Can anyone record the late bulletin tonight?

I've set my tellybox to record it for you. Very Happy

Late update passed with no mention at all. Not entirely surprising, given it’s not technically the last bulletin from the building.

I'm disappointed by the lack of at least a passing mention, as it's the final "standalone" bulletin (as opposed to being contained inside another programme, i.e. Breakfast) from Llandaff.

There should be a mention at 9:05am, gutted it won’t be as poignant just simply “ join us at 13:30 from our new home, bye”.

Seeing as the 09:05am regional bulletin slot is so short as to be virtually pointless, the time that it will take to mention a farewell to Llandaff won't leave time to read out any actual news/travel/weather! 😏

I’d keep an eye out for their coverage of the Welsh coronavirus briefing at 12:30 also. That will be their last bulletin from BH.

Twitter tells me that the 12:30 briefing will come from Central Square:

I'm pleased I didn't bother uploading it.

Its another Pebble Mill scenario. The actual studios are fine, purpose built and in nice surroundings. A refit would have sufficed but no there has to be another silly impractical office space with a few studios shoved in. A waste of money.


That's all well and good, but the building itself wasn't in great condition. Believe me, you wouldn't want to find yourself working in an office late at night with a storm raging outside, with the wind and rain rattling those old windows for all they were worth. It must have cost a bomb to heat the place too...energy efficient it certainly wasn't! That said, it will be missed by a lot of people who worked there.


You want to try Broadcasting House in Belfast. The windows are 80 years old, many can no longer be closed. I've witnessed it snowing in a corridor on more than one occasion.

What a terribly awkward close... just neck whatever was in his mug!

I don't like James Williams' habit of pointing at the camera.
