Hi,

I'm wondering if someone could please clear up for me which network or service uses which studio as I am confused with it all. Thank you for any information.

Aaron.

BBC News (channel) uses N6, along with the 1 and 10 o'clock programmes. This means it's in service from 0830-1800, 1830-2130 and 2200-0030.

BBC World News uses N8 from 0500 until 0000. The BBC News channel also broadcasts here from 2130-2200 and simulcasts BBC World News from 0500-0600 and also World News Today on BBC Four from 1900-1930.

Breakfast and the 6 o'clock news come from TC7.

N9 is currently being used overnights on BBC World News and the BBC News channel from 0100-0500, although it may soon be coming from N8 like the rest of BBC World News output.

Thanks for the info.

The overnight service came from N8 on at least one night this week - I think it was Wednesday when I saw it.

For completeness, TC7 is also home to Working Lunch, Newsnight, Newsround, Sportsround, The Andrew Marr Show and The Politics Show.

Although I will admit to not having been exactly sober at the time, I'm sure I saw N8 on the News Channel, with Alistair Yates in the early hours of one morning this week.

...and where are the morning and afternoon summaries, and the 8pm headlines on BBC 1 coming from?

The CSO studio used for BBCi, I think.

The 8 o'clock Headlines come from TC7 actually.

I'm almost certain Steve is right. I was up late on Wednesday night and recall seeing Alastair Yates in N8, too. I know it was Wednesday night because when I was watching the 0100 bulletin, I realised it was in fact Thursday and it was my birthday!

Happy Birthday for the other day.

Are you certain you're right though? Remember archivetv provided us with those lovely N8 pictures while it was out of use.

Thanks Jugalug. I remember reading on here on Monday that the overnight service was due to be coming from N9 all this week and when I saw N8 on Thursday at 0100, it crossed my mind that they must have finished whatever they were doing in there. It's the only overnight bulletin I've seen this week. Of course, I could have been almost asleep and got myself confused but I'm about 80% sure it was N8.
