Alan Hansen vs High Definition = We All Lose

I've just started watching the BBC's High Definition coverage of the Liverpool – Arsenal FA Cup game. This is not libellous, merely a statement of what I see on the screen. Alan Hansen has quite bad dandruff. Today he is wearing a black striped suit which looks just fine in normal quality. However as I flicked over to the BBC's HD service, you can clearly see large chunk of dandruff on his right shoulder. Normally you would have thought on of the crew would have touched him up but this was the first FA Cup game broadcast in HD and the assumption is no-one new it would be visible. To be fair to Alan, the legendary player that he is, a lot of 'celebrities' are scared of HD broadcasts, especially live ones. It's enough to make you pity them isn't it?
