Geographical bias? – Belgrade Eurovision 2008


I’ve updated my task from last year for Belgrade 2008 (Word 200 doc kb). I’m going to use the map of voting patterns from 2007 as a starter. There was also an interesting piece on the B.B.C. about the influence of population demographics on voting.

I thought the voting has a bit more open this year… but the songs weren’t as good. My personal favourite was Iceland. Still can’t believe that Andy received less points than Spain… pure madness.

    Latvian song, think I made tea at that point- different route to map skills.

    I think its time that did some form of group stage like during the European Championship, perhaps I’m taking it a little too serious.

    Glad you like it.
