BBC Blocks


We received complaints from some viewers unhappy that BBC Breakfast was not broadcast.


During the time BBC Breakfast would normally have been broadcast, the huge story of the US Presidential Election was very much still developing. President-elect Donald Trump’s speech was around 8:00am, and we felt that our audiences would expect us to stay with our special programming for the most comprehensive coverage of this historic event.

BBC Breakfast did advise viewers of the schedule change via Twitter, and the programme was back on air as usual the following morning.
