Thank you! I wonder why they do it is as separate programmes rather than a full hour. How bizarre! Understood about daylight savings which is why we are seeing if


I think you'll find BBC News Channel and BBC World News are currently simulcasting 24/7.

Not quite 24/7

During some hours the :30 section is different, as was the case at 21:30 GMT.

To answer Affi_85, World News America does indeed consist of 2x26 minute shows within the hour. Normally World News America goes out at 2200 UK time, but because of the time anomaly in March, it's an hour earlier until we change our clocks this weekend.

I think some PBS stations in the US take it and can take the first half or the second half.

If I remember correctly, the PBS stations on the east coast take the 1730 EST showing usually, the secondhalf of the hour, live.

I think you'll find BBC News Channel and BBC World News are currently simulcasting 24/7.


For most of the daytime hours during weekdays, the two channels are broadcasting separately.

From what I can work out, there simulcasting the following on weekdays: 1000-1300, 1900-0600, at least for the first half an hour then they go separate ways for the back half. Weekends are all simulcasts, including BBC One bulletins.

I presume they aren't simulcasting the Ten? or the news special we had on Monday night?

Everything is being "genericised" on the BBC, even on today's edition of HARDtalk with Zeinab Badawi, where it comes from studio C featuring the daytime backdrop and the generic bulletin graphics on the screens... (The titles and the lower thirds are in HARDtalk style.)

I don’t get why they couldn’t make it branded if they’re going through with the same format what’s stopping them from loading the studio file? Isn’t it as easy as loading the preset running order?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

BBC Ukraine has been using new graphics since last Monday. Everyone else seems to be using the old ones.
The logo is still in Gill Sans. Why? I have no idea.
I can’t think of a good signature.

Hard talk has a non standard lighting and camera style so requires extra staff. The studios are being run with fewer people so (a) fewer people need to be in close proximity to each other and (b) there is more flexibility to cope with reduced staffing.

So lighting would have to be changed in studio and it’s not LED color changing. But the cameras are all robotic and in position how would it be different with the director whose already in the chair to punch up the different cameras on the shot box?
