Also, the papers presenter does the 2230 GMT summary on world, just before the papers start. The papers probably could’ve been in E this week and next due to katty and Christian finishing at 2225 so Christian could do the summary but it would’ve been pointless doing it for just two weeks.
I assume that’s why NaT never finishes bang on 2230 because it would clash with the world summary.
Although I do wonder why the presenter in Washington can’t do the headlines as they would have just finished WNA and the papers could start from E at 2240 with the sport bulletin between NaT and the papers starting.
I thought something was odd, they’re on in the far left of the studio not the rest though. I’ve noticed a few times the lights under the background screens on the left of the studio just behind the catwalk were flickering on and off and sometimes off altogether. Maybe that’s what was being fixed last night.

I think it's just an LED spot, that's how it's done in Studio B. You are right about the 'grill' section above the backdrop wall, usually there is a white LED strip illuminating it from the top. To be fair some of these sets have been in use for nearly nine years now (including the pre-launch rehearsals), I wouldn't be surprised if we are starting to see the odd hardware failure.
Is that a vent for the screens I am sure it’s not a studio feature in studio e.
I don't think it has any practical function, although am willing to be corrected. I assume that its supposed to somewhat emulate the big grill/lightbox feature that is above the curved videowall in Studio B.
Studio E has no set on that side of the studio, presumably to give as clear a view of the newsroom as possible, but also because I'm not sure that it would fit height wise. If you had a fully Studio C-style set in Studio E, that grill section would probably be obscured by the studio lights as the ceiling is only about 3m high.
It’s strange that studio C was getting some maintenance done last night and they didn’t fix it. Although, they were working before they moved studios, so maybe it just happened this morning when they moved back from E.
