I like it. It's nice and simple. Are the stack of 8'screens behind the desk the ones that were typically up on top of the second level? Looks like an attempt to block off the gallery.
While I can't speak to whether the monitors came from upstairs, I can say they're more than just set dressing.
Every quadrant of each monitor will - at one point or another - have live incoming video from constituency counts. Supervisors with earpieces will be patrolling the studio floor and will - for example - tap me on the shoulder and say: "Feed 216... Sunderland South". I then bash that into my special keypad to get it up on my own TV and await the result declaration through my headphones, which I then hastily enter into our software system to get it on-screen ASAP.
It's a bit of a tightrope, so please cross your fingers for me and the team. We aim to do you proud!
