NRK and TV 2 clear the broadcast schedule after Queen Elizabeth’s death

NRK and TV 2 clear the broadcast schedule after Queen Elizabeth’s death

On Thursday evening, Buckingham Palace informed that Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain has died, aged 96. The news came a few hours after the palace issued a press release saying the Queen’s doctors were concerned about her state of health.

According to NTB, the queen has been struggling with health problems recently, which has led to several missions having to be cancelled.

Queen Elizabeth became the longest-serving monarch on the British throne ever. Earlier this year, her 70 years on the throne were marked with a series of celebrations, including a grand concert outside Buckingham Palace.

The incident was covered in an extended edition of “Dagsrevyen”, which, among other things, has led to the Diamond League final being moved from NRK1 to NRK2.

– The news will be fully broadcast on NRK1 up to and including Kveldsnytt. All other programs between Dagsrevyen and Kveldsnytt are cancelled, says the media manager Arne Helsingen in NRK for Campaign.

The debate ends
The evening’s edition of “The Debate”, which was scheduled to start at 21.20 and deal with the controversies surrounding Princess Märtha Louise’s patronage in light of her fiancé Durek Verrett’s statements about alternative medicine, was thus taken off the schedule. This was confirmed by presenter Fredrik Solvang on Instagram.

– The debate is canceled tonight due to Queen Elizabeth II’s passing. We will have to come back to the discussion about Durek Verrett and Princess Märtha Louise another time, he writes.

Helsinki in NRK does not rule out that there may be more changes.

– Will there be irregularities in the broadcasting schedule for NRK in the future as well?

– We don’t have a complete overview of it now, but there will be things going on in Great Britain for the next ten days, so we will follow this up to the funeral and the accession to the throne. But exactly what changes it will lead to is a bit difficult to determine now, says Helsingen.

TV 2 is also clearing its broadcast schedule
TV 2 is also making changes on Thursday evening, and went simulcasting with its biggest TV channels right after the news of the Queen’s death.

– Right after the message came out, we chose to simulcast with TV 2 and the TV 2 Nyhetskanalen until 11pm tonight. The TV 2 Nyhetskanalen will also broadcast throughout the night. We also run without advertising until 10 p.m., says TV 2’s press manager, Jan-Peter Dahlto Campaign.

This means that both “Truls a la Hellstrøm” and “Petter and the survivors” are based on the evening’s broadcast schedule.

– The scheduled programs will return to the broadcast schedule at a later time, but will be available on TV 2 Play where viewers will find the programs centrally located tonight, says Dahl.

Dahl says the channel will make ongoing assessments of what they are going to do about changes in the coming hours and days.

– We will assess this against the news coming from London and make a decision on whether there are more simulcasts between TV 2 and TV 2 Nyhetskanalen in connection with this. But it is natural that there will be changes in the linear broadcasting schedule when there is such a big world news, he says.
