According to Genome, yes. CBBC followed by a movie.


The other quite dull observation is that on BBC1 that evening there was an example of something they did a couple of times in that era, when if the late news was going to be on especially late otherwise, they would do two bulletins, in this instance at 7.50 and 11.05 - https://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/schedules/bbcone/london/2000-05-01

A very early clip of Susanna Reid reading the BBC News in 2000. Pretty much unrecognisable compared to nowadays.

I bet when you posted this on Sunday you weren't expecting it to be retweeted by Susanna herself, and end up in an article in the Mail and the Mirror!

This might be the wrong place, but what is it with people taking other people's work and trying to pass it off as their own?

Everyone remembers this - so good the BBC used it for the 20th aniversary of N24.

This channel has used a snippet of it, and then slapped a 'copyright' on it in the description.

Could be one of three things. They're either annoyed by other people nicking their stuff and instinctively want to watermark it (I hold my hands up to that one), they either have no understanding of copyright whatsoever and live in a fantasy world, or they live in another fantasy world where they like to think they own a media conglomerate and plaster their "brand" over everything, regardless of the content they're uploading.

Some people are so desperate to be accepted on YouTube and have four figure view counts that they'll nick a popular video from another channel and hope it pulls people in just so they can watch the view count shoot through the roof. Quite what these people think they're going to achieve I have no idea, but its obviously quicker than going out filming, making and editing something unique.

Other people just nick things regardless, butcher them and then claim their botching is real. "15 minute music interval man" is the classic example here. But less said about that the better.

People on YouTube these days care about quantity over quality.

Though BBC2 were showing Song of the South(!) at the same time as CBBC.

There are certain YouTube individuals and channels who practice the quality over quantity and this is why they only upload, say, weekly or on occasion, but when they do, it's a good quality upload and it was worth waiting for.

So Tom Scott for example. This video, according to the follow-up post on the Matt & Tom channel, took weeks to edit apparently, but it was worth it and served to preserve a segment of how presentation looked on Sky and BBC News at the time:


But it only has 686k views. And yet this video below also from Tom Scott's channel, basically boils down to waiting for toast to pop up and it racked up 5.3m views and counting:


There is no accounting for what becomes popular on YouTube sometimes.
