My mate Jan. We were there since 8.00am this morning. And she froze on the river yesterday. And she'll be at St Pauls tomorrow. And she's not a well woman. Smile It was a fantastic atmosphere.

Yep, another proud Nikon user here too.... Wink

Gotta say that the Tweets from @Queen_Uk and @FrankieBoyle have made this evenings event hysterical.

Chezza's finished, Elton's lost it, Tom Jones HAS it and Macca is losing it. Grace has something (not quite sure what though...), Kylie delivered nothing, Annie Lennox was past her sell-by date and Rolf Harris now needs to be surgically removed from the Queen. Alfie Bow's got it, Madness didnae deserve it, the Royals didnae get it and we probably couldnae afford it - but it was a good way to pave the way for Gary B's knighthood!

Thank goodness for the one TRUE superstar. Take a bow Stevie Wonder...

We all have our little moans about Britain, (that's our 'uman right as Britons Grin ), but when it comes to putting on a big show no-one can beat us!
The final firework display was excellent, pity the BEEB overlayed the ending with the credits though.

Couldn't help but laugh this morning, some airhead bird interviewing a woman by the roadside said "where have you come from, and why have you come?"


Where do they find these people?

Quote:Where do they find these people?

I watched some live coverage of the flotilla of boats going down the Thames on TV and thought the BBC coverage was DIRE!! Banal, infantile and amateurish. I thought the spectacle of all those rowing boats/barges etc. was magnificent enough without some muppet of a BBC presenter asking what the crews of the rowing boats did if they wanted to go to the loo! Then they had John Serjeant wearing a silly hat and talking about......well just talking really.

Where do they find these people indeed.

Apart from that rant, I too am very proud to be a Brit.Smile

I too thought the BBC coverage was dire - they just cannot keep their mouths shut and let the images say it all. They think they have to talk a load of mumbo jumbo for which they know little about. ......... but yeah I too thought the occasion was great, a real credit to the Queen.

I'm only a mere 75, but if I had to do what the Queen did I'd have been knackered by tea-time.Grin

Yup the BBC coverage was terrible - all that money on presenters yet they couldn't afford a few lens cloths!
They seemed obsessed with jumping backwards and forwards through the procession so that the whole spectacle was destroyed.
they even managed to cut away brefly and miss a bit of the set piece at the national theatre.

They could have got away with 2 or 3 presenters but had daft things like John Barrowman on the bell boat instead.

Apart from Hugh Edwards who is excellent I think most of the presenters on all the programmes have been adequate at best. And absolutely dire at worst. What a shame. At least today's service is being covered well. This weekend is the worst presentation by the BBC I've ever seen, and I'm a great supporter.

Quote:The instruction had clearly gone out from on high that the audience would comprise imbeciles with a mental age of three and a 20-second attention span

Going by the quality of programmes on all channels maybe they were right?

The audience possibly thought that it was yet another inane quiz show? GrinGrinGrin Tongue

Watched it on Sky, and it was pretty good, apart from Kay Burley, whom I could cheerfully throttle...can't stand that woman. Still, I don't expect she speaks very highly of me either!Smile
