Does anyone know where Tom Raynor was coming from this morning? It said he was in Westminster but there was just a grey screen behind him. He was in the Millbank studio when breakfast was there.

He’s in the DTL studio in Millbank, which hasn’t been used much due to covid as most guests have been remote. As Niall had decamped from the studio to the newsroom, Tom ended up in there.


Jayne Secker did take over at 12:45 as soon as they cut away from PMQs, when usually Adam stays on til 1pm for PMQs. I assume this was just because there’s no point Adam waiting 45 minutes for the sake of 10 minutes before Jayne taking over at 1pm anyways.

Why is Adam Boulton presenting from College Green today cause all you see is that protester behind in every camera shot?

Apparently there are issues with a pungent smell in Millbank...

So they asked Adam Boulton to leave the building. Laughing

Any particular reason? Or further confirmation? It kind of feels as though this (long overdue) revamp will never actually make it to air

I'd rather Sky took their time to implement the new graphics if it means we have to continue seeing the clinical graphics for a few more weeks than have bugs that they need to iron out before launching.

That's a remixed version of the theme, it was used back in 2012 for Martin Stanford's news updates on Pick TV.

I vaguely remember when they did this, how long did these updates continue for and how regularly did they air?
