Today's regional bulletins were 3.32.

They could easily have given an extra 10 minutes to the national/regional news at 7pm by pushing the schedule back so MOTD started at 10.30 rather than 10.20.
Stay Local. Stay Safe. Stay Alive.

I agree. MOTD often starts at 10:30pm.

Surprised to see a Central News report with Bob Warman on this morning's The Daily Show on Comedy Central. About a circumcision. Let's leave that there!

Did the Daily Show cut about a quarter of unwanted material off that footage?
Readers are warned that this post contains some flash photography
Brekkie, Woodpecker and Rkolsen gave kudos

I understand they had to tackle the matter very delicately...

I wonder if they tipped off the BBC that they were going to use the clip Laughing

Special titles for an ITV News Central Special tonight for the verdict of the Birmingham pub bombings. There was also a special continuity announcement leading into it by Andrew Hayden-Smith.

There was also a continuity announcement by Andrew leading out of the end of the programme to say that due to the coverage, The People's Millions vote will now be held on Monday.

Fake Britain has been replaced on Monday evening with a special programme as well, on BBC One Midlands. Schedules not yet updated however was trailed at the end of MTD with an Aston.

Is the programme going to be shown in NI, as the documentary a couple of years ago was (though that was produced by BBC News NI).

Which would have made sense if you could see the location of the bomb from it. Unless the thought process was that 'Cafe Rouge' is a bit like a pub!?
