  • Comment number 1.

    How come the various BBC Radio performances get repeated ad nauseim for days on end, but on Freeview with sport if you miss it you miss out. The Football League Show is now only reshown overnight rather than through to noon (only a CBeebies quiz occupies the slot in the morning), while rolling highlights of the rugby are long gone.

    I appreciate that you can't keep everyone happy, but I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest at the weekends and other points where sport is prevalent on BBC TV that it should take priority over other recorded content.
