something staid and making it viral ,irreverent. Support existing audiences into a digitalworld by getting them to cover Crufts for you.
Increase reach by aggregration and harnessing the web (external UGC sites

  11. 17. Crufts audience? 4 days | 143,000 people | 24,640 dogs | 178 breeds | 32 countries
  12. 18. Current experience and coverage: TV coverage: Thursday evening - 60mins Friday evening - 60mins Saturday evening - 90mins Sunday evening - 120mins A live programme every day looks at that day's results, and highlights of the day's actions. These programmes contain a number of pre-shot short films from the NEC and around the country Interactive service also provided- contains extended highlights of the Group judging - on a loop.
  13. 19. Please, please, please give us more coverage of the dogs next year. For those of us who pay our licence fee but cannot get digital due to location it's incredibly frustrating. Crufts is a truely fantastic event for anyone who loves dogs. We managed to get to the show on Saturday (along with a million others!)and were able to get invaluable information on the breeds we've been considering. Information shouldn't just be at the hands of the people with red buttons. Abie Levick omg omg omg wow im goin crufts wid ma m8 megz n i cant wait iv neva been b4 but i bet it will be gr8 woo hoo yey lisa I wish someone could tell me the piece of music used tonight at about 8.25 to Ben's best clips of crufts.I would love to be able to but it. Corinne Welch “ We came because we've got dogs and we love dogs. There's nothing like Crufts. We've really enjoyed it. We're going back home happy.&quot; Once again the BBC has managed to surpass itself in ruining, what should have been, a reasonably straight forward programme to present. I honestly believe that this is the worse coverage of Crufts ever- and that is saying something. Ben Fogel may be a pleasant enough man, but as a presenter he does not even make first base. He is ill informed about dogs in general, and has not yet learned the art of reading someone elses bland knowledge on the autocue. Crufts is about DOGS. Yet more than half of the programme is taken up by talking heads. People who are truely interested in the dog scene, want to see the dogs, not hear the endless opinions coming from self-appointed experts. John English
