Seems that is still down to air in the early half of Christmas Week (up to next Wednesday.)

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000qty7

Scratch all of that-Monday-Wednesday next is down as a normal bulletin as Katty and Christian's 9:00pm bulletin is indeed on it's Christmas break for the next 2 weeks although Outside Source is still going on those 3 days.


That doesn't necessarily mean that Katty and Christian are presenting, on Wednesday it sounded as next week would be relief presenter. Wednesday it was like 'our last show together' until January. Normally it is replaced by World News Today, that has been the case with OS since 2015 and Katty/Christian since 2017, but listed as BBC News.

Do we know if NC & WN are simulcasting all day on Christmas and Boxing day as they are running the same schedules at TOTH?

I would have thought that's how they are always listed over Christmas.

We have a Saturday press conference this afternoon. Thoughts and prayers to Strictly viewers if the press conference keeps getting delayed again and again like last time.

No chance the BBC will schedule it anywhere near Strictly.

And let's hope they do it as soon as possible then as the Strictly final is due to start at 6:00pm.

ETA:Confrimed for 4:00pm.

I can see the headlines already: “Fans fuming as the BBC cancels Strictly”
The actual story: BBC One has moved Strictly to Sunday night due to the delay of the coronavirus press conference”

It's at 16:00, with the BBC News Special starting at 15:30.

It was delayed a few hours before because there was a leak Friday evening so the announcement couldn't wait until Monday so the preparation that was going to happen over the weekend and Monday morning happened in a few hours, don't think there's been a leak this time

Who'd be a scheduler today?
They'll need to find a 35 minute filler instead of Wreck-it Ralph, and then Final Score is due on at 16:30, which will probably be moved to BBC Two messing up the schedule there.

There are differences in Wales on both BBC One and BBC Two, just to complicate things. I guess Scotland will have to put Sportscene Results on the BBC Scotland channel.

Wreck-It Ralph started an hour early, with the repeat of Money for Nothing ditched, so they can make it to 3.30.

Appears they brought Wreck-it Ralph forwards to 13:55, except in Scotland where it is going out as planned followed by Sportscene Results and they are not taking the press conference on BBC One Scotland.
