Hello everyone Aled here, Head of Programmes at Radio 1. Thank you for all your passion for Scott,  Chris and Radio 1 - the station’s success relies on fans like yourselves caring about radio and

If she's good I'm willing to change my mind, but until proven otherwise can we refer to Maya Jama within the context of Scott's show as the homewrecker?

I used to work at a radio station (not R1, think smaller!) so I have a bit of an insight into this, although I'm sure it varies. Where I worked, around half of the presenters were staff and half

Minor bits and pieces but Danny Howard and Pete Tong's show swaps start from the 3rd April with Danny Howard moving to 9pm and Pete Tong at 11pm. Radio 1 Dance Presents starts at 3am early on the 4th April. An interesting change is Huw's BBC Introducing Show from the 5th April is getting cut to 90 mins with a brand new show called BBC Introducing Dance with Jaguar for half an hour from 12:30am.

From the 6th April-9th April, Arielle and Jordan are teaming up to cover Scott for the week with Cel and Katie covering the chart and Dance Anthems the next day.

Scott Bryan reporting Radio 1 is going to four hour shows next week, with Greg, Scott and Grimmy on daytimes. No more extra shifts for Jordan. Not sure where it leaves specialist shows or earlies either. People also being encouraged to present solo, so maybe we won't hear from Chris for a while (or he'll be working from a different studio/home).

Presumably, it'll be:

6-10 Greg

10-2 Scott

2-6 Grimmy

Official press release here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2020/radio1-coronavirus?at_custom4=6603B6F8-6EB4-11EA-80FD-84333A982C1E&at_custom3=%40bbcpress&at_custom1=[post+type]&at_medium=custom7&at_campaign=64&at_custom2=twitter

They've actually gone 4-7, 7-11, 11-3 and 3-7 instead. Adele stays on. Scott and Clara rotating each week (nothing against Clara but I'd rather have Scott's personality show).

Weekends are 4-7, 7-10 and a mammoth 10-3 daytime show (no idea why they've made it different to weekdays) to be shared between Dev and Alice, Jordan North and yes, Maya Jama, for the whole weekend. Four day week remains.

Will be interesting to hear a five-hour Maya Jamathon. In a way.

Isn’t Scott off next two weeks anyway? Why can’t these presenters present from home like Absolute and Global?

Probably to do with the playout system they use - Absolute, and some Global stations (usually the non-networked ones) use Zetta, which is probably the industry leader for remote presenting. It lets you control the full playout studio from a web browser, if your PC and internet is up to it, it's pretty impressive. 

From what I've heard, Dira isn't the best at a number of fairly basic things, so it wouldn't surprise me if its remote access capabilities were non-existent.

Is Newsbeat still going to happen at the normal times. Also wondering what happens with the Chart and Dance Anthems on Friday. Is the Chart now 2hr 45mins or both are 2hrs?

The Chart shows starting at 3 as does Dance Anthems - I suspect they'll run more of the top 40 from 3-530/545 if Newsbeat still is on, and then Party Anthrms or just have the chart 3-5 and Anthems 5-7? 

Dance Anthems pretty easy have the usual format but longer 3-430 classics 430-6 todays and 6-7 future 

 

One of the community stations I work on has gone to 3 live shows a day only with hour gaps of music between presenters so they don't mix and have instructions not to arrive until 30 mins before broadcast starts I am doing drive tomorrow and Friday which will be weird not seeing anyone although listenership is up 

One of the others I do has gone to live breakfast and drive only rest of it is being done via Myriad anywhere, which is a great bit of kit

They should keep one of the evening shows dropped too like this week?

I know Jack Saunders is recording his from home. I presume Annie may do the same and then only one of RMC will be live in the studio while the others join via audio link? 

I believe all co-presenters, so presumably Chris Stark, one of Matt & Mollie, one of Dev & Alice as well will join via audio link...don't know how they do that?

BBC want all  presenters  to go solo  or join on a audio link. Not sure how it working in terms of details. I am guessing  a phone link. I know the lifehack podcast  has been recorded over Skype.

Looks like Scott is still off next week according to the sounds app schedule 

I think Scott’s on next week but is off the following week which would make sense Clara covering

Its quite easy actually software like cleanfeed is available for such things, I am sure the BBC will set their guys up with a proper link

Actually quite excited about hearing the new schedule tomorrow. I’m really interested to hear what Jordans 4 hour show will be like especially as his is only 2 hours of actual content at the moment anyway. 

Also, I can see on the schedule that the Anthems shows are being repeated on Easter Monday. Thus time an hour for each year from 2000 to 2014. No idea if their will be student radio presenters again though. But looking at the current world situation, I’m guessing not.
