On a positive note (subjective of course), should Sky just offer Omarosa Manigault Newman a presenting job, she's certainly been on enough in the past couple of months.


If their NBC News overlords hear about that, it will automatically be vetoed. haha.

Best wishes to Sophy Ridge who has tested positive for COVID-19. Stephen Dixon doing her show on Sunday.



Does Graham Norton have Norton Security installed on his computer?

Stephen did a good job from what I seen on what I think is his first time presenting the show? He’s very much one Sky’s main anchors these days who literally can present any programme. Sophy says she’ll be back this week.
Also unrelated, Kimberley Leonard has also been isolating after testing positive. Wishing them both well.





Adam Boulton is back in the UK after the inauguration. I wonder if he’ll be broadcasting from home again or if Colin Brazier is doing another of week of All Out Politics.

Stephen has presented Sophy Ridge on Sunday a number of times before.
My contribution is small but you are welcome.

Boulton says he's back on tomorrow - presumably from home since journalists / TV production personnel are no longer on the list of exemptions.

So, that basically means for television sport coverage - there's going to be a lot of off tubing going on for commentators when UK teams go abroad to play games.

Interesting list of non-exeptions there..

Interesting to see that Adam Boulton's home studio (backdrop at least) looks better than the actual Westminster studio screen.

True words. Don't understand the problem that in the year 2020 real background screens look far worse than a green screen or just a well adjusted TV with all the new technology. In the 2005er the newswall and everything looked far superior and more authentic, you couldn't even distinguish the 2008 newswall background from the real studio part. That's the problem when the studio as in this case the Westminster one is too small and the distance between background screens and TV presenter is too tight which makes the lighting for the presenter shine on the screens and completely deteriorates its CONTRAST!

Higher pixel density video walls need diffusion filters to reduce moire. Soft lighting - needed for Kay’s show - and diffusion filters causes the problem.

Yes and no. You can spend more money these days and get very fine pitch LED wall panels now that are so fine that they don't moiré across most shot sizes you will need, and thus don't need diffusion (which washes out LED if you can't keep the light off it). These do come with a much higher price tag.
