  • Comment number 1.

    I am writing to complain that the David Walliams 24 Hour Game Show Marathon is not being shown on BBC Red Button. I appreciate that 5 x 30 minute highlights are being shown on BBC3, but this just isn't the same! The Red Button could show all of the 24 hours, and put details on the screen so people can donate during the show! Watching the marathon online just will not be the same - please BBC Red Button, do something last minute so the game show marathon can be on TV LIVE (or almost live depending on swearing) this weekend!

  • Comment number 2.

    I agreed with Chris - Ideal opportunity for the Red Button to be as useful as the BBC Sport Multiscreen. Come BBC 24 Hour Marathon on Comic Relief!

    PUT IN ON!
