But it’s such a niche thing. Your average viewer doesn’t care about the markets in Hong Kong or whatever. There are plenty of places like Bloomberg, CNBC and whatever that provide business news. I don’t think it’s the place of the BBC to provide it.

The financial sector is quite a large contributor to the UK economy, and business news isn't just provided for the domestic channel, the same information is provided for WN. Surely there is a cost saving in providing all this information to both?


I wouldn't want the NC to become simply a rolling news channel (a la ITN/ITV News Channel), which simply repeated the same 30 minute bulletin ad nauseam.

Business, technology, sport and travel are as much a part of a varied news diet.

I actually like the business news segments. It's not just reports about the various stock market indices, it explains many of the political activities of the day, and their potential consequences.

Maybe it’s different for NC but on World News branded bulletins they frequently use the same copy through out the presenters shift. I typically watch in what would be the morning in the U.K. (up to GMT/Impact) and there have been many times I’ve gotten déjà vu. I’ve rewound the bulletins a few times just to confirm my suspicions. The only thing that may change is the the cross talk during interviews.

I like them too. They explain things a bit better for the average viewer and makes it understandable. CNBC and Bloomberg definitely go after the business viewer.

I once asked Sally or Adnan a year ago why the 0545 news review focuses on the business stories and there explanation was that they assume business persons were a key part of the audience at that hour. They may not have been privy to the information causing the focus on business stories but I assume research was done at one point.

Presenters for the 1/6/10 write their own copy (as told by Fiona Bruce on The Russell Howard Hour week before last) so it does vary at least at those times, not sure about the rest of the day.

Before the afternoon update, you'd often see the same lead story script used for the One, repeated over the Two or Three hours (dependent on Breaking News). It's the same with the Ten, quite often it's the same lead script on the NC at Eleven.

Lets not forget how Breakfast also deals with business news, it has a consumerist slant, yet isn't by any means dumbed down. In any case, the more markets based bulletin is on BBC News/World at 0830, yet is still more accessible than CNBC and Bloomberg which targets investors and bankers.

More accurate to say they rewrite scripts already written by production journalists in most cases (including Fiona).

Headlines are often written from scratch by presenters, but not always.

What is going on with the alignment of this IRAN Earthquake text? Nothing about the two words is aligned - Font Size, Top or Bottom.

I’m sure that’s the burning question on the lips of anyone affected by the quake.

Maybe it was a subtle nod to the fact that there was an earthquake and things aren’t aligned as they used to be.

(But I doubt it).

Hmm. The only thing aligned is the text box. The text within it is all sorts of wrong. Pesky descender on the ‘q’ ...
