BBC Radio Bristol reports a day in detail

BBC Radio Bristol has announced plans to run a 24-hour rolling news format from 8am this Thursday to ‘capture life in the West’ in a ‘minute-by-minute broadcasting marathon.

The station will work closely with emergency services as well as ordinary people going about their daily lives to provide an detailed look at things going on in Bristol, Bath and the West Country every day.

Managing Editor, Tim Pemberton said: “This is a great opportunity for our listeners to get a complete picture of how life unfolds in the region over a 24-hour period. At BBC Radio Bristol we are all very excited by the challenge of reporting real life, in detail, just as it happens. We are extremely grateful for the cooperation from all the emergency services and other partners in the West. We are also indebted to BBC network radio and our regional colleagues from BBC Points West, because without them pulling off this feat of broadcasting would be impossible.”

The ‘Minute by Minute – How The West Is Done’ special runs from 8am Thursday to 9am Friday. There’ll also be live minute by minute updates on the BBC Bristol website, and a one hour highlights programme on Saturday morning at 8am.
