My question is why should it be the Beeb anyway? Why can't Sky or ITN cover these great National Parades as lead broadcaster for a change?
Cop out answer? Any tv feature involving religion - as the Parade today arguably does - cannot be interrupted by advertisements. Neither ITN nor Sky would be willing to give up ~90minutes of their airtime without some form of revenue stream.
