BBC Parliament
Jul 12th, 2018, 2:42pm
 
"BBC Parliament

There will be a major change to BBC Parliament with what the BBC has described as a 'changed schedule' in the latest set of BBC cutbacks.

The channel will still broadcast live and replayed coverage of Parliament and the devolved parliaments and assemblies, but it will no longer make bespoke programmes.

In the biggest change in the channel's history, it will not air in the weeks when the UK Parliament or the devolved Parliaments and assemblies are not sitting.

With the UK Parliament and the devolved assemblies and chambers increasingly live streaming their proceedings, the BBC says it will signpost these livestreams alongside its journalism."


The site also includes changes to BBC political coverage.

The Official BBC Media Centre announcement is to found here.

"A new team giving better digital and social coverage - including podcasts - of politics and parliament for audiences who are increasingly getting their news online, especially on mobiles. In an era of concerns about misinformation and ‘echo chambers’ this is designed to bring trusted impartial political coverage to younger audiences

A new daily political programme - Politics Live - which will replace Daily Politics from Monday to Friday.

A new BBC One half hour stand-alone Sunday Politics programme for each of the nations and English regions, replacing the ‘opts’ currently shown within the Sunday Politics. This will now be shown immediately after Andrew Marr. The UK-wide network edition of Sunday Politics will no longer be broadcast after this month (July).

A changed schedule for BBC Parliament: the channel will still broadcast live and replayed coverage of Parliament and the devolved parliaments and assemblies, but will no longer make bespoke programmes and will not air in the weeks when the UK Parliament or the devolved Parliaments and assemblies are not sitting.

Politics Live will be presented by Jo Coburn four days a week and Andrew Neil will present a special extended programme on Wednesdays, to include PMQs. The new 45-minute programme (One hour 45 minutes on Wednesdays) will offer viewers a fast-moving, conversational show, featuring a blend of political interviews, discussion and video content designed to be shared digitally, ensuring Politics Live connects with the lives of people around the country."

Should have been dumped ages ago instead of BBC3 in the first place!
