And as the 25th has been and gone now, it seems a bit of an afterthought - would have made much more sense to run it pre-Olympics. Also I think you could have kept Olympic highlights running beyond 9am on Monday morning, plus there's things like Six Nations Highlights and The Super League Show you could air on Monday too.Also I'm getting a bit bored of these quizzes now - they were quite innovative when they began and useful fillers for the interactive streams, but now they're more lazy fillers and considering there is just one stream now on Freeview, I think what is used to fill the airtime when it's not used for extra live sport or other flagship interactive content should be put to better use.

Completely unacceptable.

I got exactly the reply I was expecting, but ironically though they pointed me to a couple of blogs here for further details, they did clarify what I suspect - for a complaint to be considered by the BBC they have to be made formally, and though of course the bloggers here do read them and I do believe understand where we're coming from, as they're not officially logged all complaints on blogs and 606 are basically ignored by those who really need to see them.And ridiculous that it looks like tonight we'll lose a couple of hours of Olympics coverage completely (as there's nothing on BBC2/3 either!) just for an EastEnders quiz!

The call handler admitted the BBC can be slow to update EPGs, and said sometimes set top box manuafacturers also can be slow in updating EPGs. He did not seem to understand that I was annoyed the BBC were showing a RADIO SHOW on the TELEVISION. The BBC doesn't seem to care about Freeview viewers at all.What exactly do they think they are playing at, apart from giving us all high blood pressure?!!

With space so limited, they should be bottom of the priorities on Freeview, and at the moment the Olympics should be top of the list.
