Complete joke. Let again people in England are being expected to pay just as much as those in the nations to receive a poorer service. Until the nations pay a supplemental licence fee to pay for the additional local content the amount of content in the nations need to be reduced to the level for the regions of England.
If only there was something going out in England produced in and for England during the slots for the nations opt-outs!

To be fair, for those eight weeks, the most important story by far will continue to be the Corona Virus, and an English section to the programme may make sense as the detail of what is allowed diverges between England and the devolved countries.

Large cockroaches presenting TV programmes in 76 million years is a bit of a stretch. BBC Breakfast still having the same set is not. Shocked

Going back to the lack of update to the Breakfast Set. It really is quite the embarrassment. It's the lame donkey among all news output from the BBC. I'm not even sure Breakfast can justify the Coronavirus for having not got around to a revamp sooner than now.

They got a new sofa because the original was was basically falling apart and an update to the background, which IIRC, Mr Walker or another presenter made a point of pointing it out on air!

Meanwhile downstairs, and has been mentioned hundreds of times before, BBC Sport continue to be housed in a fabulous looking set that won't age for years. In fact. I don't wish to sounds repetitive, but the nation's most watched Breakfast television programme could really do with some love and attention and that begins with a set of its own and something that truly does the show some justice.

When BBC Wales Today move into their new studio, it'll top anything we've on screen currently and Breakfast will look as tired as it's feeling these days.

Not to mention the fact that the main BBC Sport set has had a fair few refurbs/rejigs since it first went on air.

Yes I caught Breakfast yesterday for the first time in ages and it needs a major set overhaul! They could easily utilise the BBC Sport set. Also I think they need better "C Team" presenters...

If Breakfast was to move to the BBC Sport studio, I think realistically you’d have to swap the production teams (I don’t know how far the two studios are from each other, or how feasible this would be though).

I’m sure the idea has been seriously considered, but maybe there are logistical (or cost) reasons for it not happening. Breakfast would, however, look and feel significantly fresher in the Sport studio, whilst Sport could share the current Breakfast studio with NWT, or use a DTL position in the sports newsroom, without looking all that different.

Could Breakfast not use the new green screen studio that Football Focus and Match of the Day currently use - make a big virtual set instead of using a physical one?

Not sure that would be enough turnaround time for the various programmes... since there are issues going between the different VR sets, from what I’ve heard.

What would the issues be? Is it more than a case of just flicking a button and replacing the desk? I’m sure they could make it work if they wanted to.

Not that I like the idea, I’d have thought in the long run a green screen set for a breakfast show is probably quite limiting with different guests coming in and out. Then you’ve still got the issue making it look real, what works for BBC Sport wouldn’t work for Breakfast, so they’d basically just be running a virtual version of the NBH sets.

Spot on, that had completely slipped my mind, but didn’t that happen when we had the Olympics? Just goes to show how long ago it’s been since Breakfast was paid any attention.
