BBC News at 6 preview picture on schedules/iPlayer

This just seems like they're lampshading the camera errors

The image that appears when looking up the News at 6 on the BBC's schedules (https://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl6p) appears to have not only an off-white background and compressed logo, but there is a camera in the foreground with the correct still. Oddly, the 1 and 10 O'Clock News both have the correct still, so is this just an error on the Beeb's end or are they lampshading the camera errors that have plagued the BBC News since their move to Broadcasting House?

Oddly, the 10 O'Clock News has the correct still


As it turns out, News at 10 is also affected, but with a different image that looks closer to the norm. HUH?

I don’t quite get what you’re on about to be honest, but I think the 6 image is a photo of the camera in front of the studio screens, hence the distortion to the background image (both aspect wise and colour). The 10 image looks, to me at least, as if the camera image has been photoshopped in front of the logo.
Two minutes regions...

It is not really an incorrect still, it's just a publicity shot where they have tried to be a bit arty and do something other than having just a standard title card. Indeed, if you look at the BBC schedule pages - many have promotional shots rather than titlecards as their still. As deejay says, it is likely one of Studio E's cameras shot in front of one of the plasmas.

Looking closely, it kinda looks like the 6 one is positioned where the presenter would be standing at the beginning of the news, judging from the quality of the 6 and the curve of the screen. As for 10? looks like it might be greenscreen antics there.

It’s not greenscreen I don’t think. (There isn’t a green screen in E anyway). I’m sure it’s a closeup of a camera cutout over the 10 titles end frame.

10 is same spot as the 6, just zoomed out
