On the official BBC One schedules page they have the BBC News at One on Christmas Day at 12.40 and BBC News at Ten at 11.35pm. Surely they did not have to have these titles, just BBC News would have been fine?
Because the Weekend News exists as a brand, it means using a generic BBC News brand for a handful of days a year, with all the issues that involves with making sure it has the correct rights for iPlayer and so on, or just keeping the same branding for the news bulletins on a weekday. Obviously they don't use it on air.
That actually brings me to a question I've had for ages, why doesn't Final Score end up on iPlayer.
I know it is very unlikely anyone would rewatch it, but usually the other two (Final Score NI and Sportscene Results) end up there.
Is it just the interviews with the Premier League managers stopping it?
