Hearing that the NC may relocate to Millbank.

Another issue not mentioned is BBC London News, can they carry on using their own gallery in Peel Wing as normal?

That recorded graphic isn’t great, it’s a little bit obstructing.

I think it has to be that long in order to cover up the ‘LIVE’ location tag, which could be any length.

I did think that but surely just the 'LIVE' part could be covered?

I suppose it's the least of the gallery's priorities at the moment.

Perhaps because it would take it outside of the 4:3 safe area (when it was designed)? Only because the rest of the graphics are still 4:3 safe.

Presumably it also covers the Local Time part of the strap

News Channel is live, but all cameras are frozen and presumably can't move due to the technical issue. Hopefully they're back to normal later.

No camera movement all locked off shots with only Ben's doing a zoom. Perhaps cameras being handled manually to minimise complexity on the system.

It seems they are back live now on both channels. On the NC it seems they have lost furio track datas for the cameras but for WN the cameras seems to operate normally.

Afternoon live has turned in to a normal bulletin without sport or weather stings in the headlines.
World News seems to be showing a typical edition of Global (although B always uses manual cameras with actual cameramen and women rather than the automated cameras in E.

OpenMedia is back but effectively read-only while some issues remain.
bilky asko and SuperSajuuk gave kudos

I'm pretty sure that Global comes from Studio B (or whichever one they normally use for Newsnight and Victoria), which are manually operated by humans (afaik?) and not controlled by a computer, thus they'll work as normal.

EDIT: Was confirmed earlier by another poster.
