On our wavelength

BBC local news (North West) is not playing.

Was fine watching the national 6 o'clock news but instead of being followed by BBC local news at 18:30 it is showing some old antiques programme with Nigel Havers? Same issue yesterday.

EPG shows 'North West Tonight'

box rebooted - no change

service status shows no problems 

 

what is going on?

There is currently a 48hour strike in the BBC regions - check the regional variations on https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/guide and North West is an affected area.
