Anyone else remember that there was a plan to integrate a shot of the outside of BH and the journalists memorial on the roof, into the titles of the 10 o clock news? Seemed to be totally forgotten about between the first stage of the redevelopment being fnished and the completion of the project

Yeah, pretty sure at the same time it was also mentioned that the 10 would come from a studio just beneath the memorial with a window looking out over All Souls, which sounds like what ended up being the Persian studio where Newsnight is now.

To be fair, the number of things that were rumoured and/or planned about NBH that didn't actually happen is ridiculously long. I was reminded the other day that the initial plan was to have the News 24 and World studios both on either sides of the newsroom mezzanine level.
