Only caught a bit this morning with Dan and two guests spread out on the sofa so have they opted to go single anchored for now (due to both social distancing and potential self isolation) or was Louise on location (or hosting from home?)

I notice they're no longer panning out when they cut away for the regional news, instead playing the orange sting. Presumably because a panning out shot doesn't look as good with the distance between the presenters?

On a side note, are the new London and South East regional bulletins just for Breakfast, or throughout the day?

perhaps there are fewer camera operators in the studio?

They are still using the wide shot at the TOTH/BOTH, but it looks rather odd as the distance between them is exaggerated by the wide-angle lens (or whatever method they use to make the image closer to the camera appear larger).

BBC London & BBC South East have been doing a joint bulletin (from Tunbridge Wells) since Saturday, presumably to reduce the need to require staffing Studio D at NBH.
