    happens alot that the shows are pre recorded ? .... as a music form its lucky to be allowed a 2 hr slot ,... goes to show u how big the music is ... if they had millions n millions of listeners then the show would represent that ie different day earlier slot etc ..........

    the bbc are also a biznes and things have to reflect that ...

    BBC isn't a business it's a public service, businesses make profits...

    Fabio wouldn't be any better off on 1Xtra - a couple of years ago they moved Bailey from 8-10 Sunday night to his current slot, most D&B listeners tune in via the iPlayer so it doesn't really matter what time the show goes out

    @pantyinspector - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC paragraph 4

    TBH Im quite happy with the beeb's coverage of D&B although crissy criss should calm down a bit, he always sounds well hyper!

    cheers but its still a biznes ... not like say coca cola is but still within its own set out plan its a biznes without outside blantant advotising it uses public money that has no choice to pay the free if they wanted a tv ... capitalism at its best ... :D
