i don’t understand so this old studio started in 2005 which replaced the original that started in 1989 what happened to the original 1989 studio? and now we are in the glass box, so I am guessing in the history of Sky News this is the third studio?
I guess I'm becoming a little reminiscent as I get older, but I really liked the last iteration of the first studio (complete with the slightly garish, tabloid graphics that Sky News became quite well known for).
I'm sure it was seen as quite groundbreaking at the time - the use of a newswall (the original one) - and the very effective breaking news transition which would turn the wall red behind the presenters.
Sure it was cosy, but I always felt what followed (and what's about to be disposed of) felt a bit too big, showy and cold.
If you'll allow a bit of indulgence, I think this was one my favourite era of Sky News:
I'd have it on late in the background whilst madly trying to finish uni coursework, with Gordon Radley keeping me company though the night.
