    After the pre-show build up, the actual ceromony as such will only last 40 mins or so at the plateau but there's the Liverpool musical at the arena at the weekend - The greatest story ever told.

    The idea being that both the oldest peoples meeting place (the plataeu) and the newest (the arena) will feature.

    There were a flood of calls to the Roger Phillips phone-in yesterday bemoaning that we'd missed the boat with this not going out live, something about artists rights etc.

    However, Phil Redmond came on and gave a very detailed and satisfactory explaination as to why, by and large this wasn't happening though CBS are doing it, to do with the logistics and companies preferring an edited version with all the highlights and none of the waiting around bits. Apparently over 200 companies have applied for rights to screen parts of it which he said is for more than the likes of the world known F.A. Cup final.
