Great photos. Interesting they got rid of the curved glass where peter is standing when world moved in.
Well they needed the space for the back of the barco wall, it needed distance for access and ventilation.
Can I just reiterate again, having seen the photos Bail has posted, how spectacular the 1999 designs were. Both N8
looked like futuristic spaceships - what with the Lambie-Nairn titles, David Lowe music and those sets, it really was the pinnacle of BBC News presentation.
Yup, I loved the sheer "warmth" of it, from the downlighting, the reds and creams, to the wood on the desk and the flooring. Now everything is shiney and plastic.
Edit: Also, seeing how little it changed from then till closure, and how different it was to the original 1999, I can see why they were in the greenscreen studio for so long prior to the relaunch.
I loved the second version of the 1999 set, I seem to recall they added more red to the back wall and removed the weird evil laser of screens thing from the ceiling putting the emphasis on that fake gallery thing.
The real gallery was behind the 2003 desk (through the perspex wall) but off to the left. The chairs faced the back wall.
I am sick of been persicuted by you immature TV Forumers!
