Changes to the BBCi Weather service

Urgh, thank goodness it’s the weekend. It’s been a particularly long week due to the launch of the revised BBCi weather service on digital terrestrial and satellite which, for us, wasn’t quite as smooth as I would have liked - hence why I was still at work last night at 8pm. Especially annoying given I’d worked late the previous night and had hoped to go home early on Friday to compensate! Still the changes are done and the service is up there for people to see.

A while ago, someone emailed me to ask what was going to replace the old quarter screen BBC Parliament service on digital terrestrial television (aka Freeview). At the time I just said that something was coming, and that I couldn’t say more.

Yep, it’s been snowing, which for the news means sending countless reporters out into the middle of nowhere to get cold to report on the fact that schools are closed and roads are slippery.
