The BBC have just cut to the weather. I'm expecting either for Christian to join Katty for a special edition of the unnamed hour..or they are getting someone in place for a BBC One Newsflash


No newsflash on BBC One at the 9pm junction.

Be glad it's not a weekend, or they'd be cutting away for Click, Hardtalk or The Travel Show...

They regularly don't air them if there's breaking news, this was a 5 minute break for weather and adverts so Christan could come on

They did however, run a trailer which featured a fake "breaking news" strap (!)
Ittr and Matthew_Fieldhouse gave kudos

There wasn’t one on ITV either, but then both of their news bulletins are coming up in an hour.

Joe Biden is meant to speak about the ongoing situation momentarily.

Really no excuse for this not being on either channel, especially BBC1 which is basically filler tonight (even if The Repair Show is now one of their highest rated shows). I think tonights events are probably more significant than 9/11 - possibly the most significant US political event since the US Civil War.

Biden a real president - timed his (historic) speech nicely for broadcasters joining at the top of the hour. Boris Johnson condemning the obstruction to the transfer of power in the last few minutes, and now reports of a bomb being found. This is more than news channel fodder.

This is probably the most significant event since 9/11. I don't really care what is on BBC One this evening, they need to get on air, Frankly they needed to get on air at 8PM when this started

I thought there would have at least been a news flash on BBC One and ITV. So many Brits must be oblivious to what's happening.

"Watching CNN" is now trending highly on Twitter in the UK.

CNN have their crew and reporters outside the WH in amongst the protesters. Incredible pictures.
