If this holds, how will this affect the schedules tonight? I guess everything will be delayed in about 15 minutes or so?

But with EE at the awkward time of 22-25 minutes things will get a little awkward around 9:55 ish

It's up there with The Family Brain Games nightmare from a couple of years ago. Makes you wonder just how easy it is to wrestle any kind of control back from the automation (assuming that's what's gone wrong).

It’s a bit odd not to restart the programme. I imagine it will get a repeat airing in a late night slot.

With the Robert Rinder thing on at 9:00 I assume Would I lie to You will be dropped and replaced with filter

Wonder if the Wales and Northern Ireland showing will run smoothly after Eastenders.

They should re-run it at 8:30pm when it goes out in Northern Ireland and Wales anyway. Amazed they let it run having missed the first 15 minutes or so.

Very unusual for BBC One Scotland to remain with the network continuity once things were seriously unravelling. They’d normally paper over the cracks pretty rapidly, even without a clean feed.

Isn't there any evidence of any attempted switch to a DR facility?

We got the the Northern Ireland VT clock here in Scotland before quickly changing to the breakdown slide.

Sound was quite ropey from the get go.

We might have to drop the out before the conclusion if they don’t want the schedule to be delayed.

If they do just let it play out in full, it’s going to cause issues for Wales and NI who are showing their own programming who will have to find time to fill until EastEnders.

Also worth observing that North East & Cumbria are scheduled to opt out of WILTY at 8:30pm.

There was a white screen so potentially.
