Brilliant! Did you try turning it off and on again? And was not missed So did Channel 5.any connection? Probably woke overloads North Yorkshire & part of Teesside haven’t had any tv since August with the Bilsdale mast having a fire, if you have a smart tv that’s great but some elderly esp in care don’t ! I don’t see u reporting on that issue! TV is their only company they have if they are on their own
And happiness and public mental lifted during this time. Maybe news propaganda networks need to be turned off from time to time, it’s a great idea, give us little people a break from their/your BS. Does it run on fuel, or it's just a coincidence? Shame. Think karma got the wrong one. Should have been you BBC after causing the 'fuel run' due to you style of reporting !
Many in the north east have had freeview outage since 10th August and won’t return until 5th October. Bit bigger story than a few minutes on Saturday !! bilsdale Yes mine as gone off 😡
