BBC News Pres: Apr 2023 - Present (News Channel/BBC One)

I'll admit I don't watch the channel very often but it sounds like the channel doesn't cover more than 2-3 stories in an hour!

When there are more stories+packages on a 6 minute WS bulletin or even 2min R4 summary surely there's something that's gone wrong.

I think over on the World Service, Newshour manages to cover at least around 7 or 8 stories in 45mins with a mixture of packages and interviews, whilst The Newsroom covers around 4/5 in 20 minutes.
WS has harder "hard posts" than NC too! If presenters overrun they just get cut off on all feeds - it happened today to the veteran Julian Marshall.

Especially now that there aren't radio-specific reporters anymore I imagine nearly all packages have visual footage attached to them. What's stopping them from showing these rather than putting out what sounds like continual inane, inconsequential pontification.

At school they taught me how to be
So pure in thought and word and deed
They didn't quite succeed...

For some reason, the intro wasn`t changed to this version. Even some regions (like Scotland) re-rendered the globe on their intros.

Ahhh. Just looked at them more closely and you’re right. No orange at all. They look much better so as you say it’s odd they’re not used for the main titles.

I just hope that the reason is - together with the temporary nature of the circle titles of the specific programmes - this points to proper new titles soon.

But if they’re doing that why did they create new graphics for the screens?

Volunteering. It's #GoodForYou!

One day I saw the news channel devoted almost a full bulletin to Gaza, then briefly talked about the 1994 Rwandan genocide, and the news ended. It’s not more informative than a hourly radio bulletin, even than a shorter Newsbeat update.

I’m fine with formats other than packages but I don’t get why they talk that much especially when there aren’t so many significant developments. 5 Live also doesn’t run packages but they do much better.

A return in May at the same time as the News at One moves to Salford? Could Martine finally get a role she deserves? Ben Brown is back on the News Channel ane Jane Hill is more often on the Six and Ten now so it could leave a space for Martine if she’s willing to go to Salford.

Hasn’t it been said the One’s move to Salford is still a few months away. The extension to 60 minutes doesn’t fully work until Doctors ends in December.

The ad for chief presenter in Salford went out last week. Think it also states they may be on the news channel for 3 hours.

I guess the election may affect the plans for the One - I think sometimes it's extended during election periods anyway.
