The 'BBC News Report' has just disappeared from my Sky EPG within the last few minutes.

Kate Silverton's doing it if I read and understand her tweet correctly


Maybe in the BBC shake up, we can see the duty news channel presenter on the weekend nationals, rather than drafting in someone for 20 minutes to present them... But that's another topic entirely!

I'm surprised no one has criticised Mark Thompson in any from, he seems to have got off quite lightly. A lot of this stuff was going on while he was in post including the Savile Newsnight report being pulled. I know he's no longer at the BBC, but surely he is answerable in some form to the Culture, Media and Sport select committee?


Entwistle has resigned not because of the Savile/Newsnight report from last year. But for what happened last Friday on Newsnight which was completely under his watch. His performance on Today and Breakfast this morning didn't help him.


I know that, but he still hasn't been mentioned.

Interesting that the chap Anita McVeigh was talking to just referred to the channel as 'BBC News 24'. That rebrand never really worked but never mind.

Back on topic...

Anyone know if BBC One is running to time?

The Remembrance has been known to run over scheduled finish time!

(That will really **** up the News Channel!)

We'll know when Anita McVeigh stands up at the wall to allow Kate to prepare.

Well can you see them firing up N9/TC7 for 5 minutes?

Doubtful.

Does the Beeb have a small studio now?
