No reason it won't remain - the restrictions are no worse than the original restrictions where news programming continued.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

The restrictions are no worse, but as this is a local lockdown, things are a little different. People from outwith Aberdeen are being discouraged from travelling into the city. (There is talk police will start to enforce fines if the advice is ignored). I can't speak for the whole team but I believe Andrea lives in Angus. With that in mind, we might see a slight tweaking of presenters. We shouldn't see anything significantly different on-screen as journalists are classed as key workers, and reporters are largely working from home. However, it'll be a bit of a logistical pain for STV, happening on the week that Aberdeen is in charge of the output!

Today’s lunchtime bulletin has to be one of the shortest I’ve seen in a while they ran one story that was extremely short and then went to the weather.

Is the programme only coming from Aberdeen this week?

I think so, it may have just been me but it felt shorter than that.

Is it going back to Glasgow next week? I think it’s a lot better coming form Aberdeen because of the HD output and at the end when the lights go out over the desk and the camera zooms out behind the other cameras is a nice touch.

Aberdeen has always dimmed the lights at the end of the bulletin, even going back to the days of Grampian and North Tonight.

STV North has Ross overdrive automation since the HD upgrade, so requires less staff than Glasgow (don't think that's automated yet)

Probably a much more cost effective operation than Glasgow on days Scotland Tonight isn't on.

Anyone know if Glasgow is on Overdrive?

I wonder why it’s not done on the central programme’s

For Central, they've always kept the lights up going back to Scotland Today in the mid 90s.

Different production teams have their own way of doing things I guess.

Is there any news on when Glasgow will move to HD output I assume they’ll have to wait until Edinburgh gets HD cameras because of the central programme it would be strange to have one segment in HD and the next on not in HD.
