Tyne Tees Look North (North East)
It's a really nice colour red and blue and it just shows that it's possible to have some something other than white and still look modern and up to date, despite Sky's religious sticking to boring white.

Some very nice transitions too.

The last election and this program show that Sky can still do excellent graphics when they want to.


I think excellent is massively overstating it - they look hastily thrown together at best.

Just after the 1pm top of the hour (rewind to it via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOacA3RYrXk) , Colin Braziers mic was left open while showing footage of NASA mission control, saying:

"Steps, like exercise steps" - after previously saying the astronauts had landed on the Kazakhstan steppe.
"Also I'm not sure if its the strongest hurricane on record, I made that up too" - Headline sequence had about Hurricane Michael.

I know Colin. He would maybe say that as a joke, but not seriously. Stop trying to smear the best news organisation in the UK

Maybe he would rummage through a dead passenger’s bag as a joke too?

How was that smearing if it happened,and best news organisation is just an opinion, largely viewed by Sky employees more than anything.

I like Colin, he's a very nice guy.

However that is extremely poor. Not does it only not reflect on Colin himself, but also on Sky News. Any Critic of Sky News and who believes it is full of fake news (it's not) can now point to that and say that it proves their point that the channel cannot be trusted.

Hang on, how exactly am I trying to smear it? I've only posted something that actually happened! Its the news channel I probably watch the most so I wouldn't just smear it for no reason!

If you look at data from other storms, this IS one of the largest.


It's not about whether the storm is big or not, it's about the fact a Sky News presenter has stated live on air (unintentionally or not) that he has made something up on two occasions.

Critics of Sky News and the trolls who frequent social media having a pop at Sky News for being 'fake news' now may well end up using this as proof of their claims and may well now ask, if that is being made, up, what else is being made up?

At the moment this seems not to have really gained much traction and Sky will be hoping it doesn't.

Seems they’ve really screwed up this afternoon - reporting the Saudi journalist’s body parts have been found in the garden of the consulate

Increasingly looks to be wrong and has been flatly denied by the prosecutor’s office in Istanbul. Isn’t being picked up anywhere else, unsurprisingly

But they’re still reporting it. Oops?
