    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.

    Granada TV are showing highlights at 1045pm on Sunday, as well part of the arena concert. Sky News and BBC 24 are expected to show large chunks of it tonight according to todays Daily Post

    Callers to the phone-in today say that already the BBC are on site reporting it on the news, but sadly showed Shard Close, Crocky and mentioned the shootings again as the (dig in the ribs) as the caller called it.

    Also ABC and CBS are giving us a good go with a Ringo interview live from Liverpool.

    I may even be able to wangle my way into the student flats in the old hotel facing St. Georges - just waiting on a call

    Party time...........

    Every programme on BBC Radio 2 has mentioned the launch to-night, it has been very positive and there has been lots of Liverpool music. There has been mentions on the news as well.

    I put the times for Granada up last night under the "Film and Television" section. Just realised it's actually on BBC2. My eyes must be going.
