What exactly took so long for the changes? It looks like they moved the LCDs together and added a couch. The glasss etchings look the same.
I disagree. I think it looks quite different in terms of functionality. The only permanent BBC Sport branding is in the light box above the desk. Everything else can now be changed by lighting and on screen graphics. The dais is also different as it has more colours.
I do wish they would move BBC Breakfast into there, although there would be an issue about the absence of a 'performance area'.
