In Topic: £40 Million for Wimbledon

16 December 2014 - 07:37 PM

Watching "Breakfast" on BBC 1, I'd say it's hardly advert free. It's just that the movie makers, album makers, west end show biz etc don't actually pay.

 

Fair point, but the same kind of free publicity is on ITV and Sky too.

Wimbledon is on the protected list but the BBC is under serious pressure now and may want to save some money.

 

The BBC is under real threat and anyone who wants an advert free public service broadcaster needs to wake up.

 

What annoys me more is that the LTA have completely wasted this money over many years, failing miserably to make the sport more accessible and to generate elite winners (Murray doesn't count, he was trained in Barcelona)

Too busy watching BBC4 tonight; a documentary about another immigrant who received extensive treatment off the NHS.

 

Coming over here, taking our Nobel Peace prizes

I've seen Richard Thompson, John Smith and Jack Harris this year who were all very good.

 

My personal favourite man+guitar combo is Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze.


In Topic: 5K run on a treadmill

03 December 2014 - 10:32 PM

This year - Half Marathon PB, longest ever run (30K), 5 mile PB and most miles run in a year. parkrun PB as well as passing 50 parkruns. I got course bests at Dronfield 10K, Clowne Half and Worksop Half.

 

Next year I am running at least one marathon and hope to run 1000 miles in total and beat my 10 mile, 10K, 5 mile and 5K PBs
