[Mod note: Am hi-jacking opening post to add a summary to explain things...]
As of writing this (Feb 0
BBC National bulletins (ie. those on BBC One, including Breakfast) are coming from different studios. The weekend and One o'clock news are coming from the News 24 studio, whilst the other bulletins are coming from TC7.
This is to allow the national news studio N6
) to be refurbished, prior to BBC News 24 eventually moving from it's current location (N
into news studio 'N6'. Once this move is complete the Ten o'clock news will also come from the (new) News 24 studio.
The vacated N8
news studio will then be refurbished. Once this refurbishment is complete BBC World will move from it's current location (outside of Television Centre if I recall) into N8. The vacated BBC World studios will then be 'mothballed'.
...Hope that explain things for anyone confused.

I thought this warranted it's own thread, as not to muddle re-branding discussion with day-to-day talk in the BBC News General thread.
An interesting paragraph in today's Observer:
The BBC, which is in the process of rebranding its entire news output to imbue it's family of news programmes, including local bulletins, Today and Newsnight, with a stronger sense of collective identity... does not plan to recruit new faces,
nor introduce new titles
, but some hard-hitting reports.
So we are probably looking at just a new set. It talks about a stronger sens of collective identity, but News 24 and the Nationals already share practically identical title sequences. So I assume we're looking at a shared studio, and a different feel and content of programmes across the board, rather than just the appearance?
