The BBC's 'live' coverage of Wimbledon, read the section on Henmans final set.

When Johnny Foreigner pays his licence fee he can have unbiased coverage :)

I never understand why some people want totally unbiased coverage. I dont want blinkerdness, but why cater for such a very small minority? If I was watching an event in America/Spain/Italy/Australia/wherever I'd have no problem at all with there being bias..if anything it adds to the spectacle.

To be honest I agree, I prefer it to have a bit more emotion to it.

What I like is a very nearly unbiased play by play guy, with a totally and completely biased color commentator. BBC's rugby coverage is a great example.

Oh god dont say that...if someone from the BBC reads this we'll get Ian Wright as a co-commentator.

Swift edit for clarity.
