Martin Maitland replied to earl richards's discussion Every Carnival season we complain about the results of the various competitions, This is what the late Maestro had to say about PANORAMA JUDGING in this'video from '76 Do you agree with him.
"No matter what we will always have this. As long as we have more than one band and strong loyalties to that band. This is not a Panorama phenomenon. Every competition in the world has a controversial outcome, some more obvious than others."
