Not sure about this, but to hell with it. The plasma screens seem to have been moved somewhat compared with the usual against the wall. The weather looks a hell of a lot better with not zooming in and missing the bottom strap-line.

Just a thought, but since the Six has the weather in the studio, why not have it in the studio on the One too? It seems pointless handing over to the presenter on a big plasma. Any thoughts?

But I prefer the weather not integrated in the Ten, since it is supposed to be the flagship, main bulletin (although it has fewer viewers). Also on the Ten, did anyone see Rory Cellan-Jones report from the CSO? It looks awful, why do they not have a report like that presented in front of the plasma (like the One and Six do) in the studio, it would look a lot better.

The Ten often have a reporter sitting with Huw or Fiona and use the backing plasmas to "drop down" another screen. It's quite snazzy and makes it look different from the six.

perhaps it was recorded and they used the CSO because going to the projector (it's not a plasma) would have looked odd without going to the wide shot first

They never use the big screens on the Ten - either the CSO or the small plasmas at the desk.

Sorry ' Steve in Pudsey ', I meant the screens on the red panels. They are used to do a report with a lot of analysis on the One O'Clock and Six O'Clock News. But on the Ten they do the equivalent either at the desk (which I prefer) or from the CSO. But that CSO looks very poor compared to how ITV News utilise their CSO. I think they would be better doing such a report either at the desk (which they sometimes do) or from the big screens on the red panels.

I know what you mean. You can clearly see that on the One with the first story, it's graphics are on the big screen, and that screen fits in between the two silver bars.

But on the Six and Ten you can see the same screen is bigger as it goes outside the silver bar on the left.

So do they swap screens about or something?

Interesting. Didn't notice that before... Maybe that's the reason why the weather presenter can't be in the studio on the One O'Clock News because the plasma is simply too small.
But they can't use the big plasmas on the One because the left side would be covered by the presenter.
They are using the small ones for the weekend bulletins BTW.

Interesting. Is the 1 in a different studio?

It's the same screen - but you are looking at it from two different angles. Why would they change screens?! Mental.

It's the same screen, just seen from a different camera angle. It's a big projection screen, and all the works behind it are far too big (and delicate) to be shunted about all the time.

Exactly!
