I wonder if millbank studio with the big screen is a sign of what a new BBC News studio would look like. I do like the desk but not sure about an all screen studio.
I hope not, it'll be like N6
and TC7 all over again!
There was a time where the Millbank studio had a working newsroom around it (Darren Jordan presented an emergency 1:00 news there sometime last decade). Looked far better then than it does now and at the time was an improvement on N6/TC7.
2003 I think, the power cut that took out Stage 6 so the News Channel stayed in TC7 after Breakfast until Millbank were ready to take over.
That was a separate set in a corner of the newsroom https://www.flickr.com/photos/bowbrick/1366668/
there was a gauze curtain that could be pulled across to soften the view of the newsroom if required.
Cameras were taken from the studio if this set was required, so in contingency situations it was often a case of using whichever space was set up, hence the dingy Dateline London set being used after the bomb incident.
Write that down in your copybook now.
