The BBC is to drop the Saturday night lottery draws from BBC1 as part of a new 3 year deal with Camelot which will see them be available on the iPlayer only.
This is the info broadcast supplies if you don't pay £22 a month:
BBC1 is to drop the National Lottery draw from its Saturday night schedule and will air it on iPlayer after the corporation extended its contract with Camelot for a further three years.
I think that sums it up really.
I guess though the lottery quizzes will presumably continue (I'm sure a recommission of one of the Nick Knowles vehicles was recently announced), so there aren't really going to be noticeable changes to the schedule, although if the finances were better it would be great to take them out and freshen up the schedules.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
