This has been on the cards for years
They considered creating a slot on BBC Two but that wouldn't have been ideal considering that it would clash with Newsnight. Didn't go anywhere from there until today. Since some of the BBC One content post-10.30 is mostly filler, it makes sense to create a slot that way.
I mean - this is long overdue and a much better proposition than mish-mashing content across BBC One and Two at random times.
