There definitely used to be one, example below

The opt-out at 09:00 was always very short, probably less than a minute, so it's doubtful that the example you provided from 7 years ago actually started before 09:00. I apologise in advance for my pedantry. Shocked

Sorry I misunderstood, I thought AlexS was inferring that there's never been a regional opt out around 9am at all, not just before 9am.

Did the News Channel stay with Breakfast right through until 09:05 this morning or did the News at 9 crash in at 09:00?


I came to ask the same question... it seems as though someone has recorded it:

Ah the BBC Breakfast perfected awkward opt remains 😃. Seriously though that works.

I thought I heard Look East day at 0730 ish that they would be back in an hour so it was clearly planned. Why though?

Iplayer would suggest the regional opt at 09:05 went out as usual. There hasn't been an opt just before 9 for many a year if there ever was one.

I seem to remember BBC Scotland's 9am opt used to keep the headline bed running throughout - it was definitely brief.

They should aknowledge it by saying 'and this is where we leave viewers on BBC News. You've been watching breakfast' [opt out] 'and for viewers on BBC1 here are the latest headlines'

Or something along those lines

But the percentage of viewers watching on the news channel is far lower than BBC1 so they aren't going to be mentioned

Or alternatively they shouldn’t be spreading content so thinly that they are simulcasting so much in the first place...

If cost matters so much, they shouldn’t have more channels than they have content for.

As much as I hate to say it, I really don’t see the point of the BBC News Channel anymore.

The thing is that the BBC wouldn’t want hand rolling news domination to Sky, Aljazeera etc.

Why not? Other news channels exist so the BBC has to have one? Should they be running an porno channel too?
