The First is Second

After the ZDF (the “Second German Television”) which started to broadcast their news shows and more in 16:9 format at the beginning of this week, the ARD (“The First”) wants to follow suit on Sunday – even though just with the “Tagesschau” (the main news show), the “Tagesthemen” (late news magazine) shall follow one by one. Nice :)

(Let me mention the poll on the right sidebar in this blog again…) (This poll has been closed in the mean time.)

1.7777… > 1.3333…

So the ZDF is broadcasting (almost) everything in 16:9 since today – I like it :)

They just shouldn’t – even in the news – stretch old 4:3 archive footage to full width as they seemed to have done with African pictures in the main “heute” (=“today”) news show.

On the right hand side (belowabove the Search field), there‘s was a little poll.


…it took until at 1:55 CEST (0:55 local) John Higgins had become Snooker World Champion 2007. Congratulations! – also to Mark Selby who, after great championship matches, reached a 10:12 and 13:14 after a 4:12 deficit.

And thanks to Eurosport for how many live hours that were in the end…
