...so, what time does Paul appear tonight?? 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I think this is the big problem. It's 6 hours and from hearing what some of the smaller acts are saying they're getting to perform 2-3 songs...it'll be a long night.

 

I think they also don't want to put time estimates because people will only tune in to see their favourite and then turn off again. If you're watching for 6 hours, you're more likely to donate than if you only watch 10 minutes.

It's actually eight hours, @AppleScruffJunior, a six-hour pre-show, which is what we have the listing for, followed by a two-hour main show. Paul is part of the two-hour main show.

American TV personalities Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon will host the main two-hour show, which will also feature Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Martin, Pharrell Williams, Rita Ora, Sam Smith, Elton John and Paul McCartney .

So, Paul's on during the last two hours, @vonbontee @Von Bontee, probably headlining.

^ Ah that makes sense, cheers RN.

 

Am enraged Conan is not one of the hosts- one of the few hosts who can actually do a funnier show alone than when he has his crew with him, Fallon couldn't present a primary school Sports Day trophy.

About when will that be starting?

I don't have any money anyway and I'm rather busy to sit through the whole thing, but I don't want to miss Macca (or Billie for that matter).

At the next hour @Beatlebug .

 

You're not alone in the Billie Eilish desire, all of the YouTube comments are "has Billie been on yet????".

 

Personally, I don't get 'her' thing, her voice annoys me.

Now that's where I'm getting conflict, the pre-show has been on for 4.5 hours, which would mean the concert isn't on until 1am but the Beeb is reporting that it starts at midnight.

It started at 2pm ET, @Beatlebug, which will mean the main show will run from 8-10pm ET. According to stream it started streaming four hours ago. UK time, the main show will start about 1am.

Eh, it's mostly a kind of "well, since she's on I'll see what she has to do" because I have vague positive sentiments toward her than rabid excitement. It's obviously Macca I'm here for.

Anyway, thanks all for cluing me in on the time. Dunno what I'd do without ye-all. john-lennon-salute_gif

Hadn't copped they used GMT, stupid measurement to use when we're on summer time.

 

Looking at who is on GMT right now:

 

  • Burkina Faso
  • The Gambia
  • Ghana
  • Guinea
  • Guinea-Bissau
  • Iceland
  • Ivory Coast
  • Liberia
  • Mali
  • Mauritania
  • Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic
  • Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha
  • Senegal
  • Sierra Leone
  • Togo

Quite a few former British colonies there but I don't know how often their immediate news source would be the UK version of the BBC.

GMT, also known as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), is the time all other times are based on, @AppleScruffJunior, and the BBC Website is international.

Boooo they should make it convenient for kids like me who can't read good!

 

Sure with the internet, technically everything is international 😉

 

 

Also speaking of the concert, Balance Ton Quoi, love this song.

I always seem to stumble on that "...Sings The Beatles" when flicking through channels late at night, it's a nice little programme.

'A Hard Day's Night ' and 'Imagine : The New York Years' are two of the programmes on BBC4 next Friday (9th October) from 8pm to celebrate John's 80th birthday.

On Saturday 10th October, starting at 12:30am, Sky Arts are showing the 1972 'Imagine ' film (not to be confused with the 1988 documentary), 'Lennon's Last Weekend' and 'Gimme Some Truth John Lennon '. Absolutely no idea why it starts 30 minutes after midnight so it's not on John's birthday but hey ho. Oasis are on instead. 

I'd presume the BBC4 programmes will be able to watch on the BBC iPlayer soon after they are broadcast. And in case folk don't know, Sky Arts is currently free-to-air so you don't need to pay for Sky to be able to watch, you just need to be able to get the channel.
