Piano music was played instead. A weekly Children's Newsreel was inaugurated on 23 Aprilto aroundreceivers.

The report proposed that the head of television news should take control away from radioand that the television service should have a proper newsroom of its own, with an editor-of-the-day.
A newsroom was created at Alexandra Palace, television reporters were recruited and given the opportunity to write and voice their own scripts—without the "impossible burden" of having to cover stories for radio too. The World at Onea lunchtime news programme, began on 4 October on the then Home Service, and the year before News Review had started on television.
News Review was a summary of the week's news, first broadcast on Bbc world business report scripts, 26 April  on BBC 2 and harking back to the weekly Newsreel Review of the Week, produced fromto open programming on Sunday evenings—the difference being that this incarnation had subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing.
As this was the decade before electronic caption generation, each superimposition "super" had to be produced on paper or card, synchronised manually to studio and news footagecommitted to tape during the afternoon, and broadcast early evening. Thus Sundays were no longer a quiet day for news at Alexandra Palace.
News Review and Westminster the latter a weekly review of Parliamentary happenings were "colourised" shortly after.
However, much of the insert material was still in black and white, as initially only a part of the film coverage shot in and around London was on colour reversal film stockand all regional and many international contributions were still in black and white. Colour facilities at Alexandra Palace were technically very limited for the next eighteen months, as it had only one RCA colour Quadruplex videotape machine and, eventually two Pye plumbicon colour telecines —although the news colour service started with just one.

The newsreader would present to camera while sitting on the edge of a desk; behind him staff would be seen working busily at their desks. This period corresponded with when the Nine O'Clock News got its next makeover, and would use a CSO background of the newsroom from that very same camera each weekday evening.
News on radio was to change in the s, and on Radio 4 in particular, brought about by the arrival of new editor Peter Woon from television news and the implementation of the Broadcasting in the Seventies report.
These included the introduction of correspondents into news bulletins where previously only a newsreader would present, as well as the inclusion of content gathered in the preparation process.
