 EUROVISION SONG CONTEST
Because it is the highest-profile event distributed by the network, the Song Contest itself is often simply called "Eurovision" (especially in the United Kingdom, which transmits fewer Eurovision Network broadcasts than most continental countries).
Bizarrely, the UK's song was chosen after the date of the international final but the EBU adopted the idea of contacting the international juries by telephone and this was introduced in 1957 and used until 1993.
Even though the Junior Eurovision Song Contest was approved by the EBU, it hasn't been very successful, and has generally had unsatisfactory audience ratings, particularly in the United Kingdom, where from 2004 it was only shown on digital channel ITV2.

The voting patterns in the Eurovision Song Contest have attracted attention from various researchers, spawning a small cross-disciplinary field of what might be called 'eurovisiopsephology' incorporating insights from politics, sociology and computer science.
The pioneering study of the contest was carried out by Yair (1995) who used multidimensional social network analysis of the voting over the period 1975-1992, representing the period between the end of the Oil Crisis and the signing of the Treaty of Maastricht.

Daz’s love of Eurovision has endeared us to him, and it makes a refreshing change to see a UK representative being so enthusiastic about the contest after the apathetic competitors we’ve fielded recently, but if he does want to make an impact next year he’s going to have to come up with something completely different.
The dust has barely settled on this year’s Eurovision and already the voices of dissent are starting to make themselves heard – the ones complaining that the whole thing is political, that everybody simply votes for their neighbours and that it’s about time the whole thing was scrapped.
