Slot Watch

Users of the BBC News app can now try out the latest leap forward into the Future of News: The Vertical Video Experience.

My items on the end of "Ten To Watch", the previous incarnation of this specially-made set of short, portrait-shaped videos, seem to have been premature. Under the new care of Controller, BBC News Mobile and Online, Fiona Campbell, it has regenerated like an improved Dr Who: "We’ve changed the name as we didn’t want to restrict ourselves to just 10 videos – it may be more or less depending on the day’s news."  Readers will be delighted to know that the list will be "curated".

"Our second vertical video offering, BBC Stories - personal, emotive, immersive, best of video - will come out in early December."
