3 times in a fortnight! How did this happen?

Postby Chris » Wed Feb 15, 2012 1:36 pm

The Daily Mail (borrowing from the Daly Mirror) is carrying a story, about 68-year-old Pat Baker from Leytonstone, East London who recorded three BBC quiz shows last year - Pointless, Perfection, and Mastermind - and then, by chance, all three aired in the same fortnight. Apparently the original scheduling should have seen the shows go out in September '11, January '12 and then next month, but it didn't happen that way.

I've watched all three shows, and didn't notice she was on them all - there was a fella on The Chase and Pointless simultaneously earlier this month.

I'm sure the Mail would've had a field day with "Ian Bayley week" when he was on Brain of Britain, Mastermind and Only Connect, but that would've required the journos listening to Radio 4 and watching BBC 4...
