TV sport - or should that be trosp VT ?


Recommended Posts

I was watching some sports round-up the other night on French TV (I must have been waiting for some other programme, as I am not known for my TV-sport-watching!), and it suddenly struck me as odd that:

All the tennis players seemed to be left-handed!
Every footballer appeared to have his shirt on inside out.
The slogans around the edges ot the pitch were all in mirror writing.

And then it dawned on me that French TV must systematically "flop" the images (something to do with a non-advertising policy, I imagine).  It does look funny!!

These were all recorded highlights.  I haven't watched any live sport, but presumably they don't do the same for that?
