Scoop Today - Yesterday's Top 20

(NOTE TO SCOOP TODAY SUBSCRIBERS - FEEDBACK WANTED: The Scoop Team is keen to receive feedback on the usefulness of the new Scoop Top 20 ratings bulletins. Is two bulletins a day too many? Is the afternoon bulletin - i.e. Today's Top 20 - more or less useful than the morning - Yesterday's Top 20 - bulletin? And finally do subscribers have a view on the best time to receive the main Scoop Today - Today's Scoops - bulletin?)
