It’s also worth noting that HardTalk very rarely comes from Studio C these days, and is only doing so now because World News is coming from E for a large proportion of the day.

They’re obviously using C for HardTalk (as opposed to some of their regular studios) because 1) C is available; 2) Has robotic unmanned cameras; 3) Is already “operational” as it covers the early daylight and overnight broadcast hours.

So, it makes sense to continue to use one of the designated studios during this time, as opposed to opening up another one which may require camera operators.

Aside from that, why they’re not using the HardTalk “branding”: I’ve no idea! Perhaps to bring the revised branding to C (which hasn’t been used for some time) requires the attendance or input of someone who just simply isn’t available during these curtailed days.

As a World viewer, it’s nice to see Zeinab in generic C!

And, she’ll be doing her own make-up as usual........lol.

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.


Not quite!

Simulcasting from 10:00 to 13:00 as you say.

Then again from 19:00 to 20:30.

BBC World News has two half-hours of World News America at 21:00 and 21:30 and another edition of Outside Source at 22:00 followed by Asia Business Report & Sport Today.

From 23:00 the channels simulcast for the first half hour of each hour until 05:00, when there is a full hour of news.

The evenings will change from Monday after the clocks change in Europe.

When the Pandemic is over and The Cuts starting kicking in, does this mean something else is getting the boot (depending on where the new show goes.)

The new programme is very unlikely to air on world as it is will be short form content and no more than 10 minutes in length. Why it has been given its own presenter in a time of cuts is questionable unless it'll be totally made by that person.

Presumably because they’re making it for somebody else and therefore being paid for it.

Click has a special 20th anniversary show now available on the iPlayer, complete with snips of the original titles and Stephen Cole (who is now at CGTN).

Click launched as Click Online on BBC World on Thursday 6th April 2000. If I remember correctly, it was at 2130 CET. BBC World relaunched with the corporate look on the Monday morning of that week.

My god… maybe I never saw it when I was a regular watcher, but Spencer Kelly seems to have transformed into Alan Partridge judging by the intro/outro bits
