Technical problem with the OB when they came back from the break at 05:16 BST.
The out-of-break sting was followed by a black screen. But the usual ticker and programme name graphics still duly appeared at the bottom, over the blackness. As did the "Live: Windsor" bug in the top left.
After a couple of seconds of blackness and silence, we cut to David Eades in the usual NBH studio (we had not seen David and/or the studio proir to this moment). Thus proving that he was there as back-up in case of exactly this kind of error. He read out one or two News In Brief headlines, accompanied by footage and lower thirds as usual.
We went straight from the end of News In Brief back to Sally in Windsor, who referred to the technical problems.
EDIT: It now appears that the entire Business Briefing section was always going to be anchored by David in the studio.
