[00:13:34] PROGRAMME: Ian McCaskill presents a national BBC Weather bulletin.
You’ll notice that Ian gets cut off a little prematurely. It’s not clear if Ian uncharacteristically overran or if NC1 got their timings wrong. Our money is on the latter.
The new automated Network Control areas went live a few months earlier and, in the junction that followed this weather bulletin, we’re almost certain Ian’s voice can be heard during the second trail (follow the link below to view that junction) – suggesting his microphone was somehow put live.
So, it looks like there were some gremlins at work here.
