I would question why it's newsworthy, but us pres fans know how uncommon breakdowns like this are becoming nowadays. I am struggling to believe Phil only found out on Twitter that they were off air. Surely someone must've told him from the gallery and he's just plugging the social media presence.

Stv don't have live ca either but there are automatic systems in place within 1min.

There do have back log of recorded ca by Maggie in case of troubles. There has been few times a live ca has been found during the day. Most likely office staff.

Would UTV have been left in silence in the pre-ITV owned days?
