That's far more clear, perhaps DVB Cornwall would be better off quoting this and deleting his original attempt.

Thanks Peter, now I understand what's happening. I wonder if the extra 15 minutes will be subtracted from Jeremy Paxman's rota later in the week, or whether it'll be done at a rate of several seconds per day over the rest of the tax year. Does anyone have any information about this?

Wow. It's like you have taken a system for displaying time that people have used for centuries and carried on using it in the same way. It was so obvious, I'm surprised no one else thought of doing it.

Just get him to do a Friday for a change. Simples.

Do you think that Breakfast will just use one of the presenters already over there for their coverage, or a reporter?

I remember Bill was in the Washington studio for the 2008 elections. Obviously with DQF, I think that it is improbable that they'll have one of their normal presenters from there.

If I don't watch on the US Networks then I'll be certainly tuning into ITV1. Their coverage in 2008 was actually brilliant.


I have a few days off next week with the US Elections as the reasoning rather than keep getting up at different times during the night.

I will be watching itv1 and Alastair Stewart is brilliant; I am pleased to say I have met him too on two occasions.

A brief trailer on ITV NAT featuring Alastair Stewart talking about Tuesday night's coverage. No wide shots or music but the studio looks nice - similar design to the current look but blue, and lots of it! Not a bit of yellow in sight. Laughing

I'll be watching ITV on Tuesday night, purely because I find them to be much more engaging, informing and entertaining on election nights. As much as I'm fond of the BBC's election coverage, it does get rather stale very early on in the night.

Jon Kay announced at the end of today's programme that Bill will be reporting from the States for the elections.
