So I couldn't watch the Ride London "Classic" road race because I was in it; the sportive that is before it. After fighting through the remnant of a Hurricane I was a little bit tired. I caught the train home and of course didn't catch the BBC's liveish coverage on Sunday afternoon. No worries I can watch it later on the iplayer of course. But of course I have to go to work and cook and clean and keep up with other shows (Bake Off .) I did watch about an hour on my phone but most of that is a triple jumper talking to Sir Chris Boardman of all things.
Now my ancient laptop won't stream anything without crashing so I couldn't download, but that will be alright because I can come back to my phone and watch the race whilst I browse emails. BUT NO! The Ride London show has gone after just one week.
Why oh why are some shows up for a month whilst some are only on for a week. What is special about the rights to RL100? Who else is going to be watching it elsewhere? No one will be buying the dvd. It is a one shot thing why take it down. The Commonwealth RR is still up there weeks later taking up space and hours of squash, so why not RL100? And another thing SKY AT NIGHT is on once a month at unpredictable times but is still only up for a week. Why Terry, why?!
Sometimes I feel like I am just surrounded by disfunctional technology. Bring on the post-apocalypse.
