This evening's edition of Front Row, Radio 4's nightly arts review programme, comes from the BBC's new, purpose-built Edinburgh Festival 'pop-up' venue on the corner of Potterow and Marshall Street. We asked Front Row presenter John Wilson to talk to Caroline Raphael, Radio 4's Edinburgh Supremo, about the new venue, the highlights of the BBC's Edinburgh coverage and the history of the BBC's involvement with the festival.

    Well Steve, or is it
    You just cost me a drink. Well let's see how many blogs you can censor or close down then?

    How about just opening up our origional blog then.
    But you have just said that our comment are topcal. On Ben Gallops blog they were not topical enough.

    Make your mind up.

    There you have it folks, the BBC not censoring or deleting , (you call it Moderating) our blogs, they are as always being so open & fair. Sic!...lol.

    Please Steve, you are just like all the other soldiers who have committed a war crime, 'It was not me, its not my fault I was only obeying orders'.

    If you really think that this futile attempt will stop us, then you are very much mistaken. You have only made it worse.

    Thanks very much for your support. You have just won us another load of supporters, who were on the fence?
    You have maybe won this skirmish, but by no means the Battle or the War. Keep helping us like this & we will not need keep on blogging.

    I've removed a number of comments (from BNW and ProtestAgainstTheBBCIgnoringItsCritics) that were about the changes to the BBC's F1 coverage because they were off-topic. Everyone here appreciates the strength of feeling on this topic but I'm concerned with the usefulness and integrity of this blog so I'll keep removing off-topic comments.

    Obviously we have hit a raw nerve. Mein Furher, (sorry Steve Bowbrick), doesn’t like us. I've got news for him the feeling is mutual.
    Let’s keep posting to every new blog, that we feel needs our attention. If you find any good blogs, post them onto us.
    They will have to keep closing them down.
    All we want is the F1 blog to re-open and get our questions answered.
    See copies of post from Peter Salmons blog, from ' A fond farewell to Waterloo Road'.
    We may not win, but we can pee them off.

    Morning all, Thanks for your comments. I've removed quite a lot of them because they're mostly about F1 and thus wildly off-topic. I appreciate the strength of feeling on the subject but I don't think there's much that we can add here, on this post about drama produced in the North, to a debate that's already attracted over 10,000 comments on relevant posts elsewhere. I'll remove further F1 posts from now on and close the post if necessary.

    Thanks Steve, I hope you are aware that Peter Salmon is the boss of the BBC Sports head, and as such this protest is appropriately placed. Please close this blog until the BBC executive comes to us with the answers we asked for. And no, do not silence us by referring us to a flawed complaints system.

    No censorship here, GrassRootsF1Fan. I'm concerned only with the usefulness of this blog post. It's not about F1 so I don't want F1 comments here. I'm closing this post to further comments now.
