Bt Sport Coverage

I think the powers that be should approach the BBC as they seem to have some sort of connection

to BT (shared presenters etc) as the BBC have lost a lot of main stream sports as SKY have thrown

a ton of money at the football darts etc and the BBC cannot compete with the billions thrown at it

that's the reason BT are not paying much if anything for the speedway as the football they have got cost 2.4 billion

The BBC sport website is showing lots of low key sports and I feel they would jump at the chance if the price was right

and the coverage would be accessible to a much wider audience.

BBC won't touch it as no women in the sport

Wasn't it an Anglia TV production showing local motor sport with Steve Rider? I know he did "Midweek Sport Special" maybe it was that programme.

It was in the 70's and I remember a Panthers v Mildenhall meeting with the Hines brothers riding!!

I know I had them all recorded on VHS tapes. 

I think there were around 7 or 8 tracks operating in the region inc Bosotn and Milton Keynes.

The Speedway programme was shown on Thursday night on Anglia including a rider of the series It included Milton Keynes and Rye House although at he time could not be picked up on those two tracks 

as the signal was not strong enough. I remember giving Mick Hines some tracks which had him and his brother on them as he had no videos of them racing

The next programme Anglia tv did was called Wheels   which comprised Speedway , Truck Racing, Stock Car, Drag Racing

Don't know what happened tonight but it seems anyone who set it to record on Sky it didn't record, BT must have changed the programme information at last minute.

Looking at the British Final thread it seems it recorded with a SkyQ box but it didn't on my HD box.

I have Sky Q but the same happened to me. Set it to record a few days ago, when I checked before the meeting it had disappeared. It’s done this a few times, hence me checking. Also have to record the programme after as will cut off if meetings overrun. Very frustrating. 

Nearly missed a very entertaining meeting.

It recorded for me on my Sky+ HD Box, though it was a good job I'd checked my planner before leaving home.

I'd originally set it to record sometime over the weekend, but I checked the planner again for something else at about 5:30pm. Lo and behold it wasn't shown on the scheduled list, although the following programme was (set to record just incase the speedway over ran). So I set the British Final to record again and, as I said, it did record it ok.

Maybe, if people had set it to record a day or so ago, it 'disappeared' from their scheduled list, just like it had on mine?

When this happens they have normally changed the programme in some way like the title or time so the recording gets cancelled.

It's on at the moment on BT Sport 2, it started at 12.30 but like tonight it is the 2 hour condensed version.
