    Little coverage of the 200+ deaths in Nepal, Uttarahkund and Himachal Pradesh this week from a much heavier than normal monsoon.
    I death plus 499. I only picked up on the extreme monsoon as a holiday destination in a few months. Sierra Leone on the other hand I'd in the news daily.

      A serious question with no disrespect to anyone on the news that has died this week, however in order it appears:

      1) a much loved 89 year old man

      2)Two Children aged 7 & 3 in Barcelona

      3) 105 African kids in Sierra Leone.

      I'm not telling you who to be sad for I just think it's a "funny ol world"
      Those items are also in chronological reverse order. The news brings you the latest news first, so Brucie was 'new' news, whereas the next two items were updates, rather than news.

      On Southern Counties on Thursday the stuck crossing gate at Yapton got a mention before the 150 poor souls in Sierra Leone.

      RIP Yapton crossing gate.

      Bad enough on the radio. On a related theme (that of pre-allocating a timslot based on percived interest then desperately trying to fill it) R5 yesterday found a stream of English speakers who were living in Barcelona to intrview with the same qustions:

      "What did you see"
      "Well, I heard a commotion and there were pople running about, but I couldn't actually tell what was happening"
      "How did you feel"
      "Well, I couldn't rally tell what was happening, but its terrible isn't it"

      With the next interview almost identical. And the one after that. Then back to the studio and an interview with somone who had been in Barceona only last week....

      I'm not going to weight the tragedies, but the crassness of the formulaic reportage does make me a tad irritable. Generally I love R5, but not when it blocks off a time slot for in-depth hand-wringery. Unless Nicky Campbell is running the show - he does seem to know how to pitch these things.

      Anyway, sunny day and all that....

      Its 10.11 on the BBC National News and there has been no other story than Bruce Forsyth, thats nearly half of the time allocated for news being taken up by this one subject. BBc fail, again.
      Reckon this might well prove to be the WATERSHED in such ridiculously overblown tributes. Harks back to the days when we only had a couple of terrestrial channels to glue the nation to their couches on a Saturday night. Last of the great tap-dancing, catchphrase-spouting all-round fairly-mediocre general entertainers? Suspect there will be increasingly far fewer 'national treasure' tributes going forward. At least in the entertainment world. Royalty? Bit of a backlog building up there.

      Must agree with you on this and then throw in the self agrandisement by the BBC, as there were many references to themselves in the article, and we have the same old littany spouted out. Surely we are beyond this now.

      I sometimes wonder what the news people are smoking at the BBC. About a week after the Manchester bomb, they had nothing new to say (which had really been the case for several days) so decided to send someone to Dunblane to ask parents of the children killed there many years ago how they were coping. I would have thrown the radio across the room if it hadn't involved untangling the power cord from several others.
