I hope David Lowe is making a note of all of these.

Here’s late night news bulletin “THE LATEST” on Seven in Australia. It airs weeknights between 10.30pm and 11.30pm

Just under two weeks ago, I wrote about the Earthquake Early Warning system in Japan. At the time, I shared pretty much everything that I knew. But as it turns out, there's more. Much like how UK broadcasters and practice runs for royal deaths, Japanese broadcasters have practice runs for major natural disasters. Nippon TV decided to share some footage from their run through on the 9th February 2018.

The lunchtime news in France experienced some problems last week, though still made it on air with a very polite apology:


Can read a dramatised version of what happened in the Express... https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1402091/France-news-France-TF1-technical-blunder-moment-Marie-Sophie-Lacarrau-vn

...or find out actually what happened in French newspaper La FIgaro https://tvmag.lefigaro.fr/programme-tv/panne-au-13-heures-de-tf1-les-vraies-raisons-du-bug-technique-revelees_0c07f986-7695-11eb-9ea8-48b0d7a02ee9/

Strange that they didn't just simulcast the 1 p.m. news (or rather the second hour of LCI Midi) of their co-owned news channel LCI.

LCI also had issues as they share the same system as TF1.

Weird name, weirder logo.

It says on Wiki that it's been going since 2016. I've never heard of it.

WION appears to be news in English from a South Asian perspective.

There are also rules against live TV simulcasts in France; they can transmit France 2's 8PM news on France Info an hour later, but not at the same time. Apparently though, they can transmit something on TV and radio simultaneously. France Info's short summaries are done this way. It's interesting that TF1 didn't even improvise a quick summary.

Indeed this channel is from India

They got away with simulcasting quite extensively during the initial Covid lockdown so I'd assume that they'd have been able to make the case that it was necessary.
