I have no issue with the time slot. The BBC were never going to air it any later in prime time and Andrew Neil didn’t want to do late nights anymore. I do think it should be on Thursday night rather then Wednesday night. Thursday is generally the last day of the political week and you can do a proper review of the week on that day.

You sound like John birt. Only popular high rating stuff should go out at peak times.


Where have you been? I haven’t seen you for ages!

Anglia (West) Look East
This half hour show was a very major disappointment tonight. The look wasn't great and the substance uninspiring. A couple of recorded interviews and just Laura Kuenssberg briefly live. Too short as well, although considering the content maybe just as well. Literally pointless and nothing that the news channel hasn't been doing all day long. Expected much more as someone who highly rates Andrew Neil and is disgusted he's lost This Week. Having said that, the way he tied Labour MP John Healey up in knots was at least something to behold.

This half hour show, once a week is literally the BBC throwing some consolation crumbs at Andrew Neil and the loyal viewers to his old late night show. He might as well have been given a full hour on the BBC News Channel instead.

Tyne Tees Look North (North East)
Is it not likely that events have overtaken the show they had planned? They could well have had to scrap other planned features due to events.


I expect this to be the case. Can imagine most MPs and lords also want to be in the palace tonight rather than Millbank so they can go and vote in divisions. (Yes Millbank is close, but you're possibly pushing it)

It should be 8PM as 7PM clashes with Beyond 100 Days the main evening political programme


Eh? Beyond 100 Days is on the BBC News Channel - not a mainstream channel like BBC Two. The UK audiences for Beyond 100 Days are likely to be tiny (and it skews US-wards), and I don't think BBC Two's schedulers will be paying much attention to the News Channel schedule? (I doubt BBC News will to be honest)

Your point being the BBC don’t give a toss what they air on their news channel and BBC Four?

Of course it has little impact of what is on BBC Two but a remarkable statement nevertheless.
