That is very good point that nobody thought of! anyhow moving on.

Somebody needs to tell whoever is responsible for the ticker on the BBC News Channel that polling stations closed 17 minutes ago.

EDIT: Eventually removed about 50 minutes after becoming inaccurate.

Oh gosh! That background looks ghastly! They are not two floors up from the newsroom. CRINGE!

Reeta is a former BBC Political Correspondent, so perhaps not as strange a booking as it might seem.

And she's held the news summary role since 2015 I believe, so she's not exactly a brand new election face.

Reading the news summary is hardly stepping into a role previously held by Vine/Maitlis. It does sound like they’ve combined two roles into one.

Is Newsnight likely to come from B?


Newsnight is from A this evening, in a simulated version of the Studio B hard area but using the standard Studio A desk.

It’s a quite well done. I thought it was the right hand side of B to start with like it’s been the rest of the week.

But defo A.

Studio A serves which purpose generally?

News summaries tend to be done by the duty overnight presenter (usually Mike Embley) other than for general elections.

I’m embarrassed to ask for a reminder but...

Please could someone outline what studio is what. #sorry

Nice of the News Channel to give us an 84 second countdown into the special. It's not even the top of the hour so I was surprised to see the proper countdown.

The blurry newsroom backdrop looks as crap as feared. Nice desk though.
