Do many of the current ITV regional studios actually have outside space suitable for an entire live broadcast?


Calendar has an outside space which it hosted they YTV anniversary celebrations from recently.

And Central has an outside space too that it’s used in the past. But nowadays I think it’s shared with the other companies that occupy the building.

I think that's referred to as 'the quad' as it's an area behind the entrance and between buildings. The garden runs along the side nearest Radio Aire next door. It's easily seen from Google earth / maps.

Many moons ago part of this area was the beer garden. In fact the modern Calendar studio is built more or less on the spot where the YTV bar was.

Last night's News at Ten was on at the same time as the Love Island final, and when they talked about the show, they said the result hadn't been announced yet, "if you're wondering why we haven't mentioned it". As if anyone watching cared? Surely people who wanted to know who won the show would be watching Love Island and not the news?

Well yes. It's the same when there's a big football match on and the news reports on it - anyone interested will be watching the match

I remember Scotland Tonight doing a full show reviewing the opening ceremony of the Glasgow Commonwealth games with a panel of guests as the ceremony was still taking place on BBC ONE. It was like a live episode of gogglebox.
Iirc due to an overrun, they were off air by the time the ceremony finished!
