Sky Sports share Formula 1 with the BBC

The BBC and Sky Sports will share the screening of Formula 1 from next year.

Sky will show all the races, qualifying sessions and practice sessions live, while the BBC will show half live and have highlights of the rest.

The BBC, which retains the radio rights for all Grand Prix, says the new deal will deliver significant savings.

Nick Higham reports.
