Would anyone know which studio will be used for the Election programme tonight as seen on Huw's twitter. Looks awfully like it's one of the NBH studios rather than Elstree.

Alos, several listings have only mentioned Reeta who'll provide analysis with a giant touchscreen. No mention of Kuenssberg, Vine, Maitlis....

Seems rather scaled back.

Anyone got any view on the 'apparent' lack of the usual Election team?

Local elections have always been scaled back compared to the nationals. Historically coming from Millbank. Looking forward to the coverage coming from B...

How come it's not coming from Millbank this time then?

Millbank doesn't tend to host off-peak/weekend output these days (This Week aside which is not long for this world).
Towards the end of TVC's life they came from the old World set/News 24 launch set (I forget the N-number, forgive me).
Really hope Huw wears the sweater.

I wonder if we'll see the Ten come from B tonight? I doubt it, but thought I'd put the thought out there.

I doubt it as Newsnight will still probably be there tonight using the desk side as they have been during these rehearsals.

Another shot on Studio B with the election setup. I smell a little bit of Studio C vibe... (Credits: @huwbbc)

Can't stand that background, it looks so cheap and grainy. Lacks colour, a vast contrast to the actual newsroom. Am surprised it hasn't been re-shot.
