Victoria Derbyshire won't air on election day. Instead, Newsroom Live will start at 10:00 to 13:00 and simulcast on BBC Two throughout on 12 December.

Looks like the BBC and ITV both start their election results coverage from 21:55.


The BBC One schedule has Emily Maitlis from 9am-1pm under the Election 2019 banner.

BBC Two has the BBC1 daytime schedule from 09.45 until 1pm with Election 2019 from 2-6pm.

I know there are strict regulations on Election Day but can broadcasters say its Election Day, get out and vote and show the party leaders voting themselves?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

That is essentially all they do do

Thanks. I thought it was a complete blackout.

They will usually report that the polls have opened once they have, and will report party leaders voting with shots of them entering/leaving polling stations, then there's reports about unusual venues being used as polling stations and a selection of #dogsatpollingstations pictures, a bit of plugging for the results coverage, and that's about it until the polls close. There'll be a fair few reports that aren't time-specific prepared in recent days and weeks to fill the time although if memory serves me correctly last GE there was a lot of US politics news to cover anyway.

BBC's main coverage which will also be on BBC World News throughout. BBC World News schedules show special programming through to 22:00 on the 13th while the News Channel currently has a normal schedule showing at present but I expect it will be simulcast there also.

Clare Balding has the results as they happen, Matt Forde will run the Alternative News Desk and Rob Rinder is out and about assessing the mood on the ground. Throughout the night the presenters are joined by a mixture of political figures and satirists - including ex-Home Secretary Amber Rudd, former Labour Deputy Leader Tom Watson and comedians Tez Ilyas and Sophie Willan - adding a comedic slant to the analysis. Channel 4 News Political Editor Gary Gibbon will have his ear to the ground bringing breaking news and a team of correspondents will be stationed at the most important counts to assess exactly what is going on up and down the country.



Nothing for ITV showing in Digiguide yet.
Sky One will be simulcasting Sky News from 23:00 (following The Russell Howard Hour) through to 9:00.

To note, BBC Two's film on Election night is "I Give It a Year" Laughing

Have any of you guys seen any Pro-NHS campaign videos projected onto one of their hospitals recently during this campaign?

I did see one on Twitter recently.

The Today programme on Radio 4 is always an interesting listen on election day. They almost revel in not having to report on it.
