Great Britain 2009 - Schedule // A look ahead to our plans and the F1 times for Silverstone

Published by Christine

Williams at Silverstone

We were lucky enough to visit Silverstone for the British Grand Prix for the last two years, but for 2009, we are sitting it out. Instead of camping in the damp and cold, we'll be warm and dry in Sidepodcast Towers. Instead of being hunched over a Kangaroo TV, we'll have multi-cam, live timing, many commentary options and of course, nachos. There are pros and cons to every situation.

As usual, there are two schedules to be discussed. We've got the BBC coverage, which dictates when the live threads will start, usually about half an hour before the Beeb begin. The second order of play takes a look at the podcast schedule, but don't trust it because we never promise anything. All times are BST.

TV schedule

We'll be desperately trying to ignore all things Eddie Jordan shaped, so that normally means 5live for us. However, here are the TV timings.
