I think the use of the sofa looked awkward personally. Other than than that it looks good.
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.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television"
