Has Jonathan Ross lost all his professional self respect? The BBC decision to make him record his Saturday morning show on Radio 2 rather than riosk broadcasting it live is nothing short of insulting. If he had any self respect he's tell them where to stick their proposal, but it seems as though he has meekly accepted it. But frankly, that's not the main issue.
Live broadcasting has a degree of 'edge' to it. The adrenalin flows just that little bit more quickly. It makes you up your performance. If you are ore recording and you make a small error the temptation is to do it all again. It's a bit like watching a football match that you have recorded rather than seeing it live.
