Primetime shows including, the "MasterChef" final and "Gardener's World" on BBC Two were withdrawn to allow for special coverage of the Duke of Edinburgh's passing, NBC News reported.BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Scotland, BBC News, and BBC Alba were all streaming identical coverage throughout the afternoon.

Former BBC News presenter, Simon McCoy, was among those questioning the broadcaster's decisions.He initially tweeted: "BBC1 and BBC2 showing the same thing. And presumably the News Channel too. Why?
