Scratching my head as to why the two Johnson ministerial broadcasts, which are standalone programmes, have been billed as "BBC News Special"
(followed by another "BBC News Special")
(23 March, also followed by another "BBC News Special")
when the last ministerial broadcast in the UK was billed as what it was:
here is what looks like something taken from a master tape, topped and tailed with a caption, which didn't happen on 23 March: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34kvEQfpwHo
Guess it's so long since anyone handled this kind of thing that nobody knows how to handle it or these things are made up on the hoof. Either way, it doesn't seem wise to slap the "BBC News" brand on it if you're trying to sell yourselves as honest/trustworthy, etc.
