    Default Ignorance

    I watched the Alan Carr TV quiz programmer with clebs last night.
    Question, "which European City hosted the Eurovision Sing Contest Finals in 2019".
    Answer," Tel Aviv".
    Last time I looked Tel Aviv and Is real were part of Asia.
    Why can't they get it right?
    Vic

    I believe the contest is named
    after the company rather than
    Europe. European Broadcasting
    Union (EBU)

    34 ASSOCIATES IN 21 COUNTRIES

    Associate membership of the EBU is open to broadcasting organisations or groups thereof from a member country of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) outside the European Broadcasting Area which provide a radio and/or television service with a major role in national broadcasting and whose membership is deemed useful for the EBU.

    Despite not being European, Australia have been participating in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2015, when they were invited to compete to celebrate the contest's 60th birthday. The official line is that Special Broadcasting Service (SBS), an Australian TV network, had broadcast the Contest for a number of years and the organisers EBU thought it might be nice to get them involved.

    So there you have it Vic, don't forget Earl's Court used to be the capital of Australia, which may be another reason why they can compete.

    I know about Ear's Court, that's the reason I avoided it and stayed in Hampshire for work back in the 60's. Not so many of us down there then, I think poor National Health got a shock when I arrived. I was used to going about my work with speed having trained at Royal Prince Alfred Hops. in Sydney, where you worked fast if you wanted to get home at all.
    I actually got asked to "slow down" at Southampton Hosp. as the patients were used to having to wait!!! LOL
