Focus on Africa’s titles are good especially the music

The BBC World News schedule grid for winter 2020-21 has been published.

Main points:
- reduced schedule without branded daytime news programmes continue.
- morning schedule still uncertain, with gaps at 0630, 0730 and 0830 UK. Recently amended News Channel simulcast at 1000 UK remains.
- Due to the clock change, viewers in countries where daylight saving / Summer Time ends will see Focus on Africa an hour earlier as normal, with HARDtalk this year taking the current 1830 UK slot. (If you're reading this in a country without time changes, then Focus on Africa stays the same, but HARDtalk moves an hour earlier to 1830 GMT, is currently at 1930 GMT/2030 BST).
- A long edition of Sports Today launches at 2030 UK.
- BBC World News America: still only one edition, as now, no return to two back-to-back editions.
- The Papers simulcast at 2230 UK ends, to allow Asia Business Report and Sport Today to air (the current 2230 GMT/2330 BST editions). Viewers in countries where clocks don't change will see these two shows as now, every hour from 2230 GMT=0630 Singapore.
- Only one regional split remains: evening opt-outs in North America, avoiding all but the first and last editions of Asia Business Report and Sport Today.
- No extended Documentary/Factual slots at the weekend (e.g. of more than 30 minutes).

And of course, this all could change as the pandemic situations develops in different ways around the world:

It's surprising to see that World Business Report is not yet scheduled to return. I wonder if the weekday 21:00-22:00 GMT "BBC News" slot will continue to be the Katty & Christian programme.

But (from a News Channel pov) at the slightly earlier time of 8:00pm for 2 weeks whilst the clocks change over at the end of October/Beginning of November.

My Sky Q EPG already says that and it makes it sound very informal.

Shame to see The Papers go because of yet another Biz Asia/Sport combo. Rolling Eyes

It would be great to see the Papers return to Studio E - I get that the AR graphics aren't necessarily appropriate at the moment due to the video links however it just feels more appropriate coming from E - especially without that horrible washed out backdrop they use in C.

With the 22:30 no longer being simulcast and Newsnight out of the way, could a return to E be on the cards?

Technically not 'another' edition, it's the two editions shown at 2330 UK at the moment.

Now: 2230 GMT/2330 UK (BST),
after clock change: 2230 GMT/2230 UK (GMT)

In the past, BBC WN has split, with World News America (2nd edition) running at 2230 GMT in winter across most areas, with BBC WN Asia-Pacific diverging to show ABR/Sport. But since the current pandemic, there are fewer variations on BBC World News output around the world.


But (from a News Channel pov) at the slightly earlier time of 8:00pm for 2 weeks whilst the clocks change over at the end of October/Beginning of November.


Just the one week at the end of Daylight Saving - Sunday 25th October 2020 (UK change) - Sunday 1st November 2020 (US change)

I wonder if the BBC News with Katty & Christian is a 'holding name', should the Dems win would it go back to '100 Days' in January to May. Also 20th January is just over 100 Days (107) until the next UK (mid term) Elections with various elections taking place
