Channel 4's 11th Hour DiCaprio documentary written about here failed to attract the viewers last night
It was somewhat embarrassingly beaten by Meerkat Manor on BBC2, which was watched by 1.3 million viewers, a share of 6% between 7.50pm and 8.15pm. Why are we surprised? Animal docs have always been big pullers havent they. Shame there wont be a planet for them to live on unless we wise up!
It was also beaten by the cricket highlights on Channel Five, which attracted 900,000 viewers and a 5% share between 7.15pm and 8pm, for coverage of England's third-dad fightback in the second test against New Zealand.This isnt surprising either is it? Its rare engalnd show some real grit on the sports field and they did and it was worth a look.
That said some 800,000 people did tune in and you know what thats 800,000 who are better informed and perhaps more tuned in to the serious threat we pose to the health of the world.
