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'.

How often does Breakfast have performances though and when they do they could surely do them elsewhere in the building - outside if it's fine.

I think the use of the sofa looked awkward personally. Other than than that it looks good. Do we know if this part of a wider new look for BBC Sport with elements of this being roles across Sports programming or are the new elements just designed for BBC Sport bulletins on BBC News?

You wouldn't be surprised if someone told you it was a rebrand for BBC Sport Scotland.

With the blue and yellow and 45° angles, it's a bit like the inverse of BT Sport's premiership rugby:

Like the new changes, the blue and yellow work very well together.

I'd like to see Breakfast in there, they could easy relight the set in orange and white. The only issue would be the size of the sofa, you can only really get one guest at a time on there.

The fact that there's almost nothing cosmetic that can't be easily changed might suggest that the set will have multiple uses...

Agree - not keen on the sofa at all and generally speaking sofas never look great with high desks.

It's a nice refresh, although slightly unnecessary IMO as the BBC Sport Centre is by far the best looking set on the BBC News channel anyway, hence why like others I think this revamp should have been about making it possible for Breakfast to share the set on a permanent basis.

Strange on BBC world news I was watching Sport Today but by the end the programme endboard became World Sportsday Surprised

Is that the new 'BBC Reith' font on the Sportsday text graphic?

Yes that's all we did 😳

Never mind the added functionality of a touchscreen (when it works 😂) a total new work flow for the catwalk screens, the creation of 3 presentation positions and the massive relight......
(Pity the artwork for the 4 light boxes and to cover the old newsroom artwork failed to turn up though!!!!)


Sorry I am only looking at these pictures. Again sports reports don't air when I'm around in the US.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

The World News Sport Today programme's titles always looked like a cheap edit to the Sportsday one, with a completely different logo. Have they been standardised now?
