After all the ballyhoo about Uncle Ken's new year fireworks display, we decided to stay in and curled up in front of BBC1 at 11:30 pm on new year's eve to see them, but never saw anything more than a few quick scenes lasting a total of about 5 seconds on tvs scattered around the studio, whilst a music show was taking place.

What did we do wrong ?

Sky News and BBC News 24 both carried the London Eye fireworks live and in full.

Charles - As the fireworks lasted only about 2.5 minutes, maybe you saw more of them than you thought....

James - what's a Freeview box? I don't have a telly at all at the moment, largely because, on a low income, I'm not prepared to spend over 2 a week on the licence fee when so much of the terrestrial (I think that's what it's called) TV seems to be soaps & so-called reality TV, both of which I hate. But if I could get Sky etc for zilch, I'd think again. Can you or someone please explain, in simple language for people wot don't know anything about TV? Thanks
