One is not to be in 3D

Ah, it would have been so gloriously silly, but it's not to be. News reaches us from Buckingham Palace that, sadly, the royal wedding is not to be broadcast in 3D.

Sources at the BBC and ITV had said 3D broadcasts were a definitely possibility. But now word comes that it's definitely not happening. 'I'm afraid I have to say that we have decided not to progress with 3D coverage of the service on this occasion," said Prince Charles' press secretary.

The sticking point, apparently, is the size of the 3D cameras, or as Charles' boy put it, the 'additional camera footprint.' 3D cameras are still a chunk bigger than regular TV cameras, which are already pretty chunky. Given the number of different TV channels worldwide that will want footage, it would have got a bit ridiculous.

If we're lucky, if William and Kate give into their family history of sex scandals, the paparazzi-filmed gotcha footage will be in 3D instead...
