Central (East) East Midlands Today
Interestingly BBC News just showed a broadcast quality clip of Nicholas Witchell inthe broomcupboard the morning after the 1987 storm, I'd always wondered if the BBC would have actually got a recording of that, in all the panic.


I wonder if one of the regions or nations made a recording of 'Net 1' that morning ?


Interesting to see that have that in broadcast quality anyway when the infamous Michael Fish report is only on VHS!

Content wise it is never going to appeal to many here but it does seem to have found it's voice within the market, though it is still in what should be a prime rolling news slot.


If it was that important a rolling news slot, Five Live wouldn't be broadcasting a phone-in at 9am, and Sky News wouldn't be broadcasting All Out Politics at 10am. Very little happens at that time of the morning. And if news breaks, they roll with it.

I think the BBC World News morning bulletins should be renamed The World Today (affecting the NC at 5am).


It's funny you should say that, as I understand a name change is imminent (although I don't think The World Today is making a comeback).

Hopefully they will also find someone willing to take on that slot long term as the current mix of Ben Bland, Chris Rogers, Tim Willcox, David Eases, Kasia Madera, Lucy Grey, Reged Ahmad, Alpa Patel and James Menendez is hardly ideal for maintaining a viewer base (it often seems that there is more consistency in the newspaper reviewers than presenters).

Another thing is Business Presenter. Sally presents the most often but it seems like she’s only there for half the week.

It would appear that Sally is rehearsing for the new programme at the minute which would explain reduced appearances (just as Simon McCoy was on sporadically in the weeks leading up to the launch of afternoon live)
