Before now, you either had to zoom in and lose the top and bottom of the picture, or put up with a crushed images with bits missing at either side. No one in Spain adjusts their TV's, so you got used to seeing everyone unflatteringly fat. I'm told by put-that-remote-down-and-shut-up-about-it friends that I'm the only person in the whole of Spain ever to have complained.
Pictured is RTVE newsreader María Casado, Spain's answer to Joanna Lumley. Same voice, different language. Can you hear the difference?
|Before: crush to fit|
I wonder if the BBC would allow that outfit!
