it was down to a technical error, rather than a deliberate presentational decision, that the programme ended as it did.


Are the camera shots and audio controlled by computer then? I can't see how someone pulling down an audio fader and cutting to another camera (surely two seperate people atleast?) as a 'technical error' but maybe your just saying a generic term.

You're lying. I heard that Rupert Murdoch himself intervened and told them to crash out in such a way that would divert attention away from the interview amongst highly influential commentators such as on this site.

It's all true.


I took the call myself.

I resign.

Back to the presentation and specifically the box a comment made elsewhere today about brands usually being rundown in advance of a rebrand could be relevant here. It's difficult for the box to really establish itself when the old studio (and elements of the look in the other studios) are still on screen - plus probably doesn't help a graphical refresh wasn't associated with it too.

I've always hated it when revamps are done in stages, much preferring one clean break from one look to the next. Obviously the problems people have here with the box would still be somewhat evident if it was used 24/7 but I do think the contrast between the old and the new being so stark (literally in this case) makes it difficult for the box to shine in the way it's perhaps intended too.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

I really am not a fan of Sophy's presenting style. This has come much too early in her career and I feel Sky are giving her too much responsibility. She got a break moving from the NOTW to Sky as a politics reporter and I believe that is what she should still be doing.

Small things like her saying thank you for an illuminating interview to TM really annoy me. It's something you would never hear an accomplished interviewer say.

Someone with experience like Colin Brazier (who has filled in on the Murnaghan Sunday programme previously) would have been much more ready for a flagship Sunday show.

Seems pretty early to be making judgements like that.

What I've found strange is how in all the press this week they've marketed as Sky entering the Sunday morning political programming game despite Murnaghan being in the slot for a few years and Adam Bolton before him.

I'm guessing because ITV have now got Peston on Sunday that the press are now seeing this as a bigger fight between BBC, ITV and Sky.
