I find it utterly bizarre that a programme being broadcast in the
evening (1750-1830) is going out under the "NewsNight" branding, which arguably has distinctly "late night" connotations/associations to most viewers.
Assuming that the programme won't be simulcast on the NC (?), I presume it's a case of them utilising the only BBC Two-specific "news bulletin" brand that exists?
I suppose that at least we're now at a time of year when it will be (getting) dusky/dark(ish) at that hour of the day. Would be far odder for the dark NN studio & branding to be on-air during broad daylight hours.
EDIT: Now that I think about it a bit more, I'm guessing that it's also because it will have NN's "in-depth analysis" style/tone/format, rather than a "catch-all news bulletin" tone?
