There appeared to be an sync issue with Kimberley's mic in the Glass Box at midnight, VT's were playing out normally. Was sorted out for the cross to the sport.


There were also problems with one camera on College Green this morning when Adam Bolton was on. I wondered if he was trying to do an impression of a ventriloquists dummy at one point.

Wouldn’t it have been safer to do a screen record, edit (if necessary) and playout the video rather than risk it?

I mean, you could, but the whole point was Sarah demonstrating how it worked. They would have had to record it in a break and then play it out again to get the same effect otherwise it would look odd.

Or get somebody else to do it as a package.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Looking at these pics, the blue lighting is nice don't get me wrong but it definitely would make me think of News at 10 or a late night bulletin rather then afternoon show that Sarah was presenting at the time

Yeah, you’re right. (It’s purple really to fit with the title card for the strand. It just looks more blue on camera than in real life.)

Has the government minister who goes around the news studios daily stopped going on Sky News? I didn't notice it yesterday, and today Alok Sharma has been on BBC Breakfast, but not on Sky. Previously, they had their slot at 7:10 ish. May be nothing, but the government have been refusing to go on Good Morning Britain for months.

They don’t always get a minister. Sometimes it’s an editorial decision and sometimes it’s a ministerial decision.

Edit: although it looks like he was supposed to be on...

Beth Rigby in Westminster with newsroom behind her and the walls there look to have had the ‘glass box beige’ treatment. Normally looks really fresh and white in the background there but dull and yellowish today. Any ideas what’s changed?

White balance is wrong on the ENG camera.
