Does BBC Radio 5 live take Local Radio’s religious reflections during the overnight BBC Radio London simulcast? In London that is on FM only, Early Breakfast continues on digital.

I think the BBC London simulcasts have ended now haven't they? Overnights has gone back to as it was before - with Up All Night on 5 Live and the local stations taking that.

The situation is confused by two things which were supposed to have happened which got superseded by the emergency schedule changes. Firstly Radio London was supposed to have ditched their overnight programming and replaced it with 5 Live, and secondly Dotun Adebayo was replacing Rhod Sharp on Up All Night.

However everything changed and Dotun ended up on Radio London on 5 Live which confused the situation

That’s on weekdays only, Radio London still produces the weekend overnights from 1 to 6 am. So I am wondering if 5 live go to religious reflections at 0550, or stick with Duncan Barkes until 0600.

It's only an issue on Sunday Mornings as Saturdays at 5:00 is 5 Live Boxing.

Listening back to this morning's show on BBC iPlayer - which is the BBC London 94.9 FM version, at 49:45 Duncan Barkes pauses and says that Sikh Reflections will start shortly on BBC Local Radio. There's then an announcement about frequency splitting as his show continues on BBC London on DAB and presumably also on BBC 5 Live.

Line of Duty is even better second time around. Shame it has took a global pandemic for stations to get a bit smarter with their repeat strategy.

And how in god's name did the first 3 series end up on BBC2 when it later turned out to be one of the country's best shows! and it started in the same summer as the Olympics 2012!

Presumably because it was thought to be too complex for your average BBC 1 numpty to follow?

The ending of S3 was spoilt for me, by the last 15 minutes that was a bolt on, cops'n'robbers style chase. Perhaps preparation for moving S4 to BBC 1

I don't get why Line of Duty starting on BBC Two is a bad thing, if anything, it allowed it to grow at its own pace.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

It's been fun watching Line of Duty from the start as I never watched it first time round. Didn't realise the first series was filmed in Birmingham and it's a shame production moved to Belfast.

Spotted the apartment block I used to live in in episode 2 as they filmed in the block next door, and the Queen's Arms on Newhall Street where the filmed the pub scenes was my local for a while.

Looks like they filmed the police station scenes (Central CID) - at least the exterior scenes - in the old Municipal Bank (which at the time was a branch of Lloyds) and House of Sport (now demolished) on Broad Street.

More smart repeats / buy-ins - Harlots from 2017 on BBC2 tonight. Originally from ITV Encore and Hulu. In my opinion this is exactly what the BBC should be doing in normal times to fill some hours.

I was quite amused though by one shot that showed the mountain range that's just to the west of Belfast in a couple of shots! Putting an Ordnance Survey Landranger map of Birmingham (something pretty useless for identifing street and building names!) on the interview room wall fools no one!
