There was an announcement on the Click page on Facebook that they will be on BBC2 every Monday at 10:30am from the 14th. I assume the rest of the week will be made up of other News Channel :30 programmes?


A good use of time IMO. Some of the back half-hour programmes can be really good - too good to be shunted in the weekend schedule of the News Channel.

The same can be surely said for some CBBC shows though.

There are also a lot of complaints when they get shunted for rolling news, and it will be nice to view the programme without the DOG/ticker. I think even the iPlayer version still has the BBC News logo for some reason.
All iPlayer programmes carry either a channel logo or a generic BBC logo.

I don't get the comparison?

The daytime controller said in an interview in Radio Times they're also hoping to show the complete set of David Attenborough "Life In..." programmes on BBC2 in 2013 too.


Yep, that'll be starting very soon.

All he said that was some CBBC shows are too good to not get shown on BBC1 or 2, just like some of the BBC News channel programmes.

I know what he said, but I still don't get the comparison. CBBC is a dedicated channel to a dedicated age range, with its viewers generally sticking to that dedicated channel, hence why CBBC shows aren't shown on BBC One and Two. BBC Two has a much more similar target audience to BBC News, but people are much more likely to catch Click or otherwise in a daytime slot on the former than a weekend slot the latter.

Forgive me if it's been mentioned elsewhere, although it's not quite Daytime, from the night of the 14th January, Sign Zone will permanently be on BBC Two, usually starting around 12.20am, BBC One will simply be going to the News Channel earlier, on some nights before 12.30am.

That makes sense I suppose, though it would be good if BBC1 could hold out until at least 1am to switch to the news channel (and later on Fri/Sat). Also surely it can't be too difficult to schedule late nights in such a way they hit an hour or half hour junction rather than crashing in mid-hour.

You mean in the top left? Yes but Click leaves on the BBC News Channel DOG instead which is opaque and has a solid red background - much more intrusive.

I've really enjoyed watching the early morning b/w films this weekend on BBC2, makes a nice change. I particulary enjoyed They Flew Alone this morning with Anna Neagle.

Here's hoping BBC2 continue to show the b/w classics on Saturday and Sunday mornings in the coming weeks Smile
