Is that studio D with the main desk removed and the funny little kidney desk put in, or is that another studio elsewhere?


Studio D is home to BBC London News, the studio with the kidney desk is a World Service TV studio somewhere else in NBH. Before WSTV used the multipurpose area (Studio K) that Meet The Author comes from but WSTV is now using studio L, apparently.

Not quite sure whether to put this in this thread or the more general international thread, but WSTV is looking terribly inconsistent these days. None of the title sequences look to have been put together at the same time, and it all looks rather strange with different bits of existing presentation from the NC and World being spliced in.




Are these aired on tv or just online?

What is the WSTV you're referring too - I thought that was simply BBC World News?

How many international news TV services does the BBC have now - I thought it was just Persian and Arabic alongside the English BBC World News.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Is it on satellite? I only get bbc world news hd, bbc Arabic and Persian

The WSTV services aren't full time channels but bulletins that are distributed to other broadcasters and put online. Though one of the more popular African bulletins gets shown on World News in the evenings


There is satellite distribution involved for some, they're sent out alongside the various feeds for World Service radio, I'm sure you can find them on Lyngsat.

Looking at the video compilation above I don't see that. They all look similar or are identical apart from the title.


They don't have to be consistent as very few viewers will watch more than one. The main thing is they have elements of the established BBC News branding.

Are the more popular African programs the Focus On Africa feed I see in behind the scenes multiviewers?
