I am concerned as to the seeming excessive coverage of the 2012 Olympics, why does seemingly every current affairs programme have to mention The Olympics seemingly everyday I realise there's a modest interest in the Olympics a few Million people maybe out of 60 Odd million folks will have some degree of interest in it. But does every BBC show have to go on, and on an on, about it - it's worse than when the BBC was obsessed with the Millennium Dome and that was bad enough. It's not 2012 and even if it was I really don't want to know then either - it's no more interest to me than say Wimbledon or Ascot - but at least that's there and then gone in a modest period and easily ignored - but not The BBC's Olympic mania it's unavoidable it's all over BBC Breakfast, BBC News, Country File and so on now and there's months yet to go - there didn't seem to be any sensible break after the last ones before the BBC started being an Olympic bore over the forthcoming games.. It's tedious and boring to go on about a bunch of sports no one usually gives a flying squirrel about (aside from perhaps the athletics) and only get caught up in the hype -I feel the BBC should have the common decency to tone it down until it's at least 2012 - I can't be the only one being irked by it being so in your face so soon. And the BBC might want to put most of your coverage of the actual Olympics on BBC 2 and the red button so as to not drive the majority barking mad with fury at its over coverage disrupting the programming on the main channel to the exclusion of everything else. If they feel they can't restrain themselves then at least they should tone it down before and after then it's only a modest disruption to normal services when it's actually on I can simply switch off entirely during that period and go find something more productive to do. Personally I think when everything's gone 100% Digital in the not to distant future you need to hope for a BBC live / BBC Sport Channel it's fairer on everyone - I like F1 for example but even I was cringing at the disruption that was caused by it's overrunning the other week cancelling the following shows by the fist full while we sat and watched some rain for a Couple of Hours. A BBC sport channel would help compensate for over coverage of sports coverage for those who have little or no interest in a specific Sport and might even allow the excess of Sports news on various shows to drift off some place more useful. Perhaps it's a good idea to execute the demise of the broadly worthless TV channel BBC 3 and replace it with a sports channel and then the BBC can get rid of the unwatchable individuals like Chris Hollens to such a channel and tone down the huge and disproportionate amount of Sport coverage on the BBC news & BBC Breakfast too in the process. Sports fans should be happier to have a deeper coverage on a specialist channel and those who only find it extremely disruptive and annoying to the normal schedules will be much more pleased too if the BBC can spread it to other channels or tone it down a bit just before and just after the actual event in 2012. But it's only June and already I'm completely sick of the Olympics just because its in the UK does not mean they have to multiply the coverage level by a factor of 5 over the last one and start the coverage in such Ernest before it's even the year it takes place in. As it stands I get the impression people are sitting in production meetings just trying to figure out how they can shoehorn the Olympics into as many programmes as possible to as great a degree as possible. Personally I find this Vexing. Or am I just saying bah Humbug ?
