Probably a silly question, but why is BBC1 running so late this evening? (MOTD started six minutes later than billed.) Can’t see anything in the schedule that would have delayed it.
They put a 35 and a half minute MBB into a 30 minute slot
It was the same on Christmas Day, but in that case MBB was in a much longer slot to allow it to start very late and finish on time.
I think MOTD was the problem .
They seemed to be trying to maintain the fiction that MOTD stated by 1105pm even though they knew that with all the programme lengths there was no way it could .
Incidentally isn't showing 'The Sound of Music' twice on BBC Television on both 1st Jan (BBC ONE 2.30pm) and 2nd Jan (BBC FOUR 7pm) taking things a tad too far for 2020?
