BBC grabs Potter TV rights
The BBC wins the rights to the terrestrial TV premiere of the first Harry Potter film but is criticised for the purchase.
On BBC Entertainment & News Is Free

Apparently the BBC shouldn’t buy film rights, because it could make films instead. Personally, I prefer films on the BBC, if only because of the gaping lack of the 10 O’Clock news in the middle of a movie premier. This may just be me.

For Americans and other aliens, ITV (Independant TeleVision, the commercially funded third channel that normally scores the big movie premiers) has a nasty habit of starting a film at nine O’Clock, then putting the news on at 10, followed by the film conclusion. Sick, isn’t it?
