I was shocked to read on the Royal Marine Band Service website (http://www.royalmarinesbands.co.uk) that the BBC would not be showing the Royal Marine Bands Beating Retreat 2009 on Horse guards parade June 9-11th. Maybe never again, who knows? There is no explanation for this decision that i can find, not even a move to BBC4; they just binned it. This is just a little post to raise awareness of this as I can't be the only one who is both shocked and dissappointed about this inexplicable decision. I have complained to the BBc and would encourage concerned others to do so. Thankyou for your time and attention.
