The programme is a lot more tabloid - focussed, and the studio is awful. The only good thing is Kirsty Young !
I have to agree. The American style Sky have given it really doesn't do a lot for it. The lighting is terrible - all of the presenters always look so pale, and although the studio design is alright, the colours are vile together. And I haven't even talked about the content...
I don't understand this idea that Sky seem to have that American = better. And I'm not being snobbish, but why we just can't keep our own British style that we've had for years is beyond me.
benjy is right. The style of British TV presentation is much better than the fake American style of "TV presentation", if you can call it that. I don't totally agree with newscasters standing up, which 5 News revolutionised.
Charlie Stayt is a brilliant newsreader. Like other people has said here on the 'Stayt' thread, it seemed likely he would transfer over to ITV's News Channel when ITN unfortunately lost the Five news contract.
Sky has taken five news from a reliable and friendly service and taken it for the worse.
