An issue with the playout of the early evening national weather forecast led to a short technical breakdown on BBC One.
The national weather forecast was due to air immediately after the early evening regional news on BBC One.
Just over a minute of black and silence went out on the BBC One network feed, instead of the national weather.
Many of the English regions cut back to network immediately after their local news programmes and took the period of black and silence.
BBC London remained on its closing shot until an apology caption appeared on the network feed.
Within 15 seconds of the appearance of the apology message, normal service was resumed.
Viewers of BBC One Northern Ireland were oblivious to the fault, as the early evening national weather is not broadcast there. Instead, a quick national weather update is incorporated into the local weather bulletin.
In Scotland, about 10 seconds of black and silence was broadcast immediately after BBC Reporting Scotland. The BBC One Scotland apology graphic then appeared. The announcer provided a quick verbal apology.
Things returned to normal just under a minute-and-a-half later.
BBC One Wales broadcast just over a minute of black and silence before their apology graphic appeared. The channel was back on track about 20 seconds later.
