Dumb it down and the drunks will come!

Advantages: Good show!
Disadvantages: Too many rule changes

...I held two joint World Records in the year of 1992. The first was being in the largest ever marathon field, 1990 in London, 32,987 on the start line, and the second was being part of worlds biggest ever cricket crowd, the 1992 World Cup Final between Engl ...

Review of Cricket World Cup: do you think it's been a successful tournament for the ICC?

A success for the ICC - A failure for true fans!

Advantages: Lined the pockets of the ICC.
Disadvantages: Lack of close matches. Possibly the last time we will see the minnows at a World Cup.

So as another cricket world cup ends, it’s time to reflect on the events of the past several weeks. We have learned that some things in world cricket don’t change – Australia still know how to win, you still have no idea what you are going to get from Wes ...

Review of Do programmes such as the X Factor have a positive or negative impact on the music industry?

Saturday Night Bieber!

Advantages: Everyone can be famous!
Disadvantages: But not for long

As famous as Justin Bieber is he doesn’t shift many records, his latest going in at number 14 in the U.K charts. That would never happen with Timberlake. So we can only presume Biebers appeal is to the youngest internet generation, content with YouTube or ...

Review of Do programmes such as the X Factor have a positive or negative impact on the music industry?

Cost Effective Conveyer Belt Talent!

Advantages: Brings new talent.
Disadvantages: Incites shouting down a microphone, telephone charges & short campaign careers.

As a musician and when it comes to watching musical based shows on TV, I was entertained lightly with British TV content such as “Top of the Pops,” other chart based shows and on the other side of the coin, classically based entertainment such “the sympho ...
