If it wasn't for BBC1 trying to fit too much into their schedule tonight, a more usual length bank holiday news bulletin could easily have been filled.
That seems to happen way to often. Both Christmas Day and New Years Day could have dropped a show and aired it on another key night where the schedule seemed much more empty.
Not just at Christmas too - Sundays were packed in the autumn with Attenborough relegated to 6.15 when it usually gets an 8pm slot and the August Bank Holiday weekend saw 4 hours of Sunday night drama crammed in over two nights when had they kept their normal slots the BBC could have effectively saved the cash they spent on War of the Worlds.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
