James Comey was the pre-recorded interview, Mooch was live. Or as-live, anyway, since it looked dark outside but would only have been about 6pm New York time. Mind you it was hard to tell with all the electronic billboards. Netflix got a fair of only-slightly-obscured free advertising!

I think someone should look at fixing that rather strange broadcast reflection in Studio E during the Papers!

If you look carefully, when the camera switches to the shot of both reviewers (the fixed camera on them), at the top of the red strip (the one on the left of the silver pillar next to the screens used as a background for that camera shot), you can see an obvious camera movement shot that’s like a broadcast reflection from whatever camera is zooming into the Augmented Reality papers that the viewers see. In some cases, you can see said camera zooming in and out trying to get the AR in focus.

I couldn’t get a screenshot of it due to the fact I’m posting this rom a mobile device, but if you look in the iplayer repeat, it should be easy to notice.

I know this has been mentioned a lot in the past but I'm watching click and glancing at the overnight ticker on BBC News which is just pointless. Why don't they just leave it running from earlier in the day like Sky News do and then only update it if there is some breaking news?

Tourist takes crowdfunded trip to British Islands - why was it crowdfunded and for what purpose?
Six shops defying the high street down turn - which shops?
The brilliant revolutionary who refused to change his ways - who?
Pick Wenger's greatest Arsenal XI - what?
Wells Fargo hit by record $1 billion penalty - for what?
GDPR: Are you ready for the EU's huge data privacy shake-up? - I don't know
Do Spurs need cup win more than Man Utd? - I don't know...you tell me

On the whole the ticker doesn't really tell you much and leaves more questions than answers

I never thought I'd see the day where the BBC News Press Team would tweet about Pocket Size Mark Ryes:





Seemingly, an old video uploaded to YouTube as a dramatic recreation has been shared on WhatsApp without context. At a guess, he's been paid on Fiverr to do this video.


I must have first seen this faked video about a year ago. How come it took so long for it to suddenly become newsworthy in its own right? As far as I can tell there are rather a lot of bad taste jokers out there who have been playing clips like this and others into actual TV's from YT for unsuspecting family members to scare them into believing they are genuine TV news about an incoming nuclear attack.

As for the presenter, well it goes without saying that if the world was about to come crashing and burning down and the nation wiped out then the BBC would obviously employ a little chap not ever seen on BBC News before and only notable as being someone who flogged cheap tat on a discredited Bid TV shopping channel a few years ago. How can people be so gullible in this day and age with so many sources of info to cross reference.

From the clips I’ve seen it looked like two fake sets as well. Did it include the BBC Logo?

There's a ticker on the outside wall of BBC Birmingham in the Mailbox, on that they have the headline and then the first paragraph of the story, which is better.

The TOTH at the midday bulletin played the out vision globe titles to go live to the 41 gun salute at Hyde Park for the Queen's Birthday. The next salute will be at The Tower of London which will take place later this afternoon.
