Q. Dear Oracle
As we all know, the BBC coverage of Glastonbury is truly appreciated by all us music fans out there who aren't lucky enough to actually be there, but looking on the programme listing page of the BBC Glastonbury site I get slightly worried. You see for U2 on the Friday night they are showing THE WHOLE of the set from 21.45 to whenever, swapping channels halfway through meaning we get to see everything. However it seems that Coldplay on the Satruday are only getting one scheduled programme "including highlights from the other stages" does this mean that we won't see the whole thing? It's the same story for Beyonce. Just wondering if you can shed some light on this...

Regards, Joe.


The Oracle replies:

Blimey Joe, you had me worried there for a minute. I'm watching the band's Glastonbury performance from home (the first time I will miss it ringside) and I'd be as gutted as you if it was highlights.
Fear not people, Anchorman has announced various TV and Radio transmissions so we can sit back, relax and enjoy the show away from the mud bath*.

*Word from the field is that it's pretty muddy right now so if you are going, take as much waterproof stuff as you can.
