Top marks

Further to my last  post about the omni-present Clare Balding, I feel I should add that it should not be seen as criticism of the way the BBC covered the Commonwealth Games. I have never been the Corporation’s biggest fan, and I remain opposed to the principle of a global broadcasting tax on every household in the land, but there is no denying that they pull out all the stops when it comes to covering multi-sport events. From start to finish the coverage was the equal of that given to London 2012, and it will have done wonders for the image of Glasgow and Scotland in every continent and Commonwealth country. Even the sign-off after the sign-off got it absolutely right, with the incomparable Eddie Reader singing the full Burns Scots lyric of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ over the closing credits.
