Professionalism and Jack Bauer
So the sports correspondent, Garry Richardson, is reading the sport on BBC Radio 4. He’s still on the top story – the cricket umpire Daryll Hair’s accusations of racial discrimination by the ICC – when his phone goes off..
Probably not the first time.
But not only does he have the CTU ringtone used by Jack Bauer, he answered it live on air to see if it was Daryll Hair.
Of course it wasn’t.
Brilliant. As my sports-geek friend Paddy said, it doesn’t do much for the reputation of sports journalists. But then it can’t get much lower, can it?

Drudge and 24
When the storyline of Fox’s hit TV show 24 makes the lead story on U.S. news website Drudge Report, you know it’s gonna be a good episode…
Episodes 3 and 4 are being broadcast in the U.S. tonight.

Jack's Back. And he's brutal.
Since the demise of The West Wing, nothing on television gets me going more than Fox’s 24.
Its fifth season picked up the Emmy Award for Best Drama and Best Actor – an incredible achievement for an action-based show up against more ‘serious’ dramas.
But its sixth season is going to be serious, sensational and utterly spectacular. A whole week ahead of its U.S. premiere I’ve seen the first two episodes (my girlfriend will kill me) and this is 24 as we’ve never seen it before.
The storyline’s going to be heavily controversial (remember the outrage of the Muslim community during Season 2?) and the first two episodes are shockingly graphic at points – (check out the OH MY GOD moment 60 seconds from the end of Episode 1). If previous seasons were rated 15, this one’s definitely for the strong-stomached adult.
But the rollercoaster ride is about three times faster than anything we’ve seen before. We get to see acres of Los Angeles in under two hours and there’s surprising new residents in the White House.
Jack goes from zero to superhero in under ninety minutes, and by 9am, Jack is sure-as-hell back.
This is going to be the longest twenty weeks of my life.
EDIT: Oh my freaking word. The next two episodes take this to a whole new level.

Ho ho ho – brillant!!!
Eddie Izzard is to play a villain in the new series of 24.
That is all.
EDIT: Sorry, that’s not all. Apparently the 400th episode of The Simpsons will be a 24 special, featuring Jack and Chloe’s voices and a real-time plot.
