Thursday 14th April
7pm Minor sound mishap near the end of the BBC News at Six
There was a problem with the sound at the start of the weather forecast in the final minutes of tonight’s BBC News at Six. When George Alagiah handed across to Stav Danaos, it seemed as though we got a brief burst of the audio from a rehearsal for Sportsday on the BBC News Channel.
That error was quickly corrected but we still couldn’t hear the weather presenter very well. It took about 15 seconds or so for Stav’s microphone to be faded up.
Thanks to Paul R. Jackson for flagging this technical mishap.

1.30pm BBC News Channel presenter suffers brief brain freeze
Shaun Ley’s propensity for an on air sneeze got him a lot of attention during the week – and even a mention on last night’s edition of Have I Got News for You.
On Saturday lunchtime, he triggered a chuckle or two here at Clean Feed Towers when he briefly got in a muddle about the location of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv.
Sunday 17th April
11.30pm Weather bulletin inadvertently interrupted on BBC News Channel
There was a brief mishap during the 9.55am weather bulletin on the BBC News Channel. The duty director appeared to inadvertently cue the next event in the middle of Darren Bett’s forecast.
The error was quickly undone and we returned to a slightly bewildered-looking weather presenter, who quickly resumed the bulletin.
Thanks to James Vertigan for flagging this item.
Apologies for the voice/audio sync issue in the clip below – this was due to a fault on our side.
7pm Switching error briefly interrupts programmes on ITV and Channel 4
Reports on social media this afternoon indicate a potential switching issue which briefly interrupted programmes on ITV and Channel 4.
ITV’s coverage of the FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Crystal Palace was interrupted briefly – twice – by BBC One’s output.
This Twitter user captured one of the interruptions on ITV:
From what we can glean, the issue may have been restricted to the Freeview platform. We have our own recording of the live football on ITV, as shown on ITV London on DSAT and there was no interruption there:
Clean Feed also received reports that Channel 4’s output on Freeview was interrupted briefly by the snooker coverage being shown on BBC Two – again this happened twice.
