BBC News nostalgia, including BBC World

Do we know the reason for the different endboard to usual here. Granted it was the final week of the Virtual look, had this been changed before hand or was it an error? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEVdaIfKS1U&t=281s

Perhaps a deliberate way to avoid any wide shots - for all we know Jennie Bond was sitting at the new desk with a temporary green screen rigged behind her.

The 'get well soon Tony Currie' thread

Scottish broadcasting stalwart, Ceefax music legend, and TV Forum regular Tony Currie is recovering in hospital at the moment after surviving an implausible number of heart attacks.

He's doing fine, given the circumstances, and has already been complaining on Facebook about the audio quality of hospital radio.

There's a short article in today's Sunday Post at https://www.sundaypost.com/fp/voice-of-bbc-scotland-tony-currie-salutes-hospital-team-for-saving-his-life/

I'm sure I'll not be alone here in wanting to wish you best wishes for a speedy recovery, Tony - and hope you're back in front of a microphone again soon.
