Wishful thinking, but I'd love there to be a slight rearrangement of the studio, in terms of the sofa, to maximise the effectiveness of the use of floor space when Breakfast move in so it doesn't look too much of a change from TC7 to here. I know it won't happen though!

Nope - it wont be happening... although we will see more use of that area to the right of the screens for performances / items which require more space off the sofa when Breakfast settles in.

Thought so! Any other nuggets from Breakfast? Do you know about when presenting rota (incl. sport presenter) will be announced, for example?

Also, what was the reason the Breakfast/NWT didn't get the great big space where the BBC Sport domestic studio is? They deserve a much bigger studio!

The MOTD/Football Focus studio is in another building.

The News Channel Sports presentation area to be seen very soon is an area within the "office" space on the ground floor of Quay House.

Remember initially it was going to just be the NWT studio which is in a corner of the 2nd floor. Breakfast was added afterwards

So this studio only big enough for one presenter then. How will children have been able to cope hearing the news without the banter of two hosts sharing each others sentences!
It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.

Was there anything released explaining why they began to use two presenters? One presenter was always enough for many years, and works well for the updates.

I second many views about the use of this set. It looks a lot better than their usual studio. They have clear large screens, can clearly display story images, and even though it's (what I'm guessing is) lit perspex, it looks a lot better than a barco wall. I do wonder why when they moved, they decided to keep the barcos instead of trying something different. I know that they may not have a large space, but it's a permanent set. Through the 90's & early 00's a desk to perch on & a screen relayed everything well. With this in mind, a studio similar to the smaller North West studio could work better.

I know I'm not their demographic, but when I've caught it before pointless, the two don't seem to add anything to the bulletin.
There's been a slow decline terms of the way they present the news over the years. After John Craven, with people like Juliet Morris & Krishnan Guru-Murphy, it seemed to be a very serious news programme, just with the emphasis of simplifying the stories for the younger audience. This imo continued through Julie Etchingham, Chris Rogers, Kate Gerbeau (nee Sanderson), and Lizo Mzimba (when not reviewing Harry Potter), then started to shift somehow with Becky Jago & Ellie Crisell, and has continued to present day, where they don't seem to be that serious at all.
Maybe it's the problem as we grow ever older, and a use of rose tinted glasses, or maybe its just how society has progressed.
