Thatcher funeral offers something for everyone

Only the Olympics was a more in demand live programme on iPlayer than the funeral of former PM Maggie Thatcher.

There were 986,000 requests for the programme, with most of them people watching the day’s events on a live stream.

Regardless of what anyone thinks of her there must be a reason for this popularity. Downtime thinks its appeal is down to it having something for everyone. A significant portion of the audience were enthralled by a state funeral while the rest wanted to make sure she was really dead.
