I just saw a package on the migrant crisis where they identified James Reynolds, Gavin Lee and Nick Thorpe not in the normal Chyron but a box that animates in the safe zone and “floats” from any other onscreen elements.

There's a bit on that studio at Newscast Studio:

“We continually update and invest in our studios, set technology and show looks. Studio J has always been an important studio for many show productions and special events. It is also one of our largest studios. We now have 14 studios between our New York Headquarters, D.C. and L.A. bureaus , so there is always a studio project in the works,” said Blangiforti.

That's excessive and seems unnecessary.
They really do have money to burn. At least it keeps people employed.

It’s not that excessive I think. NBC has atleast 10 studios on the east coast dedicated to the news division (five in New York, four in DC in two locations and one in Miami). Granted not all are used but they are used on a fairly regular basis. Then there are two in LA, one joint CNBC one in San Francisco plus two mini studios (a bit more than a DTL studio in Chicago and Dallas). That’s off the top of my head and not including the Telemundo ones that are shared.

Shame. It’s a show they shouldn’t tinker with too much considering it’s one of ITV’s current longest running shows and I think Griff gave the show an essence of what they had with Denis Norden but with his own twist of humour.

I could imagine David being quite similar but it wasn’t broke... so why fix it?

It would be great if they could use Studio E overnights if there weren't any technical, staffing or financial obstables. It being not London-centric is helpful as opposed to "Broadcasting to viewers in North America..." and you see a view of London.
I remember others saying on the forum the newsroom would look empty but I didn't notice that and it was over the weekend. Empty-looking or not, the newsroom backdrop looks better. That's just my opinion.

MSNBC uses a backdrop of 30 Rock. It’s dynamic where some shows have screen on each side of the tower where graphics appear and with the Today windows as well or they use what it look like in real life.

I think since BBC World brands on NBH and the images are shown frequently a live feed from All Souls Church at night. Maybe show the journalists memorial.

It's a bit like a US 'town hall' but with a panel ?

Yes, those occasional CNN town halls are the most similar thing I can think of, but Question TIme has a panel of guests, is less glossy and invites audience comment throughout the show. Also, it has travelled extensively across the UK during it's years on air, and usually comes from actual town halls, school gymnasiums, local theatres, and even an airport check-in area. The set is usually just a simple backdrop, desk and seating.

That said, I don't really watch these days as it's all become very predictable, as summed up in these three minutes:

I have Freeview and ITV is in HD on there... check your facts.

ITV4 isn’t. Check your facts.

Sorry you didn't make it clear you were talking about ITV4, you said and I quote: "shown by ITV in HD then?"; I assumed that you were referring to the ITV channel. ITV2, 3 and 4 are of course shown on Sky in HD. I am not bothered where the soaps or the mind numbing football watched by knuckle dragging Neanderthals are shown. My humble apologies.

You’d suggested any football shown by ITV was moved to ITV4, making it not available in HD to those with Freesat or Freeview. It was pretty clear but hey ho.


Anyway, as you’ve decided your tastes are so superior you can call 18m people in the U.K. ‘knuckle dragging Neanderthals’, do let everyone on this forum know what they are so they have the chance to insult anyone who watches or dares have an interest in them.

You seem to be cobtracdicting yourself - having said that any football should only be on the BBC red button or ITV 4 you’re now suddenly not bothered about where it’s shown? Have you changed your mind? Are others with different tastes allowed to have programmes / events they’d enjoy on the flagship channels of a particular broadcaster? I’m trying to understand what you’re getting at.

Viacom wouldn't be a big company if they spent all their money on the "best" things.


Indeed, some people don't get the basic principles of commercial broadcasting.

Unless pay TV providers such as Sky, Virgin and BT wish to pay Viacom to provide them with HD versions of their free channels, then Viacom have no reason to do so.
