My mistake then . The TV in this household is on most the day although I very rarely watch it I can hear what's on the news .I was being ironic. His sentencing was well covered on the BBC, but not by other media outlets, however his conviction, on 20 October. was widely publicised at the time by multiple news outlets, including on BBC radio and TV. So why do you say "but nothing on [BBC] TV of course"?
I had not seen or heard anything about this on TV and asked the wife who normally spends her time shouting at the telly if she had seen anything and the answer was in the negative .
Somehow must have missed it .
