That music is wonderful - making it the full time music would instantly improve Breakfast's current presentation.

I was thinking, as well, about that works and doesn't work about the current studio compared to their variant of the Sport Center, and I think the pitch black floor (compared to ring of wood-effect around the Olympic desk and sofa) and the harsh reddish-orange lighting around the non-plasma parts of the studio are two of the things that make the studio unnecessarily cold and off putting, at least for that time of the morning. Toning down the colour of the sofa would help, too.

Surely the prominent bursts of percussion on the current Olympic Breakfast theme are meant to be imitative of traditional Brazilian music? And therefore it would be nonsensical to keep this exact version of the theme beyond the Olympic fortnight?

Not an exact copy, but something with the same energy and more uplifting beat - sure.

I've barely seen Olympic Breakfast since last Saturday, so forgive me if this isn't new...

During the very first studio wideshot at 6am today (i.e. immediately after the opening Salford Quays sting), the two side screens in the studio were displaying what appeared to be sections of the usual NWT virtual "window" view, rather than any kind of programme logo.

Meridian (North) South Today
This morning, they're doing an OB from outside Media City, complete with a sat truck with a SD quality feed. Is there a reason why they can't do some form of HD microwave feed to the OB from the main building?


They probably don't have the kit to hand, though I'm surprised there are no 'wallboxes' in the plaza, I suspect
that's all tied up with ownership and ransom strips !
