I'm surprised they have anything SD in Salford!

Most of the sat truck OBs you see are in SD, as are most of the IP based ones you'll see, especially those via satellite.

Salford isn't SD but it just depends which truck they send and how much sat space there is.

TV Centre had wallboxes but if you saw a live from outside it that was by sat truck. Just easier as every thing is set up and ready to go. Also you'd need a crew, who are rostered onto the truck

Surprised they used a 'relief' sports presenter at such a high profile time this morning.

I wonder if they should have had Dan Walker do overnights and Breakfast, moving Jason Mohammad to BBC4 evenings.

That would be a long long shift for Dan Walker.
Hello, good evening, and remain indoors.

I don't know whether it's the first time they've done this, but today we got this during what would normally be the Business Report, with appropriate Breakfast Business graphics. Today's Business reporter is Vanessa.

The plasmas and straps displayed the '£' symbol normally reminiscent of Budget or Autumn statement programmes/reports.

The last couple of weeks have been a lesson in how important presentation is. Yes, the usual studio does it's job and has no impact on the ratings but over the last couple of weeks it's felt like the show has had the studio it deserves, and it is quite clear it would be easy enough to accomodate them full time with very minor tweaks (basically something to cover the BBC Sport signs).

Also highlights how you can never really replicate a real background successfully.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I agree with your sentiments, Brekkie, but my comment concerned the use of different plasma/strap graphics, even though they had previously used the normal 'Breakfast Business' graphics whilst in the Sport studio.

I think the graphic used on the plasma is actually new graphics that follow a mini refresh for Business on Breakfast. They've appeared a few times before Olympic Breakfast.

I think James Mobbs also tweeted about them.

I wish they used those straps during the normal biz bulletins on the NC/World.

Louise confirmed at the end of today's programme that they would be returning to the red sofa from tomorrow morning.

She didn't look too happy about it, and I don't blame her, after having seen Breakfast come from a 'fit for purpose' setting for the last 2 weeks.

I think it's time they reconsidered the studio allocations in Salford.

Hence, "Sun reader" being an oxymoron...
