Low viewer turn-out for awards;In brief

23rd July 1999 at 01:00
THE TEACHING Awards televised by BBC1 on Sunday July 11 were watched by only 2.1 million people or 14 per cent of the total television audience. BBC1 would normally expect to attract 25 to 35 per cent of viewers at peak time on Sundays. A spokeswoman for the BBC said: "This is something different from a soap opera, where we would expect to get higher viewing figures. It is the type of programme that is only available on the BBC because we are a public service broadcaster."
