Related to the above discussion, I noted recently that up in Granadaland they've recently launched a new video podcast, suitably titled 'From the North':



Looks like they've filmed it in their studio space, but not on the Granada Reports set and instead a fairly simple set-up in front of a massive screen.

Just noticed the ITV News bulletin on air just now is in a 30-minute slot. Usually only 15 minutes on a Sunday night. Are ITV looking to have a regular Sunday night News at Ten, or just a one-off?

It's back to 20 mins next week.

When discussed elsewhere it was suggested it might be because the Football Highlights aren't able to be aired until after 10:30, so they've padded out the slot until then.

That is some padding for ITV News, to provide a full 30 minute bulletin on a Sunday night.

I'm sure that is the Granada Reports set, I read somewhere they they have big curtains to cover the windows for when they film in the winter etc .

That makes sense. Nice to see ITV News capable of filling the slot adequately for a Sunday though.

At GiN, I note they have a digital studio which they use. Last time I saw it used was for a ITV News London special which was streamed after the London bulletin finished.

Is that the small studio ITV News Channel would use for the times they were kicked out of the main studio, as ITV national news had to rehearse? I remember ITV News Channel used to come from a small one camera locked off studio until later in 2004 when they moved into the second main virtual news set for the times they were out of the main "Theatre of News" set from 2004-2005.

No, they alternated between Studios 1 and 2 back then. There was a separate News Channel control room that could operate both. Of course one is still ITV News and the other is 5 News/Jeremy Vine.

Thanks for that. I do remember however a few weeks after the 2004 relaunch, the news channel went from a one camera lock off shot when they were kicked out of the main studio, to a full size studio, with good shots, and a large desk in the middle, with some walking around by the presenters.


They way you knew they were in the other studio was the lack of reflection on the desk, the whiter colour of the news desk, and the row of spot lights which went around the top of the curved green screen wall.

I wonder when they went from the single camera lock off, to the increased studio look in 2004?
