I take it World will take the same schedule?

Yes, although according to Digiguide the News Channel will still show The Papers at 22:45 so they may do their own thing then.

I would assume so. However the online World News schedule/listings don't currently go up to 31 January.

The moment of going in wasn't marked at all on BBC1 or BBC2, according to Genome, but on Radio 4, there was a special programme from London, Brussels, Paris and Hamburg. It lasted 10 minutes. Perhaps today's BBC could learn from this approach....

In another thread I posted Radio 2 had a four hour special that night, hosted by Ray Moore, Jimmy Young and <shudder> DLT. I can just remember it, but could have sworn it was hosted by John Dunn.

Yes, and Radio 1 went all out also:

T minus 3 (days).

Blimey! There’s been so much happening elsewhere in the last few weeks, rendering the B word absent from many of our screens, thoughts and minds. (Admittedly not everyone’s, though).

A busy news week ensues.

I think the Late Late Show on RTÉ could be the only place in The Republic of Ireland to get anything on Brexit because there is no special TV news coverage of Brexit Day yet. Unless the major broadcasters in Ireland do something about it at the minute. I think RTÉ Radio bulletins & other private radio broadcast stations in the country would probably have a field day with reporting about Brexit Day at the TOTH at 11pm.

The BBC are just covering the simulcast with Huw Edwards & Sophie Raworth presumably on World & the NC?

I have not found anything else regarding special coverage elsewhere from the other BBC TV channels of note.

Is Huw Edwards even involved? I’ve only seen Sophie Raworth listed.

I imagine Huw retreats to his luxury penthouse flat on Barry Island at the weekend, and this will be no exception

His name was mentioned in some tv guide listings, but on the official BBC One schedules online his name is not mentioned.

He was originally.
