I think it has it wrong again! Next Friday it reckons Fiona Bruce will be presenting, but it must surely be Sian Williams?

BTW, who presented Breakfast on News 24 this morning? Was it Bill and Sian or someone else?

Bill and Sian

It's not usually wrong. And it may be that Fiona Bruce is coming back - she will have been off two weeks so maybe she was having a break pre- giving birth. She'll now be six months pregnant and so could work for another month maybe. Wait and see if she is down for next weekend - next Radio Times out on Tuesday - and it may tell us more!

Also, Nick Witchell presented the Ten on Friday - that hasn't happened for a while. Wasn't Buerk down to do it? Surely George Alagiah could have stayed from the One - he often does - but maybe he had a life!!

I thought Nicholas Witchell was great on the Ten - he should be on more, perhaps make George a more regular presenter of the One and put Nick on the 10!

I hope it is Sian on Friday, she is great on it.

I agree, Sian is great on the Six o'clock news. I'd really like Justin Webb to present the One again. I think Peter Sissons is the best news presenter overall - his mannerisms are great.

BTW, did anyone see his clasp his hands together last week on the Ten. Today, whilst he was speaking to Sue Barker at Wimbledon, he folded his arms and scrunched himself up! I thought it looked quite funny.

Fiona does look a little more stunning than Sian though and she did go to the proper Oxford University not Oxford Polytechnic, like Sian did. However having said that I still prefer Sian.

Its pretty rare to see Nick Witchell on BBC News now. He use to regularly present bulletins but since they went corporate you are lucky to see him. You do generally see him on the Ten on Sunday.

I would say he should do more bulletins he's been there longer than Huw, Sian, Fiona or George.

I remember Justin Webb when he used to do Breakfast News when that was in the BBC News studio (1993ish) - he was good on that - give him a go on the News at One!!

I also thought that Nick suited the Ten really well, he should do that more often. Like Sissons and Buerk, he is an old face of BBC News and commands some of the authority needed for the Ten.

I want to see Bill do more on BBC One, but I don't think he's serious enough for the Six or the Ten, and I don't want him to go to the News at One 'cause I wouldn't see him! Keep him on breakfast!
