A shame to see the show demoted to a cupboard after their biggest scoop in years. Seems the only bit of furniture to make it to the temporary set was Emily's pink chair. I'm not the biggest fan of the pink sofas they use but they're part of the brand, and have now been ditched for a generic BBC news round table.

I do really like the curved Newsnight branding on the front of the desk - but the desk itself looks awful.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Not overly keen on the set. It does seem a bit cramped in there. But it's temporary so I'll live.

The worst bit is the peanut shaped desk with the elongated Newsnight covering. It seems a very bodge job and those desks aren't really designed for use for sit down interviews.

Ah, the Victoria Derbyshire-style desk strikes again! Absolutely baffles me how the desk for her show ending up being adopted as part of the set by loads of World Service studios - when the BBC opened their African news hub (or whatever they call it) a while back for some reason the same desk turned up there too.

I get that it's easy to shift off-screen if you're tight on space but it looks naff and doesn't match the rest of the set design, especially in the way seen on Newsnight tonight, where both sides of the set in that studio are seen, including the side with the 'normal' Studio B-esque desk!

Seriously impressed with what they've done with that tiny studio. The only thing that lets it down is the dire mini desk, but pleased there's still a softer area and a large screen stand-up area to illustrate stories.

If anything, the set would be perfectly suitable for Derbyshire in addition.

If you look her hairs blowing and audible noises of the road. There were only about 15 minutes between the CBS This Morning interview which ended at 7:17 AM and the GMA interview which occurred at about 7:36AM. The short time frame seems like it would be cutting it close. I could see the ABC team (or perhaps CBS*) sending a photog to meet Emily at for the interview.

* It is not unheard of in the US for the high profile interviews on the Sunday morning political shows for them to send one network crew to a guest if they are booked on multiple networks. Not quite sure how they work it out at the end - if its just an understanding that say CBS would provide the uplink one week, ABC the next and NBC the one after or if they are reimbursed.

Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Turnham Green, perhaps?
I did in the past see Sky News send a sat truck to Television Centre to interview a politician who'd been to do the Today programme - presumably their diary meant they couldn't get to Osterley or Millbank too, so instead did it down the line from in front of a brick wall on Wood Lane.
