Doesn’t feel real atm. All happened so fast. Condolences to her family and friends. For millions of people she is all they will ever have known as Queen including my parents who were both born after her coronation.
When Philip died both BBC 1 and 2 had rolling coverage and reaction to his death and cancelled every single show scheduled on those channels for a day or two. Why both main channels of the main broadcaster needed to show coverage was beyond me and complete overkill. The BBC even created a page specifically for people to complain about their coverage of his death. Have one of the two channels dedicated to coverage if you must but both channels at the same time is completely unnecessary. When the day comes that the Queen dies, it’ll be the same thing but for longer than a couple of days.
I'm not British but I thought BBC had several channels?
They do, but when Phillip died they cut off all broadcasts on all channels, and told people to watch BBC one for coverage.
Despite the most complaints any TV broadcast has ever had, they said they'd do even more of it when the Queen died.
