Lovely responce DTV, my only issue with it is this...

Have you forgotten the period it spent in N6.

This was the best set I think they've had in N6 (in my opinion of course). Perfectly matched with News 24 and all the regions, but each with their own slightly different setup, very nice.

Edit: Mod Edit: You're going off topic Bail, stop it, Sorry Bail, will try harder. Good.


You're also in the wrong era, as that was a BBC1 studio, not a BBC News Channel studio. I think he's refering to the look before the current one, which was in the studio that was practically all video wall. At least in E, it's not almost all video walls, unlike in C, and to an extent, B.


Sorry, should have made it clearer that I meant the horrible rectangle set that the News Channel had. Which consisted of nothing but rectangles (except the desk), a Desk Area which had seemingly been randomly placed anywhere, an ever fading and greying set of BARCOs and no creative use at all, say what you will about N8 being shabby and TC7 being the same boring design as N6 - but the crews from those studios knew how to pull it off, occasionally.

That was one of my favourites too, Bail - though I didn't like it when it had Bongo Drums and cream walls in it - not too great!
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...

I presume the 830-11 and 2-5 shifts will be single headed...there will be no need for a early evening presenter either...I guess you could count both presenters of the 11-2 shift too as Victoria is coming in...

Surely they have to get rid of the presenter that just comes in to do the BBC One weekend bulletins (NC presenter can do it) and stop bringing in Ellie Crissell just for the 8pm update (unless she is gonna present this new strand aimed at younger viewers on the NC)

I presume seeing as Matthew has been moved to world the daytime schedule will see Simon am, Victoria lunchtime, Jane pm and Clive in the evening.


So are you saying that the NC presenter isn't entitled to a break? That's what they get when the national bulletins are on!!






A few questions;
There seems to be many BBC News presenters who just present certain bulletins like ellie crissell. This must cost the licence payer a fortune for just a few hours/minutes work. Why does this happen ?


What is wrong with having World/News Channel presenters being on BBC 1 presenting the main news ? (rather than changing them before a BBC 1 News starts)


When is the messy looking NC set going to be changed ? It has gone down in history as the worst ever !
i.e. cheap, dated, distracting, fault ridden, confusing, small, tacky, gimmicky, the list could go on.
Does one person decide how these things look or is it done by a committee ?
Or did they take lessons from a programme in the nineties called 'The Day Today' - it was not real you know.

How much TV Licence money are these 'creative' people paid ?



When will the tired countdown be changed ?
Rather than having presenters and BBC news directors(!!?) posing 'action' shots, lets have some REAL not faked footage from the BBC.


Hopefully when the up and coming changes happen the BBC will keep Simon and move both Sophie's to a broadcast region where I cannot see them.
