Same details, but straight from the horse's mouth so to speak:
I'm very pleased I've run extra cables for a 2nd Sky box

Chuffin' Nora, are you thikin' they will 'ave a global block on the 'nt'net lads?

Excellent. I like the idea of split screen, that way you can see the onboards without having to move away from the main feed, and end up missing something!
I expect I may well spend my time flicking between the main feed and the split screen. I don't have two seperate TV's set up, unlike some
It's a pity they couldn't use BBCHD for this, fair enough the main feed is in SD, but you could use the resolution provided by HD to have a 4-way split screen without losing too much detail.

BBC HD have a policy of not showing non-HD content, something to do with preserving the brand. Compare and contrast with the amount of upscaled stuff on Channel4HD and the various Sky HD channels and I can sort of see their point.
The release from the BBC press office is making me drool with anticipation...
24th Feb 09, 13:04 #7This sounds good there will be an additional one-hour post-race analysis programme, immediately after the network programme goes off-air, on the Red Button.
This will gives viewers the opportunity to share their views on the race's main talking points and to ask questions of the presentation team, Humphrey, Coulthard and Jordan.

They also suggest that they won't be falling over themselves to interview "Lewis" the whole time too:
I'm ridiculously excited about this year, any chance of moving the Aus GP forward a couple of weeks?

Absolutely fantastic! Who said the Beeb wouldn't be able to provide value for for money? Auntie has raised the bar even further and possibly bettering Sky/soccer.
Can't wait for the new season to start
Only bad point is that I see no mention of Maurice Hamilton so hopefully he'll be still featuring in the podcasts.

Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

BBC Sports Editors' blog, it should answer all your questions but if it doesn't there's the opportunity of asking the team directly.

Split screen? So now you can watch two different advert brreaks on the same screen! Brilliant!
