Networks are finalising plans for their coverage of the television event of the year, The Royal Wedding. International networks CNN, BBC and ITV have planned round-the-clock broadcasts of Kate Middleton and Prince William's big day, and wedding specials screen in the days beforehand.
Here in New Zealand, TVNZ confirms it will be sending Mark Sainsbury to London, where he will broadcast Close Up live on the evening of the wedding. TVNZ will be anchoring One News out of London and will cross to European correspondent Paul Hobbs and journalist Lisa Owen who is already stationed in Britain. TV One will start its coverage of the Royal Wedding at 8.30pm on the night. At 10.30pm it will take live BBC coverage until 1am and will compile a highlights package to run on Saturday, April 30.
