- United Kingdom
Currently the BBC only broadcast 'The Super League Show' in afternoon and evening slots across Northern England regions (North East & Cumbria, North West, Yorks & Lincs, Yorkshire). Whilst viewers in the Midlands, Southern England and Wales can only see it in the very early hours of the morning (usually between 12:00am and 4:00am).
We would like the programme to be broadcast in it's usual afternoon/evening schedule across the whole of England and Wales from 2012.
This is desired because there are now a large number of Rugby League fans living outside of the four Northern England regions mentioned above, as well as two professional clubs that currently play in the Super League competition. We believe that currently the BBC is not making the programme accessible to a broad audience and attempting to widen it's appeal*.
* Part of the BBC One remit.
We, the undersigned, call on the BBC to broadcast it's 'Super League Show' programme throughout the whole of England and Wales using the same schedule that the Northern England regions (North East & Cumbria, North West, Yorks & Lincs, Yorkshire) currently have, from the 2012 season onwards.
