    It’s been confirmed that Five News is launching early.

    They are now doing a 1 minute 9pm bulletin on both the 1st and 2nd of January. Before that they were to start at 5.30pm on the 3rd. The 5.30pm bulletin will still be the first full length show, but will be preceeded by these 1 min updates.

    It was all confirmed yesterday. I guess this is because of the disaster in Asia at the moment.

    What’s going to happen with Julie? She is supposed to be presenting the new evening bulletins and she is currently in Phuket. Do you think she will come back or present from Phuket..?

    Don’t know ,will we find out who is the cover for the main anchors at Five news in the first week. I’d expect Julie to do reports for Five out there rather than presenting it .

    Otherwise IMO this hasn’t been a good week for Five news , the biggest news event in years and they are in no position to report it , it really isn’t good enough.

    I don’t yet think we should make assumptions like this. At the moment Five News is running as normal with ITN. From tomorrow they will be produced by Sky. I don’t know any reason why such a big story should be a problem for Five? It is not as if they’re not ready for the launch.

    My main gripe was aimed at Five and ITN , twenty minutes of news bulletins a day hasn’t been adequate over the past few days.

    I’m hoping that Five and Sky can ‘hit the ground running’ and come up with a news special in the coming week and have some Five reporters reporting from the countries affected by the disaster as well.

    So they originaly had no news of any kind scheduled for 72 hours from tonight? I looked in the Radio Times and there was nothing until 5.30pm Monday.

    five news from ITN has been running effectively a skeleton crew since they stopped doing full 30 min programmes a couple of weeks ago before Christmas, because they are winding down the service, and also because the five news staff that are moving with five news to Sky have gone.

    All they are (or were, since the last ITN five news bulletin has been and gone) doing is using information from news wires, and pictures from ITN Core and video news agencies, no reports from any correspondents.

    So if anyone is to blame, it is five for switching to Sky News at an unfortunate time

    Re. Fives one minute news update at 9pm tonight. I was hoping that they could have done more this weekend and produced some more news output.

    Perhaps i’m being unfair and do not see ‘the full picture’ but I am disappointed by this break in Five news’s coverage.

    Yesterday and today they could have carried simultaneous coverage of Sky News for 30 minutes or so similer to when they used to have 30 minutes of Sunrise in the mornings. They wouldn’t have had to do any extra work for this.
