Channel faulty

  • Comment

Stirling coverage on Channel 4 was less than satisfactory.

Once again, the programme pretended to be live, when the event took place 24 hours earlier.

Instead of flattering to deceive, it deceived to flatter. There was no explanation as to why the five judges, who were never properly named or described, reached the conclusion they did. Instead, the presenter of the programme turned it into an ego trip of which the most publicity-minded architect would be proud. A rambling, incomprehensible account of how the Edward Cullinan gridshell was built was desperately in need of computer simulations which indeed exist.

But had they been shown, we would have had much less of the presenter on the screen.That would never do.
