So the Paralympics have begun. I have to say that so far I am not very impressed with the Channel 4 coverage. They spend so much time talking in the studio that they aren't showing half the swimming races. A Brit broke the world record. The studio team told us he had and then afew minutes later they showed the race. I feel they'd already rather given away the ending...
They have also shown some cycling and there was something wrong with the sound balance. When the commentator was talking during the race it made the roar of the crowd "pulse", which actually made my ear hurt!
And that programme that was in pre-9.30am was embarassingly toe-curling. That bloke who was one of the presenters was awful (I think he might normally present T4).
I would like to comment more on the sport, but they aren't showing very much of it. Come on Channel 4. You can do better than this. Show us more of the sport (and sort out your sound in the cycling)!
On a more amusing note, you might well have heard the tale of the Spanish lady who recently carried out a rather unfortunate restoration of a painting of Jesus. Well, now you can do your own. You know you want to...
