One thing I've never understood about Hardtalk is why it's normally only shown in graveyard slots, typicallly 00:30 and 04:30. The only other slot it's currently shown in is 3pm on Sundays on BBC Parliament.
They could quite easily show Hardtalk in other slots, especially at weekends, or in other slots on BBC Parliament.
It used to be shown on the BBC News Channel at 8.30pm and even had its own ad which was shown around 4pm that day. That was back when the channel was double headed in the afternoons, but around late 2016 (just before certain political events happened), it was scrapped, presumably due to Beyond 100 Days and Outside Source leaving no room for anything else than just 30 minutes of news brtween the two simulcasts on the NC.
I agree it should come back to daytime broadcasting and not be in graveyard shifts, it basically makes it an online broadcast. It’s not even shown on weekends either, which they could easily do instead of repeating Click and Travel Show nearly 8 times over the weekend.
