World cup TV coverage

It all seems quite disappointing. Can't find anything on British Eurosport
who normally show at least all from the S/F onwards. Does this mean that the
BBC as host have shut them out and can only be bothered to show 1hr45m on
Sat which doesn't even cover one/third of the finals?

Re: World cup TV coverage

As Henning has below, Eurosport are not showing live WCup coverage but are
doing highlights programmes this year - nothing to do with the BBC but
because of general programme policies. Drop them an email if you
disagree - might change editorial views.

Saturday's coverage at Eton may be a mixture of earlier finals and the
last few live, from the timing. Certainly English commentators David
Goldstrom and Hugh Matheson will be there. For the other World Cups they
will go to Paris to do commentary on the pre-recorded footage for the
Monday show, as I expect Rolf and the other Eurolanguage people will too.

Eurosport will have all the footage available, though, so if they have a
space in their programming may cut together a longer highlights show.
Note however that filming isn't always done until the finals at World Cups
- it is up to the host broadcaster and the host venue, and their
resources. There may be cameras on the lake during the semis, but that's
often them doing a dry run for the next day and providing instant footage
for the on-site commentators and journalists to see what's going on.

RQ.
