Odd camera angle used during the Six. I've never realised the white box behind the desk before.

That "box" may be a printer for the computer in the desk or a compartment for tissues / beverages


If it’s like the one in C then it is cabinet with an opening for a printer and I think two compartments.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

It’s the printer housing-cum-minibar. Every studio should have one.


Errrr, phrasing? 😮

-Cum-

Preposition

Used to join two nouns, showing that a person or thing does two things or has two purposes; combined with:

This is my bedroom-cum-study.

(https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/cum)

Not to be confused with the definition you'd find on Urban Dictionary, although I'll admit that was also my first thought. Laughing

No Katty Kay. No Jane O’Brien. So who’s going to sit in the seat now for Beyond 100 Days and World News America?

Laura Trevelyan? She and Jane have been the primary replacement for Katty Kay on WNA (I think she’s still the “anchor”). However she lives in New York (her husbands the chief of ABC News)
