2pm King Owusu’s Black History Month idents back on ITV
Another week and another ident from the ITV Creates archive.
This week, King Owusu’s idents will be used to link into programmes on the main ITV channel. These idents were last aired in October 2020, as part of Black History Month.
ITV: “King believes that creativity isn’t all about what you make but how you see and how you can use that understanding to inspire you to breathe. This understanding has led him on a very fun and exciting journey that he is now navigating.”

12.30pm Chris “I’ve started so I’ll finish” Mason
With seconds to go before the end of today’s BBC News Special on BBC One, political editor Chris Mason is asked who he thinks might get the foreign secretary job in newly appointed Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s new cabinet.
Chris obviously wants to provide a full answer but presenter Huw Edwards is hearing the countdown to the close of the programme in his ear.
And just when Huw thinks he’s home and dry, Chris throws in an “or…” – leading on to an alternative suggestion for the foreign post.
The camera is already moving to take Chris out of shot – but he’s still in full flow – with Huw politely battling to bring proceedings to a close.
Huw gets there – just about.
2.45pm New logo unveiled for new era of Doctor Who
The BBC has unveiled a new logo for Doctor Who. The new look will be introduced with the start of a “new era” for the show, when it returns in late-2023.
The new series will also see the return of Russell T. Davies, as showrunner. Davies was responsible for Doctor Who’s revival in 2005.
The BBC also announced today that it will partner with Disney Branded Television to “transform Doctor Who into a global franchise for UK audiences and the rest of the world.”
The new episodes will premiere on the BBC and Disney+ beginning in late-2023 for fans all over the world. The show will be produced in Wales by Bad Wolf with BBC Studios Productions.
Russell T. Davies says: “I love this show, and this is the best of both worlds – with the vision and joy of the BBC and Disney+ together we can launch the TARDIS all around the planet, reaching a new generation of fans while keeping our traditional home firmly on the BBC in the UK.”
8pm Behind-the-scenes item on BBC East Midlands Today
BBC East Midlands Today ran a short behind-the-scenes item on this evening’s programme – supposedly prompted by viewer questions about why there’s only been one presenter in studio for the early evening programme in recent weeks.
Presenter Anne Davies started off in the programme’s gallery, introducing us to her director and producer.
She then walked the short distance to the door leading into the main studio. However, the door was firmly shut, with warning notices banning unauthorised personnel, mobile phones and cameras.
Why? Well, a new set is currently under construction in the main studio. The programme is currently based in a small space in an old conference room.
Anne also showed us the small room where the weather is produced.
Clean Feed understands the new set will make its on air debut in December.
With thanks to watchingtv on the Pres Café forum for flagging this item.

8.30pm Internet connection issue leaves “BBC News” text on screen
There was a minor blip near the end of Outside Source this evening, on the BBC News Channel.
It looked as though an internet connection issue cut short a videocall with BBC LGBT Sport Podcast presenter Jack Murley, leaving “BBC News” text on the screen.

10pm Thought you’d seen the back of Oneness?
Oneness made a brief comeback during tonight’s one-off The Love Box in Your Living Room, featuring Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse – but in the form of two spoofs.
We approve of these latest executions.
11.30pm Soothing sounds at bedtime courtesy of Newsnight
With the news that researchers have found that seeing and hearing birds improves our mood, Newsnight provided a soothing end to the programme.
Friday 28th October
6.30pm BBC News date error on Jerry Lee Lewis memoriam graphic
The memoriam graphic for Jerry Lee Lewis shown on this evening’s BBC News at Six contained an unfortunate date error.
Instead of “1935 – 2022”, the graphic had the years shown as “2035 – 2022”.
Saturday 29th October
5.30pm Animating Live/Location bug error on BBC News
The Live/Location bug took on a new animation during this evening’s early evening news programme on BBC One.
Rather than showing the “Live” text and location text alongside each other, we saw the on-screen bug animating between the two elements.
BBC News creative director Chris Cook later confirmed that the unusual animation was an error.
5.45pm BBC Midlands Today moves to temporary studio ahead of upgrade
This evening’s edition of BBC Midlands Today saw the programme broadcast from its new temporary home for first time.
The programme has decamped from its main studio to allow upgrade work to take place over the next couple of months.
Clean Feed understands that the new-look studio will make its on-air debut early in the new year.
