Football Video: ITV executive chairman makes half-hearted apology over missed FA Cup goal

Posted by - February 6, 2009 - Everton, FA Cup, Football videos, Liverpool

Michael Grade rambles and contradicts

This is ITV executive chairman being interviewed by ITV News about the advertising cock-up that led to viewers missing Everton’s FA Cup goal against Liverpool. As you can imagine, it is quite a grilling…

Grade rambles on about it not being a human error, but then claims that a “manual override” had been needed to prevent the adverts showing at the scheduled times. Well, which is it, Michael?

Also, surely this sort of sports broadcast is the job for experienced media personnel rather than “boys and girls”?
