Death By A Thousand Cuts Part I
« on: December 21, 2015, 01:53:42 PM »
The BBC announced today it is <a href= "http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-35149963">cancelling it's coverage of Formula One Motor Racing from next season[/url].

A full explanation can be found on this BBC blog here.  The point is, they don't have the money to pay for it.  The comments are quite interesting, plenty of disenchantment unsurprisingly, people wondering why the Boat Race and London Marathon coverage continues plus plenty of other valid viewpoints.

Key to this I suspect is that it probably isn't a) cheap and b) with Channel 4 having stepped into the breach Ecclestone is doesn't need to hold the corporation to contract or sue the pants off them.
