Not many half hour filler shows available nowadays to the BBC. Aunties Bloomers used to do that trick, and that would be rather apt but of course they rush off air so probably enough time for Pointless. They even had just the one trailer before the news.

How did the news channel cope with the last hour?

They've been airing Celebrity Mastermind repeats at teatime in recent weeks so could have slotted one of those in.

I also wonder how the news channel coped, as they went from Game set and match to Kate Silverton in no more than a minute.

I think there's been the odd 45-minute Celebrity Pointless. So there's scope for 6.10pm.

Don't think they did one yesterday but in previous years they had done Children in Need specials on the day of the telethon so that would seem suitable, although probably to risky as it is bound to have references to Wogan which may not serm appropriate now.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?
