On a Sunday it’s a short bulletin at 18.35 and at least this had something important as the main feature, the new report published by the UN on climate change.
However, they lead with the lurid story of two dead prostitutes, allegedly murdered by a 29-year-old banker in Hong Kong, followed by a story about a pilot being killed in an air crash by a Virgin Galactic test aircraft. These are tabloid stories and hardly headline news.
Whatever, maybe it’s arguable that is a good way to sandwich the meatier stories, and at least Krishnan Guru-Murthy did his best to goad some outrage out of the seemingly stage-managed optimism of Professor Joanna Haigh, Co-Director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change & Environment from Imperial College, London.
