How extensively are BBC World reporting on the Thomas Cook collapse, especially with regard to practical information and advice for holiday makers abroad?


Lead story and also 2 or 3 more segments later in the bulletins. Various expert interviews. Company statements. Some prerecorded and replayed.

Haven’t seen telephone numbers given though, if that’s what you mean? (Help or Info Lines for stranded pax)

Are they being advised to sit tight, and carry on as normal with their holiday, (as the CAA are stepping in to pay the hotels and fly folk home on or near the scheduled return day)?

Of course they did try this with the 1999/2000 rebrand when the regions went corporate. Over the shoulder graphics and outcues were just “BBC News” but this was soon relaxed.


Did 'UK Today' use the standard BBC News out-cue or did it use the original region the story was cut for?

I know Midlands Today have had packages on air with 'BBC Points West' at the end, and in one case BBC Points West astons, and PW have aired a Midlands Today out-cue - I think it was the same package - maybe the reports weren't named correctly?
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...

Referring to this video, the outro of UK Today is just a replay of the intro of the programme. There’s no copyright messages or any sort of unique branding identification...

He means the out-cue of each report - ie Joe Bloggs, BBC Look North, Leeds. I don't know the answer though.

Sorry, I didn’t manage to see that degree of detail. But away from the newsroom, this is indeed the advice being given to those “stranded” overseas.

The British Government is mobilizing several large volume aircraft to combine flights and bring people home.

Oddly, a Malaysia Airlines Airbus A380 will operate a double Manchester to Palma tomorrow, uplifting around 600 people in each sortie.

Sorry for the thread creep.

Having just tuned in again a short while ago, World is still leading with the same story.
