 Wales v Italy BBC Press release


Wales’s victory over Italy was a record night for television in Wales.

Although final viewing figures will not be available for some weeks, preliminary figures suggest that the audience peaked at over 500,000 viewers, the highest audience fo BBC2 Wales for six and a half years. That does not include tens of thousands more viewers who watched the Welsh language coverage on S4C or who followed the match elsewhere in the UK on BBC2W.

Not everyone in Wales was caught up in the excitement of the night, a grand total of 28 callers telephoned BBC Wales to complain that too much of the evening’s schedule was given over to football.
