Sophie at a weekend? Christ. What of such significance triggered that?

She presented the Saturday following the General Election so could have been linked to that?


Ah, right. I'm suprised they didn't have Huw booked for that shift considering that election was going to be one of the most "indecisive" and "almost certainly" a hung parliament. But that explains it, as I remember being pumped for a dramatic week only to find out that the conservatives won a majority and that there wouldn't be any of the coalition talks or whatever.

I remember Huw doing a 21:55 programme after the 10 election though. From Downing St, on a Saturday.

Sophie also done a Saturday bulletin in 2012 - 22nd December, last Saturday before Christmas. Not sure of the possible reason behind that one. She only did the late bulletin as Martine Croxall did the early evening.

I know some will disagree, but it'd be good to perhaps see her on BBC One a little more often.

Yes it would. An extra twice on weekends so far this year would have been ideal.

Just thought I'd let you know that I've spoken to Rolling News (with this being his thread) and for the rota fans among you I will be (until I'm back in the office full time at least) posting the count of presenters at the end of every month, and possibly (if I have time) comparing the figures on the previous year.

I will be starting with the July figures for 1,6 and 10 at the end of the month.
Rolling News, lesmauresfr and Matthew_Fieldhouse gave kudos
