    Seems the BBC think its worth taking all programs off BBC1 tonight to show pictures of nothing happening outside Buckingham Palace! I wouldn't mind but it's the sae shit they're showing on their 24hr news channel. I was actually looking forward to the scheduled program at 9. And whats scheduled for 10? More news.

    Thats 2hrs of "its a boy".

    You can relieve the boredom by following the live feed on the BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23413944

    Tracy from Brentwood emailed in!

    I suppose all this will keep going until a name is announced,

    Personally, I just cannot stand the inane way we devote endless amounts of TV time to this sort of non-news event, the bbc used to be decent really, but I can't help but feel its gone superbly downhill in quality over the last ten years now

    Me too. I can actually feel my brain cells slowly dying the more I watch of this drivel.

    The cover of today's Private Eye magazine sums it all up. What else is there to say?

    Mey husband end I, are delighted to announce the arrival of his fourth grandchild at 12:18 a.m. this morning. Welcome to young Henry. Well that's what ours is called, don't know what they are calling the Royal one yet. And yes, I know he's missed the silver commemoration coin by 18 minutes. Still, I expect there'll be one on ebay soon.

    I promise not to go on about it for hours... There are no photos, no interviews with strangers in the crowd, no pictures of the outside of the hospital and no Town Crier in silly costumes. No guns firing, no bells ringing, no quotes from Aunties, Grandparents, Great-grandparents. No notices on any easels etc. etc..

    The quotes on the BBC 'Have Your Say' are pure comedy gold...

    Please....just stop.

    New parents leave hospital smiling.
    The hospital cost 5,000 per night. The little toddler has had 2,000,000 spent on his new room. Neither will ever change a nappy. A private limo and entourage is waiting for them. All three will be lorded over from this day forth. The comfort the Windsor family enjoys continues to flourish.
    No wonder they're smiling.
    It's their fairytale, not ours.

    My respect for the BBC has hit rock bottom

    What a disappointment.
    After all the hype I was expecting it to have wings or a halo.
    Looks just like every other kid born

    Oh Mattx. Did you not see the silver spoon! That explains the weight of the baby, who actually was only 7lbs 6ozs. The other pound being the weight of the spoon.

    At 8:30, when I realised the program I wanted to watch wasn't going to be shown (I was periodically flicking back from BBC2 to check - learned a bit about Curry, nice), I actually went to BBC complaint's site and put in an official complaint. Can't remember what I put exactly but I did end with...

    Even the second coming wouldn't need 2hr's to announce his birth!

    Congratulations, but surely it's worth cutting and pasting your good news over 100 threads for the next couple of days - you, just in case one of our members misses it!
