    during the footage today, im sure I heard one of the presenters say ‘******* Pervert’ it was when one race meeting was swapping over to another but obviously their mic was not turned off.

    anyone else hear it???

    I missed it but Alastair Down apologised to viewers at the end of the broadcast, not sure who the culprit was.

    I’m sure Julian Wilson said the F word on the BBC once when he was handing over to another presenter.

    My hearing is deteriorating but for what it is worth I thought it was Jim McGrath referring to someone as a "perverse tw*t".

    It was Jim McGrath saying perverse tw**.

    An apparent rarity but this the second time they have done it now with Francome being the culprit last time, think their someone who doesn’t like them.

    There’s **** all wrong with your hearing Lingfield, it was McGrath (talking to Francome) calling him a ‘perverse twat’, the ******* potty-mouthed *******.

    Did it trump Spittin Mick Easterby performance at last years Dante meeting on Channel 4.

    Nothing trumps saying the "c-word" twice in one sentence.

    Just a (non-swear) word of praise for their coverage this week.

    Much as I think he can be a pompous ass, I enjoyed Al’s interviews this week. BBC please note how Sheikh Mo and Paul Strothers can be talked to in an adult and incisive fashion.

    Also, the saddlers store features and particularly the mini-series with Lesley at the equine hospital were fascinating IMO.

    Nothing more than a bit of friendly banter between McGrath and Francombe.

    I don’t think Francombe can argue with being called a ‘Perverse t**t’.

    This isn’t the first time we’ve had naughty language live on the air. I remember in November when Paul Nichols was asked what he thought about people saying Kauto Star was past his best and he right away just said "well that’s just a load of bullsh*t". I was like :shock:

    And i could swear (no pun intended) that there is a huge F word heard just after Silver Birch won the National…?

    On Ladies’ Day at Newmarket, Alistair Down made me laugh out loud, when he said, after the camera had panned across a group of women in their finery, … some have taken the day off from haunting houses, but you can’t have everything.
