With the simulcast being branded as BBC World News and using bbc.com addresses I find it feels like we're eavesdropping on something not meant for us. Particularly when they show the on this day packages with BBC World News bug.

The old generic BBC News branding was much more inclusive.

Business Live only went out on World this morning with Rachel Horne and Jamie Robertson.

NC viewers had an extra half hour of Breakfast.

Newsroom Live was dropped with regular BBC News titles instead.


I noticed yesterday Outside Source instead of a uk story showed a BBC World News breakfiller instead, it's just so odd to watch it on the BBC News channel even more so at 8:15 pm

Hate to break it to you but the UK is part of this world.

Although some people are of the belief it won't be come June.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Missed the point much?

If the overnight simulcast was billed as "joins BBC World News" it would be different, but compared to the care that used to be taken not to show the BBC World News brand (apart from specific World News slots) and bbc.com in the UK, the current arrangements look a bit sloppy.

They might as well rebrand the BBC News Channel as a UK opt out of World News.

It's odd, because different presenters/shows etc seem to take different approaches to how they refer to the channel on the overnights. Newsday makes reference-a-plenty to BBC WN, and at the BOTH headlines goes from 'this is BBC World News' to 'now on BBC News' within a couple of minutes.

Some of the more 'seasoned' presenters during the simulcasts will only refer to BBC News, but then looking at the midnight bulletin on iPlayer we go from a reference at the TOTH to WN, a WN breakfiller at :15, but then generic 'BBC News' references pre-weather, during the BOTH headlines and as the presenter introduces the back half-hour programme. During WN/NC simulcasts in daytime when there's breaking news, they also ditch the references to World News.

Until recently, there was a BBC World News branded bulletin on BBC Two and BBC Four doesn't hide the World branding on the 1900 edition of World News Today.

Considering RT has both UK skewed bulletins and those of an international (Putin) perspective, I really don't see an issue with bulletins that have a worldwide perspective on a domestic rolling news channel.

Sorry I don't understand the problem.

Is it just about the brand or do you want more UK centered news bulletins?


I just dislike the way it feels like we're eavesdropping on a programme which we're not meant to be seeing. Kind of like how when your regional news can't go on air so you get another region who don't even acknowledge that you're watching them, it just feels a bit strange.

It's things that could easily be sorted, they have the ability to do different astons and straps for both outlets, so covering the World News patch on the On this day packages with a domestic one, splitting straps for web addresses so we don't see bbc.com.

Or more actively acknowledge the UK audience like OS does trailing ahead to the back half hour programmes on both outlets.

But I think if we're going to have more and more sharing of content it makes sense to have unified branding.
