Ordinarily I'd post this in a BBC One thread, but, well, it would probably get lost at the moment.

BBC One South, South East, Oxfordshire and London have a special debate programme on Monday evening about the woes of Southern Trains, live (I think) from East Grinstead, and presented by Jo Coburn.

Surprised it's not also on BBC One East (West) as Southern also operate trains up to Milton Keynes.

However, those regions which are taking it were promoting the show before and after Christmas and it is live as they were asking for audience members on those regional bulletins.

EDIT: Recorded on Sunday for Monday tx.

You could equally argue it's of no interest in the Oxford sub region. I suspect, that for these sort of programmes, perhaps for operational reasons, the Beeb don't seem to split the dual regions, so Oxford carries it because So'ton are, and East-West won't because it's of only tiny interest to just a corner of the sub region ?

Anyway, 19:30hrs, too early, none of the affected commuters will be home by then !

It could be argued that the coverage of the BBC London area will cover the majority of the stations Southern cover up to Milton Keynes, such as Hemel Hempstead and Watford Junction. So really it may only be three stations which may have benefited from BBC One East (West) simulcasting, Leighton Buzzard, Bletchley and MK Central.

Central (South) Oxford
BBC South would probably argue that commuters in Oxford's tx area might be affected by the Southern problems because of rail links to Reading and Bletchley. It's possibly a bit tenuous, but Reading and MK stories are regularly covered by the sub opt because they're of interest and not outrageously un-local.

Historically Oxford has always taken BBC South opt out regional programmes, though it's completely possible not to and stay with the network. The regional series Sea City was shown pan regionally despite places like Banbury being about as far away from the sea as it's possible to get.

I can only recall one occasion where Oxford didn't take a BBC South programme, it was an Inside Out I think, which for reasons now I can't remember, had aired in the Oxford region but didn't air on Rowridge or Hannington. The next week, Oxford stayed with the network, opting only for the ident explaining that the London edition would be shown, while the South caught up. The South then opted on its own for an additional week to get the last of the series out.

I recall that for the first ep of Sea City, Southampton opted but Oxford accidentally remained with network. Don't think landlocked viewers were given a catch-up opportunity until the BBC2 repeats though.
