Lines like "the worst presentation I have seen on television" and calling output "a big joke presentationwise" really don't do this forum much favours, particularly amongst those who work in the industry.

Is it particularly great presentation? Not really. However, it's more than sufficient for what Sky require for those hours and is pretty clean and minimalist on-screen. If it was worst presentation seen on screen, you'd be imagining the average member of the public would be up in arms over it/mocking it whereas your average Joe Bloggs probably has no strong views on the presentation of those hours.

Midnight til 6am is coming from studio 6 today. I think there maybe some problems with the big screen in the glass box; Anna Jones (at 11pm was) sitting in a different position and the screen is out of vision including on the Press Preview where the guests are usually on the screen.


Which shot did they end up using?

They switched to this half way through News at Ten, while the Press Preview was done with a three way boxed split screen, with Anna in the centre.

Dermot already is - and has been back in Millbank since yesterday - as he returned before the others.

Kay back in the studio, and still going on about how great it is. How big it is. How fabulous it is.

Let's be honest...it's not great. It's bland.

Adam Boulton still is quarantine and leading the presentation this afternoon with the autumn statement from his home set up.
A little odd to stay with the temporary studio for a chunk of the day when you could have had someone in the actual Westminster studio or even the glass box.

Most of Sky News is done with OS boxes and topic wallpaper shots, so making editorial choices based on preferred talent /experience available rather than which presenter can sit in a studio and talk to a screen rather than a camera and multisource is eminently sensible.

One thing 2020 has cemented — we're long past the days anchor sat in studio is the default on any news channel
