BBC Parliament Rebrand/Reithed

How long until BBC Parliament goes HD (if only for iPlayer...)

Are the cameras in the Commons/Lords chambers HD compatible? *

Those cameras in the pictures are from the mid to late 1980s, and possibly so is the photo. The larger one is a Sony BVP-3P, and I remember setting it up in the workshop. I don't know what the smaller Panasonic is for, possibly an off line 'snoop' camera

Those Sonys were retired yonks ago.

Ah yes, here’s a more recent chamber camera taken from a GettyImages video showing social distancing measures in the chamber
