    I don't see why tennis has to be on BBC 1 either, but as far as Sherlock is concerned I would be behind you 100% if it was a new series, but as it is a repeat I think it is a fair enough to keep a new programme over it.

    We have this fiasco every year with Wimbledon. I couldn't care less about tennis but I appreciate there are many others who do. If tennis is so important why not schedule it for BBC1 right from the start and leave normal programmes on BBC2. All this swapping around is very annoying and unnecessary

    Agreed Monty.

    I have no interest in the game at all. I played sport all my life but dislike tennis. I know there are people who love it as much as I loathe it so expect Wimbledon to take precedence for these 2 weeks.

    But then I guess you are going to say the same-why not just accept that the BBC is for all-that is most fair-minded individuals think

    It's a fact that more people watch the tennis when Andy's matches are transferred to BBC One.

    I was looking forward to watching Sherlock last night and was disappointed to find it was re-scheduled for next week. I agree , however, that a popular live event like Wimbledon should take precedence over a repeated program. The BBC would be greatly out of touch with the opinion of millions of viewers otherwise.

    I also agree that the channel hopping of the tennis causes unnecessary disruption to schedules. The natural solution is to put it on BBC 3 during prime time, as this is virtually a channel of repeats anyway.

This year again. Now I have totally no interest in sport at all. But I do object to the viewers who seem to think that their programmes shuld be on despite there being live sport on. And the programme we talking about is a bloody repeat for God sake. As for the person who suggest that the BBC should gave on on the tennis and let Sky run it I am completely stunned. The BBC has many faults but surely showing sport on a public service tv channel is not one of them.

    Well said Bounty. What a lot of fuss! It's only for two weeks for god's sake

    I love Wimbledon, and also the postponed programmes, but surely it's not too much to ask to be generous and stop whingeing.

    Mind you, it takes only the merest blip for the complainer's to rear their intolerable heads....put it down to being part of Wimbledon.

    The Wimby Whingers...........smiley - doh

    What annoys me about it is that every year the BBC schedules on a good drama, admittedly a repeat, to follow the scheduled tennis. People go out and set the recorder only to find that there was no drama and they've either got no programme at all or Wimbledon.

    Why oh why oh why don't they schedule rubbish programmes instead (yes I know they do schedule rubbish programmes at peak time anyway), which no-one will care about if it's cancelled. My suggestions would be 'Don't Scare the Hare' any recent 'Horizon', any quiz show with "celebrities" as contestants or anything with Bruce Forsyth in.

    The BBC holds the rights until 2017, after agreeing a three-year extension to its existing contract in 2011, it is considered to be one of the 'crown jewels' events protected for free-to-air television....and long may it stay that way!

    In that case why don't they put tennis on BBC1 right from the start and leave BBC2 to show normal programmes without disruption? All this channel hopping benefits no-one, especially anybody who is trying record a programme.
