BBC Scotland Studio
BBC Scotland's studio measures 18x10m, and thanks to images posted online before their actual new studio made its debut, we now have some fairly accurate dimensions, showing where the big pillar is and the doors are etc. For those who need some confirmation, here's the the image of the studio dimensions:
Whilst BBC Scotland's new studio is nice, I'm not a fan of the two zones being connected by the plasma in the middle of the two sets - I think it looks nicer when there are two distinct zones to the studio. You can probably make each set slightly bigger if they don't have to connect up either. Therefore, I have gone for a Studio B style studio, with a 'hard' side with the desk and mini-newswall, and then the soft side with a coffee table desk and no rostrum. This means that one side is much more versatile for things like performances should they ever need to come from Glasgow. The soft side doesn't have the full LED panels like in Studio B, as looking back they take up a lot of space and are expensive - the screen arrangement is therefore similar to what they actually have, but with larger screens.
Not claiming any bold inspiration here, just red and white for the most part, with the desk following what lots of other regions are doing by having the central column lit red. The soft set has a backdrop similar the current squinty bridge one.
Sunday Politics Scotland
Unlike the real set this mock keeps the Sunday Politics desk and wouldn't have a backdrop that animates like the current one in Glasgow does - subtle animation would be nice but the one they currently use has the clouds going past quite noticeably and quickly. I've also managed to work a cog into my version of the backdrop, which was compiled from some graphic they used once.
This one features the lowest quality backdrops of the set, which is due to them being screengrabs of the graphics used on the screens in the real studio, stitched together and then jiggled about a bit so they face head on. Apologies for that.
I've also done a version of the studio in Scotland Decides colours, as I'm sure I read at some point that BBC One Scotland's programme would broadcast from their normal studio. There are some new desks in place for the occasion which I think look quite snazzy, and on the big three screens is the Edinburgh skyline.
Finally, here are some gifs that give a nice fade between one colour set-up and the next:
