Just a guess, but if they couldn't CSO the weather and there was a fault, perhaps with the vision mixer, they might not have got it sorted in time for their 8pm bulletin, which is also CSO. Did they manage a late weather, or is that taken from Plymouth these days?
Two minutes regions...

Simon 'perky' Parkin in the hot seat alongside Sangeeta for the first time in his 10 years with ITV.

I could NOT imagine him as a newsreader... How was he?

Rather wooden and looked most uncomfortable throughout. Apparently he is presenting for a few nights so tune in tonight, if you can, and see what you think.

Further strangeness on BBC South... the soft area of the set was in use in the second half of the 6:30 programme, but the keying on the CSO weather forecast was terrible. There was no shot of the weather presenter interacting with Sally, which suggested it was pre-recorded or shot elsewhere. Then another pan-regional 7:57 from Oxford.
