BBC Network news - no longer relevant for the nations?


If you want news to be nothing but about your area, I suggest you try this channel called “BBC One” at 18:30 every day.

March-May was pretty much the same in terms of lockdown measures it has only been recently when devolved administrations have decided to take a different path into what they feel is best.


I haven't seen anyone in this thread say that they want news to be nothing but their area. In fact the opposite is the case. People have been arguing out that so called "National news" (which claims to cover the whole of the UK) could do better at representing news from across the UK. Suggesting that we try BBC One is 1830 is rather patronising.

You're right that lockdown measures have been broadly similar, but the timings and implementations have varied considerably across the four nations (and indeed the Isle of Man and Channel Islands which get an even worse deal TV news wise)... and it's the reporting of those variations, or lack of the reporting, on "National News" which brings us back to the original point of this thread.
