I guess for the first time today released schedules (for w/c 4th April) will largely reflect most programme changes made due to the Coronavirus.

As for Neighbours being cut to twice a week - it hasn't been in Australia and indeed they are still filming, but following social distancing rules with no touching and wide shots which I suspect will look quite strange. Suspect when someone tries to edit it together the plug will be pulled, if it isn't forced upon them first.
Stay Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives.

I wouldn't be surprised if Channel 5 is forcing both Ten and Fremantle's hand since they're the ones paying the majority of the show's production costs. Fremantle has already suspending production on an upcoming Channel 5/Ten drama so it's odd Neighbours is still filming.

Jon Snow commentating on this was about as awkward as I felt standing at my front door clapping.

Someone has got a very sick sense of humour by scheduling the film Contagion on ITV2 this evening.

This is surely misreading the mood of the nation.

Friend of mine's watching it. Just described it to me via Facebook Messenger as, and I quote, "a genius bit of scheduling". Providing a level of topicality you seldom get in a film if nothing else.
Guess who's big in the back time.
