Did the BBC get Jubilee coverage wrong?


The Jubilee weekend is over but there is plenty of post-match analysis of the BBC's coverage of the event.

Gillian Reynolds, the Daily Telegraph's radio critic, says she felt "let down" by the BBC's coverage of the Thames River Pageant.

"I couldn't reconcile the beautiful framing of the shots with the words," she told the Today programme.

"I thought - someone's going to tell me what these boats are. And nobody did."

Mark Damazer, former controller of BBC Radio 4, said that the coverage was attempting to be "informal… inclusive and warm".

"The BBC just probably tried too hard," he said.
