So there I was, flipping through channels and come across 3-Talk (promise - I don't normally watch it...think Noeleen is really bad at interviewing, especially with the international guests, but that's another story).
The guests were from SABC management, answering questions about SABC TV and its structures, programming etc. A viewer is on the phone askingquestions, one of which is "Why does SABC show F1 Grand Prix races late on a Sunday evening?" The answer from the Group Executive of Communications or something, is that this is due to the races being held in countries which are in different time zones and because SABC shows them live, they will sometimes be on late at night!! AFAIK, DSTV has the broadcast rights!
