It seems that from now on, so the Six gets its rehearsal time, we will get Your Questions Answered every day at 17:45. Which is sad, because the slot used to be occupied by Huw interviewing somebody interesting, but now it's a repeat slot. Sign of the times.

To be fair a lot of those interviews had been moved to the 14:20 or 15:38 slots long before Corona.

Why did they put the logos in this way… Bezos, Pichai, Zuckerburg, Cook but Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon?

Does anybody know what happened to the ‘BBC’ lettering on the front of TVC?

Unless an enthusiast got their hands on them, then they probably went to the local tip.

I suspect the BBC didn't bother to keep them. That BBC logo was only installed on the side of Television Centre after the 1997 corporate rebrand took place and was not the original BBC logo on the side of Television Centre since it first opened in 1960.

Quote from Martin Kempton's TV Studio History website: "I gather they were due to be moved to Broadcasting House but the wind got hold of one of them and it smashed. Oops. Some might say the spirit of the building was fighting back."

As someone who’s always turned to the BBC for news, I have to say the news channel really is rubbish in the evenings nowadays. I know it’s all down to cutbacks but even so. I’ve even started turning to Sky in the evenings after getting home from work for the news, which at least seems to still make an effort at that time of day with Sky News Tonight, presented by Dermot Murnaghan.
Stay alert. Control the virus. Save lives.

That's because it's not the BBC NC anymore in the evenings is it. It's a BBC World produced simulcast, with World output taking priority.

Oh right. I didn't know that.
