live .

February - RL on the TV and in the newspapers consists of England's best player walking out on the game, with, astonishingly, the blessing and best wishes of the game. To paraphrase the ARL campaign, the small game just got smaller.
