The Glass Box for Olympic Friday.

Post categories:

Eddie Mair | 10:49 UK time, Friday, 15 August 2008

Be your own radio critic! Tell us here, frankly, what you thought of tonight's programme. In the PM office we meet every night at 1800 in this Glass Box:


We talk about the content of the programme and try to give an honest assessment of what worked and what didn't...the things we missed and the places where our ambitions were not met. THIS virtual glass box you are looking at is where you are invited - indeed encouraged - to be your own critic. Comment on our hour by clicking on the comment link. Members of the production team will read the comments, and the editor should comment too. Click on The Glass Box link on the right of the page to read previous entries.

    RCM* : "Rubbish! we need 610 more midwives."

    ... could it be an NHS misprint?

    Usain wins, what a great day!

    It helps compensate for the slavery his ancestors suffered.

    (If Jesse Owens had taken drugs, I'd still give him the gold medal)

    Let's hope Paula runs well,...., but if she gets a medal there will be even more hunger in Ethiopian and Kenyan villages this Christmas,..., ('cos the athletes get more appearance money on the Grand Prix circuit, the higher up the field they come). All of which makes me wonder whether ordinary social activities (from racing to sunbathing) are truly possible in our Unequal Society.

    Hey, do you think the Chinese aren't at the Games, watching, 'cos they're hard at work in factories making our electronic goods?.

    If the Americans had to make their own, the audience, there, for the Games would vanish overnight. Daytime Games are strictly for the Leisure Classes (3rd and 4th generation, here).

    And it's the blog's birthday! There's an airdrop of trollbeads expected on the Beach at the end of the flypast. Please collect as many as you can and give them to the Moderators.

    Let's feast and drink in celebration, there, for as long as our stomachs can take it.
