A question.about live with Lucy Hockings, it's clear from that video she will be using Studio B but unless I am mistaken her programme is scheduled to start at 10am GMT the same time as Victoria Derbyshire which is also in studio B how will that work?

I presume that one or the other (most probably LH) will decamp to C for the first hours, following the same pattern of the erstwhile GMT programme.

What was wrong with GMT not a fan of these named shows as quite often the named presenter is never there, although to be fair to Lucy Hockings she has been on regular.

I think the original idea behind GMT was that it started at 12noon GMT and was supposedly anchored around that timezone being midway through the day in Europe and at the start of the day in the US. When NBH opened it was also the first daily world programme to come from studio B so had an air of “flagship” about it each day.

Extending the brand to begin earlier made the name slightly awkward and, owing to Derbyshire, it had to start in studio C before moving to B. Lucy has been the long time presenter so rebranding the programme around her name is richly deserved and very sensible for the channel.

Yes they used to open the programme with “it’s midday in London, 7am in New York and X o’clock TOP STORY LOCATION”.

It is a bit odd the way the programme changes studio half way through - and it looks much better in B IMO.

I think it looks better in C it’s nicely lit b is good but has to many dark areas especially that gap in the middle which looks like there’s all sort of equipment gubbins going on.
