Thread Name: Sidmouth on BBC Four
Subject: RE: Sidmouth on BBC Four
What a load of bollox. Seemed to be more about BBC cameraman getting arty shots of people in aqua blue trainers, feeding ice cream to their dogs and lolling about on the beach . It was more like 'Wish You Were Here'. I expected Judith Chalmers to appear any minute any minute and take part in Morris dancing.
I appreciate they were trying to show the Sidmouths diversity, but where was the music. Eliza, looking like a refugee from eastern europe, playing on the patio of an Old Folks Home, drowning her vocals with a melodian didnt do it for me. Nor did KR singing with a brass band. I was reminded of Peter Skellern.
Perhaps I missed the point, but coverage of Cambridge FF wasnt brilliant either.
BBC.......Nil Point!
