    Ski Sunday returns this Sunday, but they’ve decided that the new "magazine format" was a bit too exciting so they’re going back to endless coverage of downhill racing.

    Much prefer to watch endless coverage of downhill racing than put up with some Toby or Jocasta banging on about Val d’Isere. Lifestyle stuff can be hidden awawy on the extreme channel or something. Watching 50-60% of each 3 minute run was the best bit.

    I think they’re split it from what I read on the BBC website, too many whingers complaining about the "junkets" and the reduced race coverage.

    There is another show on with the same two presenters from last year doing all the non race stuff.

    I really liked the new format. Ed Leigh snowboarding in Japan was really sweet and the whole show was much more interesting. But none of the old whingers seemed to notice that all the race coverage was still there via the Red Button.

    I used to be an avid watcher in the days of David Vine and Franz Klammer.

    I never liked the new magazine format and being in a non-digital area I had no red button coverage either.
    They tried to copy the sort of Top Gear format to a certain extent and it just didn’t work at all.

    Face it, we all just want to see some Austrian loon crashing down the mountain and being thrown around like a rag doll.

    MORE CRASHING!

    Thought the last season was excellent and I think the splitting into 2 could be even better as long as they don’t try to squeeze too much into too short a time slot.
