Snooker transmission fault

BBC2 & Red Button (April 2017)

RE
Reboot
Extended break in the snooker coverage there. Cards for both the evening schedule and generic apologies.

Continuity announcer kept referring to the World Championship in "York", not Sheffield, to boot!

Slightly off-topic, but Jason's blooper just after the break was brilliant:

"Ronnie O'Sullivan warming up for his match against... um... Stuart... Shaun Murphy."

*

The way he laughed it off was great, too. "Mark Hendry, thank you very much."

Now officially retired from TV Forum. "When the fun stops, stop."

And STILL saying "the Crucible in York"! Repeatedly!

EDIT: And now they've given up to the point of going to a Coast repeat...

BBC TWO Wales was struggling, going into Daily Politics . There was a long playout of Swan (exceeding its normal length so most of it was one frozen frame) before the Car/Mirror B breakdown slide appeared.

This doesn't apply to Swan but I wonder if the older idents are still available in their original full length durations, ~50s, or are they restricted to maximum 30s? Suspect the latter.
