Baffled that the appearance of a logo used from 2002-2005 in front of Burley has not been mentioned so far?


Yes they could've given her a slightly smarter looking lectern!

It strikes me that they probably just got hold of the lecture to hold notes on (hence the industrial clamp to the right) and the logo was probably ripped off a pelicase to cover someone elses.

Looks like a monitor or a light to me, just with an old sticker on. I'd imagine it wasn't ever intended to be in shot.

No, it’s a lectern (similar to a music stand in design). It’s just a bit ancient...

My bad, I stand corrected!

The US election plans sound great.

Lovely looking AR in that preview picture there. Wonder if they’ll go to the effort of a similar sequence to that of the 2019 Election.

That’s the plan - more focused on the virtual White House than on Sky Central this time though.

Good to see how being part of Comcast has allowed them to share data with NBC News and presumably the Sky teams in other parts of the country will be sharing NBC sat trucks.

Seeing that, I'm now doubly hoping that the BBC don't try and have another crack at AR.

Seems the producers have been on a trolley dash around Best Buy. Kay has a new lectern today Very Happy

Why is Burley doing her programme outside in the cold in Washington in the early hours of the morning? Couldn’t they fly her out nearer time of the election?
Have you washed your hands?
