BBC News, Dorset

Watching the BBC live stream in Washington DC - the chatty live reporting and intermittent commentary by Emily Ford seemed rather uninformed and unresearched, ie "Did the Queen Mother visit Poundbury? I don't think there's a statue of  Princess Diana here... The Queen is doing her weekly shop in Waitrose", etc. Poor camera angles - disappointing shots, mostly of the crowd and other press photographers. Then no signal at a critical time!

Fortunately all was well for the speeches and the unveiling of the statue. The audio was audible.
