Mention from the Instagram page comparing things from 1985 and now.
There's no need for this, really. They do a lot of pre-recording these days so just because Mwaksy wasn't doing much this week doesn't mean she just turned up to sit around, they may well have been recording another episode on the same day (they were in the big studio which presumably they want to make use of).
I think it was the snotty Pass Notes in The Guardian about Adam that mentioned Adam has said he's going to be doing Blue Peter half the week and his vlogging and so on the other half, so clearly Blue Peter isn't a full-time job these days and they're happy to have four presenters if it gives them flexibility. Presumably they're not paid anywhere near as much as they used to so they want other jobs as well.
Is this one of the first times they've actively promoted Newsround with a trail? Can't say I've seen one before.
