    Why do you insist on taking off our loved and regular programmes for sport. Not all of us like it, that includes the tennis. The BBC have given the slot of doctors to tennis over the next two weeks, some of us don't or are not able to go out and our programmes are our company , relaxation, and often our escape from the troubled realities of life and health problems. So why didn't you charter the tennis for another of your channels, and that would include other sports. After all they do take place every year at the same times, so it should be easy enough to plan ahead. And I know that the cast need time off, but as they don't all appear every week, then they could just be written as taking holidays in the programme.

    Tennis is the only sport I enjoy and I look forward to the two weeks of Wimbledon each year. I think it is the case that the BBC's other channels can't be used during the day because the frequency is needed for something else so that is why tennis is on BBC1 and 2.

    I do appreciate how you feel; I wasn't pleased by last year's Olympic coverage...to begin with. Then I got hooked and began to enjoy it. It's called making the best of a bad job.Try watching the tennis, the same may happen for you and you may find yourself getting caught up in the excitement of seeing the tournament progress.

    Yes, the main two that don't run during the day, BBC3 and 4, have their space used for CBBC and CBeebies respectively. BBC Alba has similar issues.

    I maight have mis read it, but doesn't next week's RT cover make reference to '10 additional channels' - presumably to carry tennis overspill?

    Besides which, TV schedules are ridden over, rough shod, for a couple of weeks every Christmas and New Year.

    We get 12 months' notice of that as well ...

    I like my sport but there is not that much on BBC these days. They only seem to have motor racing and tennis - both sports I loathe. Fantastic.

    Do hey still have that hard fought competition the Boat Race - that is a hard fought contest isn't it. Elite sport that the masses have to endure every year.

    Snooker, golf, darts, football? I don't enjoy watching any of those but I do like Wimbledon, F1 and the Boat Race. Judging by the crowds that line the banks of the Thames every year, plenty of people Do enjoy watching the Boat Race even if they didn't go to Oxbridge.

    BBC1 and 2 are in HD so that is presumably why they have introduced another HD stream on Freeview (Ch 303).

    Despite enjoying the tennis they should avoid messing up other channels with last minute schedule changes such as the one last Sunday. We are capable of turning over to BBC2 when they change ends.

    Sport will remain key to the output of BBC One, Radio 5 Live and 5 Live Sports Extra, as well as other mixed-genre channels.

    A broad range of sports will be featured, including the biggest events in the international calendar, major UK sports and niche and local sports with a loyal following.

    Output will be supported by independent quality journalism and expert analysis.

    bbc.co.uk will offer on-demand access to a greater choice of sports output than is available on linear television, particularly minority sports, while providing a platform for fans to engage in debate about their teams and passions. 



    It is part of the BBC remit to show "the biggest events in the international calendar" - that obviously includes Wimbledon Tennis.

    It was. The BBC managed to get an extra broadcast slot to enable the Olympics on BBC3 - but it was a special one off, we don't have that for the tennis. smiley - borg
