As pointed out in a letter to the Guardian, "[o]n the day a British writer is awarded the Nobel prize for literature ... BBC1's 10 O'clock News and BBC2's Newsnight do not consider it merits a mention. The BBC's extensive coverage of the parochial Booker prize is in stark contrast to its indifference to the globally significant Nobel."
