A few technical hitches for Glorious Royal Wedding Live Online Coverage

As is often the case, I checked out the various offerings of live coverage online. Key resources for me on this occasion were the BBC, ITV, YouTube and CNN. At first the BBC coverage seemed the best, yet just when the wedding dress was about to be revealed, the BBC live stream crashed out.

I had been checking on YouTube and CNN also, and these suffered the occasional stutter, in fact YouTube was the most stuttery - even though it was re-streaming the main BBC broadcast. Suprisingly leaving ITV as the only one that managed a continuous quality broadcast.

The sun came out at just the right time, and the pomp and circumstance of the occasion have been magnificent. Even though a sort of republican at heart, I am still charmed by the precision and spectacle of such a ceremony. London and Britain can both be proud.

With so many natural disasters happening already this year, it’s nice to have a joyful celebratory event for the world to share. So far the organisation has been immaculate, and so suprising that the weather has been well behaved, as befits the occasion.

I almost avoided this event this year, but am glad I witnessed it, it’s really quite wonderful for everyone to have something positive to talk about at last.
