Well at least we won't have to endure the makeshift studio in the exhibition hall with all the background noise this year.

According to RobBurley Politics Live will commence at 9am on BBC TWO tomorrow.





At the time I wrote that it was 11am, but I'm surprised that they axed the News at Nine


Yes I was thinking the same. Politics Live will have a two hour build up to the labour leader’s speech, seems a little excessive.


Ah Labour has moved the speech to 9am

Because of Bojo's Commons statement at 1230 (Starmer expected to be back in the chamber for that).

Katty Kay on the unnamed 9pm dual-header is back presenting from her basement - when questioned about it by Christian Fraser, she said she woke up with a sore throat and went for a Covid test today, and is back to working from home while waiting for a result. As she pointed out on air, we're probably going to see a lot more of this over the coming months.

PM to address the nation at 8pm tomorrow as well as Commons statement at 12:30pm.

Will likely bump Bake Off back a few minutes and perhaps give C4 a rare victory for something simulcast on BBC1.

Interesting. They didn’t even have a News Special for the initial lockdown announcement.

And this time, the details of what to expect are likely to be revealed in the Commons earlier in the day.

Could I ask where the best source for updated listings would be? I’ve tried the following but can’t find the ITV special anywhere.
