Glimpses of Michael Cole, Ben Brown and Jackie Rowley in that clip too.
Back to the post from Schwing: yes, you’re right. I now recall (after you mentioned it) a rather unkempt last few moments of the One O’clock bulletin. For the life of me, though, I don’t recall who the presenter was, Anna or otherwise, but I do recall something being wrong.
I wonder why Anna didn’t stay in the studio at the same seat/desk and continue with the Newsflash? Or, for logistical reasons at that time of the day, did another studio have to be used for the newsflash and no time for Anna Ford to get there, so Jennie Bond was put on air?
Either way, it was a surreal day in British Television history. As a news junkie like most of you here too, having one of the nations most popular newscasters gunned down outside her home was - somehow - too hard to take.
Although not as high profile as Jill Dando, but another BBC Newscaster was also shot dead in the same decade. Lynette Lithgow did lunchtime news and daytime summaries, as well as weekend bulletins. But I don’t recall her passing ever being covered by BBC News.
