Live Event Coverage

Can't possibly follow such a great RoC // It's a tight schedule, but the live streaming returns for all the latest news

Published by Christine

We're trying to shoehorn a podcast between the Race of Champions and Top Gear. It's never going to happen, mostly because we're so busy recovering from such an amazing RoC event. It's been brilliant watching and commenting with everyone, but now it's time to get down to business. We've got a podcast to record, with all of Max's ideas to cover.

We'll be live asap, so stay tuned to the comments to find out when. Notice that I'm not putting a time, because we'll only let you down!

Update: Ha. I joke that we can't possibly follow the RoC and it turns out that is very true. Live streaming went terribly wrong, and unfortunately we can't do a stream today. Enjoy Top Gear though!

Update 2: We have a problem here that may be tough to solve. We record podcasts on a Sunday evening, that's the way it's always been done and it suits us just fine. Top Gear also happens to broadcast on a Sunday evening, but seeing as neither of us watch it, it seems daft that we have to shoehorn a podcast around Clarkson's musings.

Technically there's only a couple of Top Gear episodes remaining in this series so it shouldn't be an issue, but there will be others, and lord only knows what the BBC are planning to do with F1 on a Sunday evening. The question is what to do about it?

I'm thinking that live shows need to go back to being less scheduled. They're on when they're on and if you happen to browse along and have no other pending engagements, by all means stick around. Trying to hit fixed targets with the equipment we have, and ensuring we're finished by 9pm is only asking for trouble. Thoughts?
