No, I think there is only one clock for every feed showing both CET and GMT.


A few years ago at least, CNN International used Hong Kong time in Asia and Buenos Aires time (or was it Rio de Janeiro time?) in Latin America. Has that changed?

I've seen shows promoted within other shows with London and Hong Kong time on them (for example the election coverage promoted within Quest Means Business) but trailers and the clock are GMT (or London) and CET, while promotions within CNN US simulcasts are always in ET.

My understanding is that the commercial break promos are always different for each region -- so Asia and Latin America get their own times (see example below). Bit because the in-programming slides are the same for everyone, they include several different time zones.

The last time I watched CNN International's North American feed (yes there is one for the US/CA in addition to Domestic), they used ET and PT.

BBC World News manage to have different programme slides played out in their regions.

As expected, with the PBS thing Amanpour has become a totally useless program when it comes to current developments and breaking news, if it comes outside of US. For 2 straight nights they are completely ignoring Brexit breaking news and focusing on same old US stories. Tonight it's even worse with a new movie about FOX boss Roger Alies being the top story and interviews covering it.

To be fair that was the case even before the PBS simulcast. The show has never really covered breaking news and has been overly US focused for quite a while (like with most CNN content). And some of the editions not focused on US news that I've seen really hasn't been hard-hitting affairs - interviews with Grace Jones and Shaggy instantly spring to mind as the sort of thing that'd be fine on Talk Asia but not the 'agenda setting' show Amanpour is supposed to be. The show does turn into a bit of an echo chamber too at times - it's not hard to tell Christiane's view on certain stories.

Amanpour feels like it should be a much better program than it is.

I presume the London stuff is all on-location today given the Brexit news. Have to say while Bianca Nobilo didn't hugely impress me when filling in on CNN Today, she was very good from what I saw last night reporting on Brexit. Rising star, that one.

Haven't really watched CNN too much during European mornings recently too. Has there been any change since the end of Newsroom LA or is it as you were but with the former LA bulletin now in Atlanta? Am I right in thinking Hong Kong now takes over from 10am UK time (obviously with London producing CNN Talk at midday)?

^ Actually not, CNN London does the new 1100 cet bulletin as well, Hong Kong only fills in occasionally when there's no one to fill in in London. So it's still just NewsStream from London.

As for Amanpour, while it was always an interview based show, they had Christiane on location in London many times covering UK breaking stories. I can't imagine that happening now, unless it's a huge Royal event, the only UK news story that Americans care for.
