Completely getting rid of the soft set era of the DP.

Well, the old screens with a digital altered background would have looked great, instead an oddly murky screen print...

..and looks like 'Reith' will take a very long time to reach Millbank, once (eventually) released to roam around the NCA department.

How very Barco 2008.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Looks quite nice. Hope this is the beginning of a refresh of their wider political coverage (including elections). Will also be interesting to see how it fits branding-wise alongside the rest of News.

That’s a very odd pose.

Here's a higher resolution version of that image:


EDIT: It appears that Jo Coburn's Twitter profile image is a different picture, with another image (seemingly accidentally) faintly overlaid.


EDIT 2: The difference in alignment between the logo and Elizabeth Tower between the two images suggests that it isn't a screen print as suggested earlier, but may be a display of some kind with scrolling logos?

Yay, N6 lives on! Very Happy

In one of the refit Twitter posts there was a substantial frame installed, so I'd be very surprised if it wasn't a screen.

It seems strange that they have gone from a circular set to a square one, the opposite of what the rest of BBC News is doing.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Not really, a bit of variation never did any harm, and besides it’s not a generic BBC News programme. Colour schemes and other things can tie a brand together just as well as having a circular wall in a studio.
