Dave, it's more likely that they can't afford the footage.

But they can afford the footage 0.5secs either side of impact? :lol:

Exactly. Cheapskate BBC :angry:

Thursday 10 June

7:55pm - 9:00pm, ITV4: How To Win The World Cup
Repeat of the absolute load of balls from the other day.


9:30pm - 10:30pm, BBC2: World Cup Kick Off Concert
Ridiculous opening ceremony thing with local acts like Freshlyground, the Parlotones and Vusi Mahlasela. More recognisable will be the international visitors to Orlando Stadium, including Black-Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys and Shakira. Somali-born singer K'naan will perform his song Wavin' Flag, which is the anthem for the whole tournament. Apparently.


9:00pm - 10:00pm, C4: Come Dine with Me: Footballers Special
After the creme brulee of last night's Wags edition, this is more like suet pudding. But it's worth watching for the less than stellar assortment of former England footballers - Neil "Razor" Ruddock, John Fashanu, Frank Worthington and Carlton Palmer - who take part. The results are as painful as you'd expect: lowlights include Ruddock answering the door dressed only in an apron and Worthington's back-to- basics attempt at vinaigrette. It's not for the faint-hearted.


9:00pm - 10:30pm, BBC4: Hero: The Bobby Moore Story
Documentary telling the story of Bobby Moore, who has passed into football legend as the captain who led England to its only World Cup victory in 1966. Together with highlights from his career, he is remembered here by his family, friends and fellow footballers. The skills and determination of the East End boy who went on to lift the World Cup are recalled by a host of greats including Pele, George Best, Jimmy Greaves, Denis Law, Bobby and Jack Charlton, Alan Ball, Geoff Hurst and David Beckham.


10:00pm - 10:30pm, Sky Sports 1: World Cup Report
News, talking points and analysis of the major World Cup issues from South Africa. Text your views to 84408 (texts cost 25p, plus standard SMS network charge).


10:35pm - 12:20am, ITV1: Sixty Six
It's 1966 and England is hosting the World Cup finals. It's also the year that 12-year-old Bernie celebrates his bar mitzvah. But guess what? The final match and Bernie's big celebration both fall on the same day. And, as England's hopes of taking the trophy rise, so the scale of Bernie's bar mitzvah falls. Suddenly, even close family concoct reasons to be stuck in front of the TV on the day that Bernie has looked foward to for years, and has planned down to the smallest detail. But at least the growing soccer mania leads to an improvement in Bernie's relationship with his rather distant father. Gregg Sulkin makes a likeable lead as Bernie and Eddie Marsan gives a solid performance as his dad, but the real revelation in this engaging coming-of-age comedy is Helena Bonham Carter, who's nicely cast as an ordinary wife and mother.


12:20am - 3:20am, BBC2: World Cup Kick Off Concert
The complete concert for those with brain damage.

That Sixty Six sounds appalling.

Quote from: Rotten Tomatoes
64%
Consensus: Likable but overly sentimental, Sixty Six has snatches of sharp dialogue but is ultimately too predicable.

Quote from: Guardian
** . . .
Despite the whimsical voice-over and gloopy, sentimental tone, it's a hard film to dislike and boasts a wonderfully lugubrious performance from Eddie Marsan as the round-shouldered schlub of a dad.

Roger Ebert has a good review here: http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080826/REVIEWS/808289986/1023.

Probably crap.

8:00pm - 9:00pm, ITV4: FIFA World Cup Greatest Moments
Matt Smith looks back at the World Cup's greatest ever moments, including England's victorious 1966 final against West Germany and Brazil's brilliant win over Italy in 1970. Journalists and pundits including Clive Tyldesley, Robbie Earle and David Pleat give their views.


10:00pm - 11:30pm, More4: True Stories: Albino United
Teams on away games often face a hostile home crowd, but none so blood-chilling as those braved by Albino United, Tanzanian footballers who all have the condition that affects skin pigmentation. In recent years, many albinos have been killed or maimed so that their body parts can be used by witchdoctors in potions and remedies. As World Cup fever sweeps Africa, Albino United head out from Dar es Salaam to tour dangerous territories around Tanzania. They hope to convince the crowds that attitudes towards albinism must change. "We have decided to show people we are humans," says one player. "We are not here to be sacrificed." This rough and ready film shows glimmers of heart in the darkness.


10:35pm - 11:05pm, BBC1: Panorama: Man United - into the Red
Red is the colour of Manchester United - but now it's as famous as the colour of the club's balance sheet. Thousands of its fans wear green and gold - a protest against American owners the Glazer family who, they say, have saddled the club with a growing mountain of debt. On the eve of the World Cup - and ahead of a possible bid for the club - John Sweeney explores the battle for the soul of United, the true scale of its debts and its ramifications for our national game.


Add any I've missed, leyk.

This programme reminded me how mint Zidane was for headbutting Materazzi. Should have done it in the face though tbf, bit less dangerous.

I liked it how they speculated that Materazzi told Zidane the ending of Lost;  not the only man getting worked up about the show it seems.  O0

I think Peep Show's Alan Johnson was based on John Fashanu.
"Elsewhere, at worst, modern commercial football could be seen as the mall rather than the circus; insidiously bland, decaffeinated and pre-packed, its relentless formulaic repetition an instrument for disabling consciousness rather than manipulating it."

It's been canny funny so far, typical bunch of lads. Fash' is a lunatic.

Ireland's bird was the nicest, followed by Heskey's then that bird from big brother. The last one was a turdmonger.

Come dine with me with Fashanu, Worthington, Ruddock and Carlton Palmer. It's f***ing amazing.

Frank Worthington just made a vinaigrette, cut an avocado in half and then accidentally just picked up the straight malt vinegar and filled the centre of the avocado with vinegar. Served it up, Ruddock's face was a treat. :lol:

I think I wrote a poem just like this song when I was 5.

Gonna be late
Put the beans on the plate
I think they're great
Whatcha mean you don't rate them?
