Split from BBC News: Presenters & Rotas

This must be one of the shortest evening news bulletins ever on BBC One - even shorter than Christmas Day's - any indications why they've gone so short?


Actually 1st January had even less presenters to cover than Christmas Day. Christmas Day news channel was one three-hour cover and three four-hour shifts (the same as much of the Christmas period). Not as few as a weekend cover. 1st January was proper weekend cover - three five-hour shifts.

Today has been back to weekday normal, except for the News at When? For the flagship show, they seem to be wanting to get it out of the schedule and move people to teatime (having had no news at teatime on Christmas Day). Tomorrow's late News at When seems to be shorter than even today's.

But other than News at Ten being late and shorter, BBC Scotland been on a single-presenter The Seven today - but back to a full hour Nine tomorrow - and no Newsnight on BBC Two, no Victoria Derbyshire, it has otherwise been a full weekday programming set.

The Seven was extended as it was a bank holiday in Scotland on Thursday.

Katty Kay is acting as a cohost / newsreader on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Normally they have some sort of transition between analytics and news. This time she appeared onscreen by herself reading the news outside a break.

Have to say, I'm a big fan of this. There is so much talent on the News Channel that never see the light of day on Network news.

It's great the News Channel are utilising the immense talent of Rachel Scholfield once again. She's such a profound presenter/anchor, unflappable.

Looking forward to Martine on the late bulletin.

Scheduling.
They’ve squeezed in Mrs Brown, which is very late for a work night, and they’ve also got MOTD on a massive day for the premier league, which they’d probably not want to delay any more than they already are doing

They should really have had the news at 10:30 with MOTD at 10:45 and shown Mrs Brown on a different night

Mrs Brown is contracted for Christmas Day and New Year's Day specials for the BBC, so they have to air it New Year's Day - this will come to an end this year, as 2020 marks the conclusion of Brendan O'Carroll's contract deal with the BBC for the specials.


Whilst we know that specials of Mrs Brown's Boys are indeed contracted up until this year, how can you possibly know the contract stipulates these specials must air on Christmas Day and New Year's Day?

Brendan O'Carroll said so in an interview with RTE's Ryan Tubridy a few years a go.

Indeed I very much doubt the day is stipulated just the time of year. RTE have aired the episodes in the past on Christmas eve and NYE
