Brexitcast - The TV Show

DVB Cornwall West Country (West) Spotlight

Just announced, the Brexitcast Team will take This Week's post QT slot after it ends it's run next month.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I love Brexitcast and never miss an episode but I always feel there are things they get away with more because it's a podcast. It feels more like an exclusive club, and I'm not sure how that'll translate to TV full time.

Having said that - just to completely contradict myself - This Week feels a bit like that too.

Can I take a moment to gloat? Called it four months ago! Wink

Completely uninformed speculation alert: I wouldn't be too shocked to see a TV version of Brexitcast (presumably renamed!) filling the gap. It's a broadly tonally similar production (but perhaps with more enthusiasm and less cynicism) which skews significantly younger. The Politics Live "takeovers" show that there's some desire to try it out on TV.

As much as I love Brexitcast, it's not really a direct replacement for This Week as this won't be an all round review of the week in Westminster.

With Brexit not solved yet, this makes perfect sense and is (I'd guess) a very cheap option for the BBC considering everything is already in place.

Worth noting that Chris and Adam from Brexitcast did the Euro Election special on R4 and 5 Live recently with inserts from Katya and Laura. A possible dummy run for them covering By-Election specials currently done under the This Week brand?

Depressing to think how long that might run for.

So if and when Brexit happens, does it need renaming like Beyond 100 Days?
My contribution is small but you are welcome.

Recently Chris and Adam were interviewed for the Radio Today Programme podcast and Chris mentioned that he believed the format will continue as a podcast if and when Brexit comes to it's final conclusion.

The format as a podcast is superb. I can't see it working trying to transpose it to TV. Quite why the BBC cancelled This Week is somewhat of a conundrum to me.

An actual TV programme on actual TV will surely need higher production values than a podcast that is filmed. Therefore surely there will be hardly any saving compared to This Week (which is hardly high budget)

Seems the News Channel will be taking it as well (if i've got this tweet right)
