Hazel Irvine. She was the BBC anchor for the Glasgow Games. She's also a well known comedian apparently.

Something a bit more positive: BBC Young musician is underway on BBC4 and is from the new Royal Birmingham Conservatoire's concert hall and then the final will be at Symphony Hall.

Bad news coming up?
Business News (North West) claiming Manchester is now the front runner for the Channel 4 move out of London.
Can't remember where I saw it but some Media guy was saying a few days ago that Manchester should expect more News Media output to arrive in Salford.

I wouldn't worry about it, it's just someone's opinion and nothing official, and it's nothing new or what we wouldn't know already. Surely they're frontrunners, but so are we.

Here you go:

Manchester is likely destination for broadcaster’s second home

Manchester is the frontrunner to become the home of Channel 4 new offices.

The broadcaster has been forcefully ‘encouraged’ by the Government to relocate out of London for some time.

And it has finally bowed to pressure and announced plans to open a ‘second national HQ’ in another city – while retaining its London offices in Victoria.

And with Manchester’s status as a centre for media and cutting-edge firms the city is already being tipped as the most likely destination.

The success MediaCity and the relocation of the BBC to the North West has put Manchester firmly on the media map.

And the property investment expert InvestorSquare says the media business may have been reluctant to make the move; but the decision is likely to aid Channel 4 in serving the entire country.

InvestorSquare founder Ross Kelly said: “Manchester is one of the hot favourite places to become host to C4’s new HQ, which will see at least 300 of the station’s 800 staff, and their families, relocate to the chosen city.

“Manchester is already experiencing a 7.53% average rental price growth as the city booms in confidence and this influx of talented professionals would further boost the thriving buy-to-let market.”

He added: “C4 is about to invite pitches from places across Britain, and Manchester is a strong contender.

“It has fast become one of the coolest UK cities to live in, with an enviable mix of culture, education and business.

“Of course, the city has always been home to successful media organisations such as Granada: home of ‘Corrie’ and Sherlock Holmes.

“Now, as well as ITV Granada, the BBC has moved in to MediaCity in Salford in a big way.”

Many of the BBC’s most popular TV and radio shows are now based in Manchester, and the city is now where a lot of the nation’s creative talent prefers to live.

Ross Kelly said: “Young professionals are attracted by the business and creative hubs, and of course provide attractive buy-to-let opportunities for investors.

“Channel 4 is going to be extremely tempted by the pool of talent and facilities already available in Media City.

“The breadth of properties available for letting will also doubtless be a strong factor in the city’s favour as the channel seeks to relocate key staff.”

On average Manchester buy-to-let properties give a 6.11% yield, with capital gains 7.58%.

IMO that's a completely made up article to be used to promote apartment sales in the city, nothing but spin.

Of course Salford will be in the running, that's a given, it would be negligent of C4 not to consider it, but it's early days and IIRC prospective locations need to submit bids to C4 first.

The theme is clearly "camp".

I'm loving it

Loads of dancers rehearsing in the square today, plus some huge camera rigs. Hope they get some footage today as the weather looks like it's going to spoil the party tomorrow.

The Council wants people to stay away from the City Centre tomorrow and watch it live on TV!

I can see their point, things designed for TV seldom translate to a live audience. Still, bearing in mind a few hundred idiots turned up at whats left of Centenary Square (in the rain) at New Year to watch Fireworks that they were told over and over weren't happening I won't be surprised if theres a large crowd of mooing onlookers.

At the end of the day, it will still be an impressive spectacle with that many people dancing en masse in the square.

Seems odd to actively discourage. Sure it won't look as good, but it will still be interesting.

App the opening ceremony was streamed online so I see no reason why the closing wouldn’t. It might be the BBC Sport site rather than IPlayer though.
