I have read there are separate news bulletins at 10.00am, 11.00am, 12.00pm, 3.00pm, 4.00pm and 11.00pm - what is the length of these bulletins? I assume they are then repeated until the next live bulletin or the next RTE One News bulletin?

Five minutes or so, usually repeated between segments from shows like Nationwide, recorded weather forecasts, repeats of the children's News2day, weather/news/history photo galleries.

Back in the late 80s and early 90s at the BBC, Michael Buerke used to do the One O'Clock News and Nine O'Clock News in the same day. Must save money.

That's nuts. if the schools are off for mid-term, the target audience will be more likely to be watching TV.
