< The Grand Final of the Eurovision Young Musician of the Year will be broadcast tonight on the following channels: Albania / RTSH 1 Belgium / RTBF – La Trois Croatia / HRT – HTV 3 Czech Republic / Czech TV – CT Art Greece / ERT 2 Hungary / MTVA – M5 Malta / PBS Ltd. – TVM 2 Norway / NRK 2 Poland / TVP Kultura Russia / Russia Kultura Slovenia / RTV 1 UK / BBC 2 but only in Scotland (2000 BST)
New talent is clearly of no interest to BBC nationally. >
Exactly what I was saying - you can watch the final in Albania but not in England, Ireland or Wales.
A very poor show, should be on BBC FOUR, pull your digit out guys!!
Ironically I might be able to watch it tonight in Greece!
I missed the first performance due to the show starting half an hour earlier than scheduled. But it was a most interesting evening with some lovely music. I do recommend a listen and see if you agree with the judges. Personally I think they were duped and got it completely wrong but thought they might ... But I thought I did see a possible star of the future there.
I will try and write up my thoughts when time allows.
Of England's 326 local authorities, the 33 where people are least engaged with the arts (10% of the total with a combined 6 million people) have received £288m arts lottery funds since 1995 or £48 per head of population (php). The 33 areas with the highest levels of arts engagement (4.8 million people) have received £1.33bn over the same period – over £1bn more and at £275 php.
Arts lottery funding to the five largest London recipients (The Royal Opera House, Royal National Theatre, English National Opera, Sadler's Wells and the Southbank Centre) totals £315m since 1995. This is in addition to annual funding of over £80m that between them they receive from taxpayers.
I was listening to the news about it this morning. It would be easy for me to say just listen to the music and keep the politics out of it. However, I'm not a Jew and certainly do not have an understanding of what it must have been like to be caught up in the Holocaust. I can therefore see both sides of the argument.
