Some standard BBC logic with today’s coronavirus update on BBC1 which was then followed by BBC News. Talk about coronavirus for twenty minutes or so, then go to a break and start the whole thing again. Why not just run through rather than treat them as 2 separate programmes?
I guess they see the coronavirus update as rolling news format with lots of new information coming in all at once, with the News bulletin that follows as a fixed summary of everything that's happened not just in the briefing but all day around the world.
Stay alert. Control the virus. Save lives.
