Diamond Jubilee coverage draws millions of viewers
The Queen's Jubilee celebrations drew
millions of TV viewers amid some criticism of the BBC's coverage.
The most watched
event was the Diamond Jubilee concert, with an average of 14.7m viewers and
a peak of 17m.
That was higher than the Party At The Palace during
2002's Golden Jubilee, seen by an average of 12.5m viewers.
Sunday's Thames River pageant was
seen by 10.3m but some critics, including actor and broadcaster Stephen Fry,
called it "mind-numbingly tedious".
"This is eggier and cheesier than
a collapsed souffle," he wrote on Twitter. "Expected better of the Beeb."
Gillian Reynolds, the Daily
Telegraph's radio critic, told Radio 4's Today programme she felt "deeply
let down" by the lack of information given during the coverage.
couldn't reconcile the meticulous framing of the shots and beautiful photography
with the words coming out," she said.
"Nobody explained what Dunkirk was
and nobody explained that what these boats did was extraordinary."
Even the BBC's former Royal
Correspondent Michael Cole joined the criticism, saying the presenters were under-prepared.
"I think it's outrageous when you hear a person who's
been paid to be a commentator refer to Her Majesty The Queen
as Her Royal Highness," he said.
"No preparation, no homework. There was no gravitas. I
don't remember one memorable phrase or evocative expression."
