Heh. Even here, in the UK, where the BBC channels are commercial-free, we /very/
occasionally get overruns on sports events, although these are usually limited
to 'extra time' in football(soccer), which is predictable.
Of course, the programmers know all about these possible overruns, and usually
put throw-away repeats immediately after the sports events.
Guess that might not work for the Olympics next year. I'm /really/ not looking
forward to the resulting chaos.
 There was the famous case of the never-ending snooker final. I forget which
year, but it lasted /all day/ and finished about 01:30 the following morning.
Yup, we all watched it. I think they attempt to limit the final these days.
