Equally I'd like to know what the outside sources NET NORTH, MLM DTT and BMN SAT are

Is Net North a north version of BBC One?


MLM DTT is off air Emley Moor


I'm guessing therefore that BMN is Belmont.


Yes,

Possibly the 'off air' D-Sat feed of Hull

Ian White did all 3 of today’s Look North bulletins, here he is with a sneak peak at presfax in the top corner

What’s “BBC1 EMERGENCY MENU”? Is that what Network always show if a region fails to opt out?

Looks like it has a duration of zero, the following symbol starts at the same time.

I assume it's the menu slide that they use if the news fails to appear on time.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Kind of like the menu that appeared when the BAFTAs failed to turn up on BBC One last year?

And the one they used when the Studio E went berserk for the Ten. My guess is they drop it into the schedule with 0 duration before live events, it usually just gets skipped but there will be a way to get it on air quickly if required.
Write that down in your copybook now.

And note it says ‘Emergency Menu Tuesday’ so it’ll be a menu of tomorrow night’s programmes, which someone will have to create each day, and like others have said it has a duration of 0.


You can see the running order of the bulletin as well, 2 reports, 3 more quick headlines, one with a clip, and then the weather.

Not sure if they would necessarily need to create it manually, in this day and age they should be able to automate it, just like football graphics taking a feed of scores from the PA (or whoever) or should be possible to automatically generate a graphic based on a feed of the schedule.

Although I wouldn't be surprised if they do it manually...

You’d probably want to create it manually or else you might get non-programmes like the weather, or the National Lottery update appearing on it.

He’ll be missed on Look North

I knew he’d be going to bigger and better things soon

NWT is also one small step away from going national, via Breakfast

Strictly speaking that's not Presfax, as it's not generated on Ceefax-era kit. I guess the name has stuck despite an upgrade...

The name Presfax predated the teletext looking version by many years


That only came about when they moved to the Broadcast Centre, prior to that it was a basic black and white terminal type display. All the suites at TVC had teletext look displays called the SSD, but they didn't leave the building as far as I know.

'Presfax' dates back to the days of the manual galleries for NC1 and 2. There was a Presfax Operator who sat in the gallery entering and updating the information
