I get the logic behind having a separate bulletin but the execution just looked weird on screen with Mishal saying your watching BBC News followed by a trailer with no close and then a continuity announcement back into the news.
Indeed, it was very odd, and I assumed the news special had just included the weekend news. The generic “You’re watching BBC News” at the end didn’t help.
East Yorks and Lincs obviously assumed the same, although you’d assume the network let the regions know what is going on. Did they do the full 5 mins twice, or abandon the first one when they realised it was an error?
