BBC News blooper of the day

Thursday, June 22, 2017

The BBC News 10 PM news show News at Ten kicked off with some technical difficulties on Tuesday evening, leaving presenter Huw Edwards awkwardly sitting in silence in the studio for about four minutes, on the air.

BBC News editor Paul Royall said a "technical systems crash" caused the delay.
Royall explained that the delay was due to a technical systems crash that happened seconds before the News at Ten was due to air, adding that "hats off" were due to Edwards.

"Director had to switch to back-up system ASAP", he said.

Viewers on BBC One were played saxophone music for part of the delay, while on iPlayer an announcer apologised for the glitch.

The BBC News Channel continued to broadcast Edwards live in the TV studio.
