Thursday's second debate was always going to have a much smaller audience than the first, but what a shame it is that neither the BBC, nor ITV, nor Channel 4 will be showing it live on a terrestrial channel. It is only being shown live on Sky News and the BBC News Channel, almost guaranteeing that it will have an audience of maybe 1 or 2 million at the most. BBC2 is showing it "as live" at 11.30pm, but will be preceding it with analysis on Newsnight no doubt.
So come on, rescheduling a couple of programmes can't be that difficult. I am sure the second debate would get a higher audience than Watchdog will!
Sunder Katwala agrees.
