9.50pm RTÉ announces Aertel closure
RTÉ has announced that its teletext service Aertel will cease transmissions next Thursday.

Tuesday 3rd October
10.15pm BBC One North playout glitch
A minor playout error resulted in a change of announcer during a BBC Action Line announcement at the end of EastEnders tonight on BBC One North.
It looks like BBC One North went in circuit a little late and caught the network announcer initially.
For those who don’t know: a number of regions in Northern England (collectively) receive dedicated BBC One continuity on weekday evenings (BBC One North).
