Yorkshire Look North (Yorkshire)
Sorry I decided to post in the style of 623058 there!

They threw to Natalie Perks in Russia to give some extra info about England, but she was obviously on a very long time delay.

So she stood in silence for 5 seconds and just as she started to speak, they assumed she couldn’t hear so moved to the regional headline.

Anglia (East) Look East
Was it just Look East (Norwich) with a trigger happy director for the regional opt in the headlines for tonight’s Ten? We saw Dan briefly waiting to do his piece and then switched to Amelia but then at the end saw the end of the Sportday promo for the news channel.

It's not very often the Ten doesn't start with the thunderclaps. But starting tonight straight in with Aretha Franklin singing set the tone just right.


Also on The Six with no headline bed - came across really sombre. There was a double thunderclap after the Aretha story which I wasn't sure was right.

My contribution is small but you are welcome.

Yes it would sound a lot smoother as a single bed with the thunderclaps as seperate pieces of audio dropped over the top.

Do the regions still play the bed in locally during their bit? (Or does the digital network feed have extra audio channels they can send it down clean and in sync?)

I can imagine that having London continuously restart the bed doesn't help the regional guys to sync their copy up.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Beds are played in locally. There are additional audio channels for audio description (and possibly other uses) but they aren't decoded or made available in regional galleries, and with the proposed change to opt-out architecture removing the network feed to the regions, there would be little point in adding them.

With a bit of cleverness, if/when the centralised opting system is implemented, the bed could also be centrally added 'under' the opts. (Although, there would also be the scope for comedy moments to occur too )
