Was never expecting to much today after C4 coverage since they took over from the BBC, but it just gets worse, surely missing the old team of presenters today. Always felt the BBC would build up the excitement and atmosphere up to the big race, but this could be any Saturday of the year if you didn't know the National was coming up.

I have an old vhs with a national and build up from about 20 years ago, Queens 'I want to break free' soundtrack was used when they where listing the latest odds. Everything about it was classes above what C4 have ever done.

Totally agree. I miss the enthusiasm from the old bunch. Willie, those 2 (incl. the fat one) with their fake 100.000 betting slips and all else. These could better present a church presentation or antique show zzzzzzz.

Any channel that employs Mike Fitz as a presenters is sadly deluded into what the general public would like to see and hear on their TV's.

plus the fact no one can actually watch it anymore abroad. Everyone in every country has BBC. No one has Channel 4 and it aint broadcasted anywhere on national tv. Since then all international attention for the race has been gone.

Alice would win a 'World Patronising championship' by a country mile.

Difficult to do a proper build up when they are cutting to ads every 5 minutes.

Lets hope the BBC never lose the open, regardless of what you think of Aliss.

It would be coming up the 18th with Woods tied for the lead so lets go to a break and see VC talking to that fooking imbecile about getting 2 bob on a 2's on chance.

Why are you not watching the Bolger debutante 'bolt in' at Gowran - on another channel?

More than just the National happening today.
