I know I going to sound dumb but is BBC Two (Network) in Scotland broadcasting at the same time as BBC Scotland in the afternoon even though they have similar schedules? If so where is this air time coming from? I am a little confused. Thanks in advance.

Yes, Scotland now gets the same BBC Two as England.... and ALSO the new BBC Scotland channel. So in the afternoon, most afternoons there will be the same programmes on two channels


As for the airtime: On terrestrial its been created by squeezing it in to the existing SD multiplex of channels broadcast to Scotland, and by using the space once used by BBC Three HD. On satellite it replaces BBC Two Scotland which no longer exists.

Just as the post that I mentioned this before is now closed (https://tvforum.uk/forums/post1111869#post-1111869) I though I'd post on here.

I've stumbled across a clip of RTE's Network 2 from 2000 where it seems they have reused/stolen/taken Channel 4's racing titles for their own.



Did RTÉ generally use the Channel 4 Racing theme for their own racing coverage?

Here's a pretty interesting bit of presentation -- a 1980s FCC license renewal announcement from WWOR in New York (Secaucus, New Jersey):

Samira Ahmed is anchoring the Victoria Derbyshire Show tomorrow.

I wonder what Newswatch viewers will say... Wink

So another Victoria stand in to add to the list. Joanna Gosling, Chloe Tilley, Tina Daheley, Jane Hill, Julian Worricker, Norman Smith, Matthew Price, Naga Munchetty, Riz Lateef, Reeta Chakrabarti, Martine Croxall, Matt Barbet. Is there any more?


Aaron Heslehurst.

I’m sure Victoria is prepping for her relaunch on Monday.

She is recording the ITV charity programme "The Real Full Monty" this week in aid of Cancer charities.
