Coronavirus - Impact on live/recorded shows

Several talk programmes have cancelled studio audiences

I've always thought there was a bit of artistic licence with the auctions anyway and they weren't always present in the room when the items were being auctioned.

They're usually at the back of the auction room, it can and must be quite annoying if one of the teams is squealing and making a lot of noise when their items makes a profit.

The early Dickinson episodes had them all talking very quietly, indicating they were in the auction room at least then and weren’t allowed to raise their voice too much - leading to one amusing moment where a team from America were making a loss and the contestant suddenly screamed “COME ON, BID!!” at the room, to the obvious horror of Dickinson.

Loose Women found a solution to have more than three people on the panel, they had Eamonn and Ruth and Peter and Emily Andre as anchor and panelists.

Those couples live together... the Loose Women do not.

I think that was Jonwo's point.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Have I Got News For You back tonight with perspex screens between the panel and am audience distant and split between studio and cinema at Riverside.

Felt a bit different, particularly the studio which seemed much smaller, the wide shot was a lot narrower and it didn't pull back at the end.

A bit of an error on the announcement into the programme which said it started on BBC One 30 years ago

i think they could have done with some cutaways of the audiences throughout the show as many have been commenting on the "canned laughter".

Certainly seemed a lot more "normal" than the previous HIGNFY series that had everyone appearing via video link on Zoom. The lack of wide shot usually seen during the end credits would suggest that, for this series at least, they don't have the usual audience areas the show has always had on either side of the set for social distancing purposes.
"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.

Stay tuned . . .

People always complain about "canned laughter", even when you can prove definitively it's a real audience.

Graham Norton seems to have adopted the QT method for his return to the studio:*

Graham Norton has also returned to the studio for the first time since lockdown. The set has had its biggest change with a large circular stage allowing guests to socially distance on chairs rather than a sofa, Graham’s sofa moved to the centre of the stage and the surrounding set tweaked to balance on both sides. It works very well like this in my opinion, and it’s a lovely little change.

I've always thought the sofa was very cramped so I think it would good to adopt the chairs when the pandemic ends although obviously have them closer to Graham,
