I see they aren’t using the CDC illustration (or similar seen below) of COVID|19. So could someone explain what the Sky News illustration is supposed to represent?
While this is an electron microscope view of COVID-19 via the CDC:
Does anyone have a video of the broadcast?
I assume it’s immensely easier where Sky is running OverDrive automation. I’ve seen TV stations in the US do this as well with the director sitting at home running the automation.
So we just went 100% remote on @SkyNews with our #WFH special #LifeUnderLockdown - all presented, produced & directed off site.

Surprised there have been no posts from Sky News Tech Team @NewsTech
It's just a graphic, there's no deeper meaning! The CDC representation of it would be a bit much as the background to titles and slates, in my opinion. They have, however been using the CDC image on the side screens in the VR for some segments: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCwaxSvSAS8
They are very busy. I believe it was done primarily using vMix rather than Overdrive, but I'm not certain - I'll ask James (the director) when I next see him.
House style to put live tags between the locators on boxes (of any number). See the very start of this video for 8-way boxes (with the text on the outer 4 being indented to remain safe) with live tags.
And one other thing; when using boxes in normal programming, one of the recorded outputs has no live indicators at all.
Quite an autumn from grace. (That was awful. Sorry!)
