Looks like the BBC News America set in Washington DC is due for a refresh. Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere - I couldn't find mention...




Is that a little set with a green screen/curtain?


And more to the point, does this qualify as the reason why Katty Kay appears to be in a different studio for tonight's Beyond 100 Days.

Is that the last 2003 era desk still in use?


Yup, even was retained when they retooled the studio to go HD a few years ago.

The desk has been there for ages. They’ve had the same set design for almost 8 years it seems. When they retooled the studio for HD I think some monitors were replaced but the design wasn’t noticeably different.

Edit : The current set goes back to 2008 when Matt Frei still hosted....

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

FYI, it was mentioned on the BBC World News | October 2019 Onwards thread.

Looks like it could be quite major work going by how long they appear to be out of the studio.
