The late news is 23:45-00:05 tonight I wonder what the point is in actually having a bulletin that late is. surely when it gets that late People just turn off as soon as the movie is finished.
I guess it's a tough call really as the previous junction was at 21:10 which would be early for the late bulletin these days and would also kill the lead in from The Voice into the film. Or they could interrupt the film for the news somewhere around 22:30 but that would annoy those watching the film. I guess it's no win for them which is probably why they've scheduled it at 23:45. Like you say, though, at that late time it's hardly worth it. I just feel sorry for the production staff at ITN who will have had to hang around until after midnight tonight.
I wonder what they would have done with this situation in the 1990s? I do seem to recall the news would sometimes interrupt the late film. Can't remember if that was more of a BBC thing though. Can anyone remember?
I do recall the late ITN News sometimes being on at about 20:50 in the 1990s which does seem ridiculously early. From the sublime to the ridiculous!
