Did Ash-Sharqiyah show the fireworks?Happy New Years, folks! Ended up watching on BBC World News, they joined a couple of minutes before midnight. Interesting that we got the bongs but no Westminster Quarters.
Ash-Sharqiyah also signed off at 0015 GMT, 0415 Dubai time. The sign-off sounded something like "God willing, goodnight".
Also CNN for New York Time Square but without Kathy it is excruciating, absolute torture.Well thats it for most of us. 0100 - Cape Verde but unlikley to do anything on the web stream assuming its still up. 0200 is Rio for anyone still awake.
BY my reckoning on a quick count up its been 14 New Years this time so far. Some nice surprises - Pyongyangs syncronised drone display was fab. Nepal was a bonus. India was a dire disappointment this year - lets hope for better next year
Didn't check, I joined BBC World News for midnight but given that they signed off *after* London fireworks there is a chance that did - they did have a reporter present in London - could see London Eye in the distance(and of course on-air graphics also saying London).Did Ash-Sharqiyah show the fireworks?
France 24 is usually better than BBC World, who can be odd at times.
Same procedure EVERY yearOh, same procedure next NYE?
