Have a look at Sky News now if you want to see the whole of the studio in use -- i.e. all of the panelling in front of the desks.

Wait a cotton' pickin' minute - how come chiguy has carte blanche to make sneery comments when he is pretty quick to report such posts against him?

Consider yourself 'reported'. Ass.

chiguy is a law unto himself you have to remember though Gav. What applies to us doesn't apply to him.

All of a sudden ?

I blame it on global warming, George Dubya and James Martin.

Oh my god C@t, you are so sad!! People don't watch Sky News for the brown/red pallening beside the desk...only us lot Laughing

News 24 havn't caught up purely because of their new on screen identity (which may have contributed) but the agenda and more comprehensive and authoritive feel to the channel has increased viewing figures.

Please refrain from believing a news channel gains more viewers when the entire set is on our tv screens, its a load of bull

I think you're the one talking a load of bull.

Where has c@t made any such assertion?

Let's tone it down, shall we? The Chicago Instigator is gone now, so can we return to our normal, friendly, bubbly personalities?

Well to go back to the debate....

Still think Sky News beats the hell out of BBC News 24. It's punchier, easier to watch and still deals with serious stories. News 24's style is stodgy and tedious. If News 24 wants to justify its existence, they should be going for more regional stories (making full use of their many regional news centres, and becoming less London-centric), and do more world stories (making use of their much higher budget). In other words, move away from tedious, M25-dominated 'national' stories. They're moving in the right direction, but they're not there yet.

Btw - anyone watching News 24 tonight, keep an eye on the clearly recorded weather report at the top of the hour. It's clearly been recorded earlier because the weather presenter starts with "I wish I could talk proper", obviously a reference to something said by the news presenter when it was recorded. But it makes no sense coming out of an 'ad break' every hour.

That was Michael Fish at the 11.57pm forecast, just after HardTalk Extra. I believe he was making a reference to that programme, in which Gavin Esler spent 30 minutes talking to the woman who wrote the book Eats Shoots and Leaves, discussing grammar etc. and the 'Apostrophe Protection Society' Laughing

Maybe this was played throughout the night, I don't know, I was asleep, but I think that forecast was live.
