Yesterday's Canadian Grand Prix was delayed two hours owing to a red flag for rain. BBC ran the coverage overtime, dumping Antiques Roadshow in the process. AR fans were enraged. :D

Appalling.
On the other hand, that was the best F1 I've seen for ages.

I enjoy races run in the wet, but this was one of the best GPs I've watched in a long time.

" my Nan bought it at a car boot sale for 2 quid"
"Really... well, I suppose you'd be pleasantly surpwised to hear that I would confidently expect this wonderful little piece of aliceinwonderland china to sell for forty thousand pouwnds"
" oooer"
" So I would insurwe it for fifty thousand pouwnds if I were you"
" arrk"

AR is great! I love how they always tell you what it's actually worth and then add 50% to that for "insurance purposes." It's almost like the guy saying, "Hey, if you have to insure it, you might as well rip the buggers off!"
