Friday evening’s 7pm BBC One junction got off to a bad start with a trail for BBC Headroom cued in from the wrong point, causing a VT clock to appear on air, counting down from 10.
As the BBC Headroom trail was running 10 seconds late, the on-air result was that we appeared to crash out of the trail and into the next event – a promo for Top Gear.
The error would not have been seen by viewers in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, where the channel has separate playout arrangements.
