Because BBC World seems to be scheduled according to US times rather than GMT/BST.


It's based on whether a programme is taken by affiliate or partner stations. Focus on Africa is always fixed at 1730 GMT or 1930 CAT throughout the year, while World News America is fixed to 1700 & 1730 ET/EDT. The first half hour of GMT is taken by some US PBS stations, AFAIK, and is also fixed.

PBS usually takes GMT when it’s a full hour (but only air the first) at 7AM ET — when they’re in Studio B.

Also before anyone asks at 9:00pm where Outside Source is.



This means it will probably be News at Nine at 9:00pm followed by the 2nd half of World News America at 9:30-This also applies next week as well til we do our clock change the weekend after next.

What a shame we can’t have this time difference every week.

No News at One today on the NC due to coverage of the spring statement at the parliament. I wonder how does the NC switch studios without disabling the tickers for a short while?

Your YouTube video in the BBC WN thread indicates otherwise: It shows the first part of GMT, in studio C. I assume they record the first edition and show 'as live' later?

Not all UK viewers agree with you. I like it.
