BBC had a presenter (David Vine, David Icke, etc.) but didn't do 'punditry' as we know it now. That was probably an invention of Sky TV when they came along. There didn't used to be such a long gap between frames as there is now - probably for adverts.
Personally, I think summarisers and pundits shouldn't do it for decades, as we have now. It should really be an opportunity for recently retired players to transition out of playing. But the BBC like to have familiar faces and familiar voices. It's incredibly radical for them to have three
new commentators (Dave Farrar, Rob Walker and Joe Perry).
