John Suchet went to Five News as a replacement to Kirsty I think. Presenting the 11.30am bulletin?

My contribution is small but you are welcome.

Slightly off topic, but I remember that period when Sky first started providing Five News. The set would have been perfect for Blue Peter, but not a news programme. I never quite got the concept behind the staircase to a needlessly raised presentation point.

The sets at Sky became even more bizarre as the years passed, at one time resembling something for a lottery draw.

John Suchet also hosted Going for Gold for C5, which seemed quite random.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

He may have presented at 1130 I don't know, but originally joined to present the 1730 and 1900 bulletins Thursday and Friday before covering Kirsty Young's maternity. Ended up staying two years

Did they use that upstairs bit to do the 2 minute news updates through the night or have I made that up?

But yes weird set. I vaguely remember thinking it looked like either an old CBBC presentation set or the Xchange set. Either way having a studio comparable to a kid's show was never a good thing!

Yes, it does remind me of 1997 CBBC, when they finally moved out of the broom cupboard and into the large Studio TC9 at Television Centre, which was huge compared to the broom cupboard they had been used to.

Yes, though CBBC had been using Pres A for some of their output which was a reasonable size for what they wanted (though small compared even to the smallest main block studios at the centre (TC2/7). (Unless I’ve misunderstood and you’re referring to Pres A being a broomcupboard and not ‘the’ broomcupboard?)

Yes they did. I thought it looked quite nice, compared to the one they used in the Natasha Kaplinsky era at least.
