First of all, thank goodness we are seeing the New Year celebrations this year. Last year there was too much tsunami coverage and not enough New Year. Of the ones that I saw only EuroNews managed to strike the right balance (by showing live coverage of midnight in the tsunami affected countries). Anyway, if you’re looking for a schedule:
1100 GMT: Auckland 1300 GMT: Sydney 1500 GMT: Tokyo 1600 GMT: Beijing 2100 GMT: Moscow 2200 GMT: Athens 2300 GMT: Berlin 0000 GMT: London 0500 GMT: New York 0800 GMT: Las Vegas
Yes, damn those bloody 250 00 people that died instead of us celebrating a pointless event that happens every 365 days. I’m sorry, but that is one of the most biggoted and insensitive posts I have ever read.
i agree with david hundreds of thousands of people died and a sad lowlife like you only wanted to see what fireworks all the other cities had on display. did you ever think hile you were looking for the new years ‘celebrations’ on 31st December 2004 thousands and thousands of people were battling for their lives. and anyway if you had a life then you wouldn’t need to watch the celebrations on tv because you would have your own!
