Are regions told if the network bulletin will have a different finish to normal?


They all have access to the Ten O'Clock news running order in ENPS and can see the different close in it. You'd expect any 2225 producer to be across the Ten running order to ensure they were avoiding duplication, and back-refing national coverage of a story they feature in their bulletin.

Regions would also get a countdown from Network on when to opt out wouldn't they, so they get the exact time?

They wouldn't get a precise on-air 'time' for the 2225 as that junction would be handled by the BBC One News gallery not the BBC One Presentation gallery (the talkback is switched through to News once they are on-air) - but they would get an opt-out call from the News gallery, and I'd expect most directors to warn of a different opt-out (though something like a playout would be clear much earlier in the ENPS running order)

I just seen the advertisement for Look North tonight at 10! What time will the national news start tonight then?


For a fair old while now, at least some (many/most/all?) presenters of the various 6:30pm regional programmes seem to have had a nasty habit of misleadingly describing their late bulletin as being "at 10", even though they actually mean "after the national news, which is at 10".

All this fuss about this being the end of Newsnight and it turns out that the 10 is still easily off air before the BBC Two flagship heads down the slipway.

Newsnight audiences are not the sort of people who give a damn about what's happening in the regions.

The end of the Ten had an actual promo for Newsnight recorded in Studio B tonight, which would seem to be a fairly recent development, as before I've only ever seen them plugging the fact it's now starting on BBC Two. However, the set looked awful - looks like the house lighting (or whatever the term is) and so everything looked washed out and nasty.

They've been doing that since the Ten was extended. Sometimes there are cameras in shot, sometimes the lighting is a bit 'rehearsal'. All feels a bit self conscious.
