Did anyone just see that earlier? I mean I didn;t go myself but what I saw made me think it was brilliant but couldn't help feeling that the reporter was taking the piss a bit i.e. the bit about it being like a medieval village. I don't know if he is a regular on there, he might be but I thought he didn;t realy see the light at all, neither did the woman in the studio.

i saw it. never went to BGG myself but even through the patronising hosts (and some rather bad choices of inteviewees in my opinion) i still resolved to go next year

hmmm....saw a few film crews wandering around looking awkward....noticed one reporter using various large items in the craft fields etc as kind of props to lean on or pose with....the whole body language just screamed: im looking at a bunch of performing monkeys....im sure not everyone was like that but this one instance got to me quite a bit....:insane:

you got that message from the show too. Lots of "what can we learn from a buch of scruffy hippies?" type thing. It was still nice to see it get some recognition

I was there and did see camera peeps wandering round but didn't take muhc notice. If they want to look down their noses it's their loss right? We had a brilliant time!
