I had to feel sorry for the North West Tonight team tonight. There's a major celebration in town and you want to capture it. You hire a helicopter and station outside broadcast units at every possible location. You've got an extended news bulletin and BBC News 24 are going to take your regional news programme and broadcast it nationwide.

And then Stuart Flinders's microphone fails as he opens the programme. Then the parade starts nearly an hour late, meaning he and Diane Oxberry have to fill endlessly. Then, just as the open-top bus finally gets going, they have to end the broadcast for EastEnders.

Oh well. A+ for effort! :-)
