Sky News | October 2019 Onwards

Still not sold on Millbank.

We've gone from Mark Austin in front of a sharp, bright screen in the Glass Box, to Ed Conway, in Millbank, standing in front of a washed out graph that is not very sharp on the screen that clearly has a problem displaying white.

What's with all the black dots on the circled area? is it dead pixels or some strange rendering issue? Either way the closer you are up to those screens in Millbank, the more the blurry nature of them shows.

The set during Sky News Tonight. Notice that Dermot hasn't got the pop out screens bit that Adam had earlier in the day

It looks much better because Westminster looks much better at night.


For me it's not just the background photo, it's the whole set-up. The colours used in the image on the desk, the blue, red and white under the image all goes together supremely well. It actually fits together.

And the other thing, is the whole colour use for Tonight really screams an identity, something Sky News has been sorely lacking since their move to the glass box where it has felt bland. It feels like a mixture between the new modern style used in a glass box, whilst also retaining some identity from the past.

My message to Sky would be - Tonight has it nailed. Now go and use this and try and come up with something similar that fits a morning show and all out Politics etc. It doesn't have to be the same, but it's a good starting point.

Tonight for me shows the potential of the set if it's used to it's potential. Kay Burley's show meanwhile shows how bland Sky News can be if they continue down their pathway they have of the last few years.
