It's up there for me, and since there have been over 100 views, 'tis working for a lot of other people. Perhaps it's not working for you because of your location, although since we're trying to reach as many people as possible I can't think why they'd have set it up like that.

Maybe you could enter 'Unitour Cambridge' into the search bar and see what happens.

For some reason, most of the first minute is silence, which as the visual says "the broadcast starts at 9:30, stay tuned" was a bit confusing! However, having forwarded it further on, I can hear it now. No visuals though.

Ah, I can explain. Presumably for simplicity's sake, the recording (and therefore, the live broadcast) was audio only. The first minute or so is not silent, as you might discover if you turned the volume up ridiculously; the conductors wanted to do their normal presentations to the audience, even though we couldn't see them, so they turned towards the microphones and introduced each piece as normal. I thought this was a lovely idea until I heard the recording later and found out that they hadn't been standing close enough to the microphones for them to have picked up their voices. Presumably the man doing the recording didn't want to disrupt a live broadcast by pointing this out, so they went ahead and introduced each piece (without doing their customary 'part two of the double act' gag when one twin handed over to the other, since, what with it being an audio only affair, nobody would be able to tell that they were twins or that they had swapped, because they sound the same). I don't know why these introductions weren't edited out of the final video, but I would guess that it would have taken too long, as the video needed to be up on youtube an hour or so after recording. The picture changes every so often, but not often enough to convince you that it's working during the quiet introductions to the pieces.

Dear all

I have enjoyed looking at the sites and blogs listed on this thread.

May I mention my site? It's this Wordpress site. Its most interesting pages are perhaps this one (with the more interesting stuff down towards the bottom of the page) and this one (which is about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).

^that's the link for the UniBrass live stream. My band (Cambridge) will be playing at around 10 am. We're going to be awesome. And we're going to beat Oxford, because they suck.

Just popped on to say that my blog has been deleted. I wouldn't want anyone to worry if they noticed, all is fine. :)

Thanks for letting us know Jivvi - I'd have been worried otherwise.

They suck SOOOOOOO MUCH!


Anyway, the performances have been prettied up* and it's been made easier to skip to individual performances. this is Cambridge's effort. I would also highly recommend listening to Queen's (Belfast), and to Warwick if you're just mad about puns. For some reason to sound quality isn't brilliant here, but the problem might be our speakers or the dreadful internet connection here in the village.


*by which I mean the bits that weren't broadcast live because the connection failed have been edited in so it all works

Also Nottingham. You MUST listen to Nottingham. I love Home of Legends (their opener).
