Axe the 10pm news bulletin on BBC-1 and put it back to 9pm and also Axe the 10.30pm news bulletin on ITV-1 and put it back to 10pm. sign now

We the undersigned demand that the 10pm news bulletin on BBC-1 is axed altogether and you put it back to 9pm and also the 10.30pm news bulletin on ITV-1 is axed altogether and you put it back to 10pm.

The BBC should move their 10pm news bulletin back to 9pm because it had been in that slot from 1963-2000 - 37 years, until Lorraine brightspark Heggessey decided to move it to 10pm. At this moment in time, you now have two drama series on at the same time as each other on both BBC-1 and ITV-1 at 9pm because of the news change and this is no good at all. Whilst there are two drama series on at the same time as each other, half the audience are watching the one on BBC-1 and half the audience are watching the one on ITV-1 and neither are getting the full response they should. Its not fair to either and nine times out of ten its always the BBC-1 drama series that loses out in the ratings, not the ITV-1 one. I'm not saying for one minute by having two drama series on at 9pm that this is the only reason that BBC-1 drama series have been axed altogether because there have been some awful drama series on BBC-1 at 9pm over the last five years, but it doesn't help matters when two similar things clash in the schedules. These days and it has been like this for the last 10 years or so now, you don't judge a programme anymore in terms of what is going on in it, you just judge it in terms of how many people have watched it in total and that is wrong. All programmes should be judged on quality, no matter how many viewers in the millions are watching. Until the 10pm news bulletin on BBC-1 is put back to 9pm, there will always be this problem of two drama series clashing on both BBC-1 and ITV-1 at 9pm and the majority of the British public will tend to go for the drama series on ITV-1 at 9pm because they have been used to a drama series on ITV-1 at that time for donkey's years. This situation needs to be rectified as soon as possible.

Incidentally, the day the BBC moved its 9pm news bulletin to 10pm, it totally destroyed the ITV-1 News at Ten programme. The majority of viewers started to watch the 10pm news bulletin on BBC-1 and took away all the viewers from the ITV-1 News at Ten. In 2002 the ITV-1 News at Ten ended up been axed altogether, supposedly for good, until the Government campaigned to get it back on the air. The campaign worked and it was back on the air 18 months later at 10pm, but we still had this problem of it clashing with the BBC-1 10pm news bulletin when it came back and by now, more and more people were tuning into the 10pm news bulletin on BBC-1 regularly, which meant the ITV-1 News at Ten was still suffering in the ratings, which bosses didn't like at all. In the end ITV bosses decided to revamp the ITV-1 News at Ten, modernised it and moved it to 10.30pm. What a disaster. The new look is bloody awful and has made matters worse because the ratings have now gone completely downhill even more. The old style News at Ten on ITV-1, although losing viewers because of Lorraine Heggessey moving the BBC-1 news bulletin from 9pm to 10pm in the first place, was actually getting more viewers whilst it was clashing with the BBC-1 10pm news bulletin, than it does now it has been revamped and moved to 10.30pm. What ITV bosses don't realise is the only reason News at Ten on ITV-1 lost a certain amount of viewers in the first place was because Lorraine brightspark Heggessey decided to the move the BBC-1 news bulletin from 9pm to 10pm. This meant there were two news bulletins clashing with each other in the schedules and unfortunately it was News at Ten on ITV-1 that suffered because of this.

The BBC needs to scrap its 10pm news bulletin and move it back to 9pm and ITV-1 needs to scrap its revamped 10.30pm news bulletin and revert back to its old style and move it back to 10pm. The one main problem though at present, is you have still got two drama series clashing on both BBC-1 and ITV-1 at 9pm and as I have already said this situation needs rectifying as soon as possible.

Please take this petition very seriously.
