Was the George Floyd Memorial service carried on all feeds of BBC World News? I could easily see them carry it on the North American feed as our primetime schedule differs from the rest of the world (previously no ABR and different back half hours). Was the memorial also carried domestically? I was surprised to read Sky News carried it. At the same time his murder has resonated world wide and inspired protests throughout in London.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Yes, Ryan. I watched a large part of it on BBC World.

What time does the half hour finish usually on BBC World? I've just seen Matthew Amroliwala (who I'm assuming is the current duty presenter) walking around in the background of the News at Six at 18:23.

EDIT: just remembered he might not be on if World are showing George Floyd's funeral.

I imagine the Focus On Africa presenter will have been in the studio preparing and on stand by to take over if the feed cut out.

Has Lukwesa Burak been doing Focus On Africa? I haven't seen her on the News Channel once since the start of lockdown in March.

According to her Twitter, yes. Personally I'd be happy to see her remain at FOA when things return to normal...
