Ben Robertson continues to look through the results from the juries at Eurovision 2014. This week he looks at the issues of gender, age, and profession, to find out if these are significant factors in how they cast their votes.
For Episode Two of ‘Voting Insight’ we analyse the impact of running order in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
