I believe the number of minutes of PEBs allocated depends on how many candidates a party is putting up at the election.

Or maybe one was for the local elections, one was for the Euro ones.


The duration can be whatever the party wants as their PEB. The number of broadcasts, dates of broadcast, and number of repeats are determined by party size and dominance in the current political landscape.

BBC Northern Ireland are running a couple of trails at the moment where the green NI logo morphs into a ship, to tie in with their coverage of the Tall Ships coming to Belfast this week.

Also, Next/Later menus on BBC1NI now have a nautical compass as a background, complete with ocean sound effects.

Good to see them making an effort.

Was just looking for this thread to post caps!

BBC Northern Ireland have updated their credit squeezes today, so they're now more in keeping with the network design.

I'm not a credit squeeze fan, but in fairness they do look smart, and I suppose it's good that they're ringing the changes after a couple of years with their previous design (which I actually thought worked quite well)

BBC One Northern Ireland's announcer posed a question of his own tonight in the link into 'Great Unanswered Questions': "Julian Simmons - what's the point?" Certainly took me by surprise.

Laughing Who was the guilty party, if their identity can be disclosed?

And will Jules strike back later tonight?


Roy Willighan was on duty.

A refreshing change to hear something ever so slightly controversial between the programmes, rather than the usual bland nonsense.

I noticed this evening - as you do - that David Olver tended to refer to "BBC One Northern Ireland", whereas he has long tended just to say "BBC One".

A bit 'anorak' of me, I know, but there you go!
