So while there's lots to be talking about re. Brexit and Sky are leading on this. The VD show is currently having a discussion around Brazilian Butt Lifts. You couldn't make it up.

Not forgetting the biohackers


I think Catrin Nye's 'lovely film' about the Biohackers was as long as their Brexit segment this morning? The 'butt lift' segment wasn't that long along with the homeless interview.

Few issues during the 11:00pm TOTH. Newsroom and Studio cameras were "stuck" during the TOTH and while typing this the ticker is still not on screen.

Edit - Ticker is now on screen. 7 minutes into the hour

Note the TOTH headline graphics used the BBC News/bbc.co.uk strip which they don't normally. Looks like they had a system failure and were using some sort of backup.

The ticker appears to be blank, and in Breaking News red - I presume it's not the usual strap that's used to cover over recordings, as that's usually slightly taller.

EDIT: maybe I'm wrong - there's a thin black bar after the clock, so perhaps it is the blanking strap.

EDIT 2: Checking iPlayer rewind, the ticker was removed at around 2:05 (and possibly for a while before that) because it was repeating headlines in a row.

EDIT 3: Ticker appeared for a minute or so at 3am, before being removed again.

Don't think it's been mentioned, but it seems that the BBC News Channel is running a new package for "Weekends on the BBC News Channel", which just shows a sample of the pre-recorded programmes they show (like Click/Travel Show etc). If they can do that and get rid of the other specific programme ads they play far too often, it would be nice.
