BBC And The Baftas

Can I just start by saying how much I love the Baftas?

A ceremony that celebrates the best of (mostly) British cinema is of course going to resonate with me.


The BBC and its stupid scheduling. Showing the ceremony two hours later and heavily edited. What a kick in the mouth to the many movie fans resident within the UK. Myself included.

How difficult is it really to show it live? I absolutely understand the need for a slight delay, rather like they do in the US.

In this age dominated by social media, all the awards have been spoiled. By the film industry itself, such an appalling situation.

I realise this post will go largely unread but I do hope that this time next year it’ll be pointless because the BBC got their act together.
