    At least the BBC has recognized the lieder prize after neglect since Bryn won it. I'm still thinking that the lieder prize would be better if it moved to Leeds http://www.leedslieder.org.uk/ and Cardiff was recognised as an opera competition only.

    My wife nd I have enoyed the broadcasts on BBC4 but I would have thought that with so many new chanels we could have been treated to the whole show each night.
    our TV sound ranges from 0 - 100 and we can usually watch at 35-40. But for these programmes we have had to turn up to 80-90. This probably distorts the sound and explains why we didn't appreciate some of the singers as much as the judges. Please rectify!
