Alas the one video I forget to keep was the one at 23.30 where Clive was speaking to the first person who had been flow across the floor.

ITV to refurb & extend South Bank site

And when you add in the competition for studios ITV must be wondering will the profits keep on appearing? Maidstone, TV Centre, etc. Who says The Graham Norton Show, The Last Leg, Have I Got News For You and QI. will stay at Kent house? There might all switch.
Take me out isn't in London is it? I bet Celb Juice could also move.

So is ITV HQ staying on the same site? in smaller Office block with 3-4 smallish studios?

Looking on YouTube and it seems that Victoria Derbyshire presented some of today's BBC coverage but as a BBC News bulletin rather than as her own programme - as a result it looks quite weird as she is dressed very informally for a serious programme!
You'll also spot a dress change about an hour in when a colleague hands a different jacket and all shots are waist high to avoid showing the jeans. Though in fairness, given train times, scheduling and how long it took to get there she probably wanted to go straight on air.

As seen here: FROM TV LIVE

Nice to see my efforts are not for waste.

Manchester Terror Attack


In terms of ITV, it wasn't ideal they weren't on the air before 6am with this story. As it turns out it was an isolated terror attack, but it raises questions for me over how prepared they would be for a bigger incident. I'm quite sure there must be plans for that, or another Diana situation, but there does seem to be a gap there.


The gap happened at the worse possible time for ITV. At 11.06 is when BBC and Sky started to report something had happen, but it was unclear. Around 23.30 Network rail stated the trains have stopped which confused people further. it wasn't until 23.48 the police confirmed deaths etc and it wasnt until that time the rolling news started to get going. RT, AL etc started around those times.

By this time I doubt there would be any ITV news staff really around. I'm surprised there never started GMB early. I Agree ITV needs to get better plans, but would it have made much off a difference? since BBC, Sky and the local radio network was doing a much better job.
