It’s nearly always live. The trail is to allow the set to be changed.
It was done live in A today.
Sometimes, because of breaking news, it’s recorded at 1630.
You can tell when it’s live as the logo and ticker will go during the titles, they stay on when it’s recorded.
I’ve just realized: if B is busy with rehearsals for the next two weeks, and everyone is decamping, where will Newsnight come from?
Perhaps it could be done in The Shed? Maitlis and Dubonnet?
