The vaguaries of the English language I think. The presenter has essentially lost their line to Brussels or wherever when a link goes down. We as a viewing collective have at the same time lost our line from Brussels.

World News America today came to PBS with the BBC News logo and appeared with the bbc.co.uk address again.

For a while the boxed BBC News logo appeared on screen mid program at the beginning of a prerecorded interview as well.
