BBC News Channel TOTH titles go AWOL

The BBC News Channel’s top-of-the-hour headlines and title sequence didn’t go quite as planned at 11pm last night.

The director cut back to presenter Martine Croxall at her desk, to introduce the remaining headlines, when the headline bed stopped suddenly and the camera zoomed out.

Martine finished reading the remaining headlines to camera. As the TOTH title sequence failed to appear, Martine introduced the lead story and then continued the programme as normal.

It’s unclear what caused the issue.
