Looking at the motions on the order paper. The Brexit debates should begin at 12:30pm and is motioned to last 8 hours. You have to consider any emergency questions or minister statements that could push the business back an hour so then we are moving into later territory in terms of the actual vote.

If there are no statements or emergency questions then we are looking at around 8:30pm start of voting although this is most likely not going to be on the actual deal as it's probably going to be certain that amendments will be pushed to a vote and it's expected to be that either amendments A, I, K, B, F are pushed to a vote. So yeah the actual vote isn't likely until or after 10pm.

You have to wonder if Channel 4 will simply rip up their schedule for the night as the EPG info suggests that they will be covering the actual vote. As for BBC One and ITV, I think they will extend the 10pm news anyway whether the vote happens before or after 10pm. It'll be a certainly interesting night on Tuesday and the days after that on the presentation and presenting side anyway.

EDIT: Correction, the debate finishes at 7pm but never the less, still plenty of votes to get through.

That's not correct. On Tuesday the debate has to end at 7pm when the voting begins.

Ah thank you I do stand corrected on that. So around about 6 and a half hours of debate with votes on amendments after that which I expect to amount to quite a bit.

I'm willing to bet that JRM has never been anywhere as 'edgy' as Hackney Wick before.

I think it's fair to say we could have some serious disruption to Tuesday night's schedules. As I understand it, we will have the vote result way before 10pm, but with a defeat almost certain there'll be a lot of developments. I can see Kyle, TM and LW all getting pulled on Wednesday.

If they pull the final part of Mrs Wilson, my mother will be asking for a full refund of her free TV licence

On the radio side of things, 5 Live drive is being extended to 9pm to accommodate the Brexit vote.

It’s the Royal Variety Show on Tuesday, so I doubt there will be any changes on ITV at least.

The sensible thing to do would be schedule some extra promos which could be dropped to accommodate a newsflash, thus getting back to the NAT on time.

NAT is already scheduled for a late start at 22:05 on Tuesday so you can forget about it starting (or even more likely, finishing) on time.

It's a shame they don't have the ITV News Channel anymore.
Hello, good evening, and remain indoors.

It's unlikely the 8pm or 9pm programmes will be dropped on Tuesday night on either BBC One or ITV, they probably just extend the news at 10pm.
