Brexitcast - The TV Show

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)

They might just use the existing cameras in many of the studios. Clearly presenters, guests and most of the production team are already in place so little additional cost compared to presumably This Week.

I do hope it doesn't change the essence and feel of the programme though and that this doesn't hinder their ability to rabbit on without a fixed timeslot for the podcast.

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




Obvious slot would be as weekend back half hour filler.

It's already shown on BBC News Channel on weekends isn't it? I'm sure I seen it on a Saturday afternoon few weeks ago.

I wonder if this will be a live show from Millbank (with as many of them as possible in the studio or in contribution studios) of them making the podcast live - or a PSC shoot/edit of the weekly edited podcast as now shown on the News Channel - or something in between?

Special editions have been recorded for TV but it wasn't the norm.

I seem to remember them doing that weird One Show special.

Quite why the BBC cancelled This Week is somewhat of a conundrum to me.


Isn't the reason that Andrew Neil quit?

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.


Andrew Neil wanted the show moved to 7:30 pm and they said no. So he quit, and they decided to end the show.

I am guessing they saw Brexitcast's setup as a fine replacement.

As much as I like This Week. I don’t think 7:30pm would have felt right for the show. It felt like your treat and something to look forward to after watching dire people on Question Time.

The only way I could see This Week going prime time is if the BBC offered a slot on the NC, possibly replacing Outside Source on Thursday evenings and then the current slot on BBC1.

Brexitcast is a bit too niche. Can’t say I’m excited by this news.

Talking about Brexit is niche?
