BBC Commonwealth Games 2014 coverage

From the BBC Blog
There will be daily coverage of the Commonwealth Games 2014 on BBC One, and Glasgow 2014 will be delivered seamlessly across mobile, tablet, desktop and connected TVs meaning audiences can get closer to the action, wherever they are.
As well as this, the BBC Breakfast team are moving from their Salford base to Pacific Quay for the duration of the games so their viewers will really feel part of the action.
The 2014 Commonwealth Games, Officially the XX Commonwealth Games, will be held in Glasgow
over 11 days of competition from 23 July to 3 August 2014.

I didn't even realise it was going to scotland so points for that too.
I must ask.. why is it that scotland is getting so many perks these days? - It's as if we're bending over backwards to please them. If they want to go their seperate ways and the politicians agree it then surely we should be looking out for our own in england?  Crazy
Not that I have anything against the scots, I just don't see why we should be giving them a lot of our industry when the odds are that they may go seperate. I see this becoming a lot of trouble.
thisoldman predicted scotland could become an issue years ago and that given our past it may lead to civil unrest again.

Commonwealth Games Scotland... Feel good factor..... Referendum
Shipyard workers... Portsmouth sacked... Clyde OK
Scotland leaves UK... Nuclear deterrent removal threat by DC
Many such instances, many not making headlines, undermining any possibility of a YES Vote in the Referendum, for Scotland to leave the UK
(From memory)

Yes you're right about that! I've been there a couple of times and I gotta say, the place is in many ways superior to england.

Re: BBC Commonwealth Games 2014 coverage

I hope the coverage from the BBC is better then last week's poor effort at the track cycling world cup.
Repeated picture & sound break up on both Friday & Saturday red button coverage which the BBC blamed on atmospheric conditions, it must be a real technical challenge to get a tv signal from MANCHESTER to broadcast around the rest of the UK in 2013  Roll eyes
