Re: Wait and see

"My favourite example of this was from something that ITV used to show at post-pub-o'clock. Sadly that space is now taken up by some sort of tv-roulette-scumbaggery. The show was 'Tour of Dury'."

My example along those lines was the time [BBC|ITV] were showing the lunchtime as-live repeat of the (probably Japanese) F1 that had been on at around 5am, and had the programme announcer start with "And now another chance to see X win the (probably Japanese) grand prix"

Ok, technically it was a repeat and any real enthusiasts would have got up at unsocial-o-clock to watch it live, but nonetheless, anyone who had actually tuned in to watch the as-live showing probably still wouldn't want the end spoiled.
