I would like to see an English version of the http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/videos/dakar/

Even though I can hardly understand a word they say I like the hour long shows with their studio panel with guests and their in the field reporting as well as the official ASO feed.

Either a TV show or a web show or a panel of experts radio show would be good. It is a matter of organising it all making it commercially viable though. But then again the rtve guys seem to do it OK.
I very seriously thought about doing a live "radio maray" type panel radio show. I think the technology exists to do it in a reasonable fashion. What I couldn't solve, though, is how to do that without gutting the live coverage here. I just can't focus on having a conversation (let alone facilitating a multi-participant roundtable) while scouring the web for updates and posting to the threads. I've had some skype chats with various F5'ers while coverage was running and it was challenging, so say the least.
