Also just thinking of this, since the galleries at NBH aren’t interconnected, the staff on Live would have to start out in C’s gallery then switch very quickly to B’s. Granite automation makes it a lot easier to preprogrammed but still it may be a pain to decamp to another area so quick. I’ve seen the PBS simulcast TOTH half hour start in C and the back half end in B - so that’s what five minutes or less to move?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

I remember reading when BBC News moved to NBH in 2013 that while BBC World is in B, Studio C is used as the back up for the NC during the News at One if the channel decides to not take News at One. This was while A was unavailable as BBC London used this studio

The gallery team might change for the top of the hour. One team might not necessarily do an entire programme.

In practice it seems to be that they use a CSO / clip studio on these occasions. That maybe as a result of staffing changes after they moved in.

Really poor showing from the World News team in covering what's happening in Bolivia.

It only got a quick mention in the "In Brief" section on Newsday and even at that, it was completely outdated copy since it didn't mention the fact that a new president had been sworn in, an hour earlier.

Meanwhile Al Jazeera has three on-the-ground correspondents and is actually covering the fact that the country has a new president.

New Zealand isn't that far away!

CNN International has also been covering it well; a lot better than BBC News.
