New BBC 6Music schedule
With a plan in place for its television output, the broadcaster announced that shows on Radio 1 are going to be extended in a bid to restrict the number of presenters in the studios. Over at 6Music, the network will operate with an amended, streamlined weekend schedule. The schedule change will take effect from Monday 30 March. There will also be a weekly rotation of presenters during the midmorning and afternoon slot. A new series called Life on Lockdown will share the experiences of those in isolation around the globe. Another new series, titled Fallout, will explore long-term implications of the current crisis while Viral Exposure, will examine how the virus is exposing and exacerbating underlying pressures in many of the countries it has hit. However, from now until the end of April, The Archers will reduce from six to five episodes per week. The omnibus will continue to broadcast on Sundays, but it will be shorter. Follow Us.
BBC 6 Music has been described as a "dedicated alternative music station". She claimed that "men tend to be more interested in the intellectual side of the music, the tracks, where albums have been made, that sort of thing". The studios are located on the ground floor of Dock House. The Sunday Times reported that following the public outcry over the proposed closure, 6 Music would be rebranded as Radio 2 Extra, retaining a similar playlist but broadcasting for only 12 hours a day  but Tim Davie, head of audio and music at the BBC, denied this was a possibility. Five months after rumours of closure first emerged, the BBC Trust announced that it was not convinced by the BBC Executive's plans and that the station would not be closed. In the first quarter of some BBC radio services, including 6 Music, were part of an efficiency review conducted by John Myers.
