The recording of 1pm to 5pm was automatically published by YouTube using its 4 hour timeshift of the live stream. Either someone forgot to untick the box to turn automatic publishing off, or they left it on thinking it'll do the whole day.

Something that I found interesting was that Gallery 21 can also control the studio at Millbank. Can the Millbank studio floor work into a gallery on-site as well as into Osterley? I recall an occasion when the previous studio failed (the sound mixer died?) and they decamped to Millbank, so presumably it has its own gallery too?


Not sure if it was always the case, because I remember when the automation first launched it was notable that Millbank based programs seemed to work almost flawlessly in comparison to their Osterley counterparts, which makes me think at first things at Millbank were being controlled from there, but now I'd say they're all on the same system.

Appreciate someone saving it, the official channel does still have it up for now, and rather hope they keep it there as a nice record. But a recorded version could be nice as potential education tool and something to look back on as I sadly suspect sky won't keep it available long term.

You're not seeing them in shot, but there is floor to ceiling height imagery of past significant news events around the office - most are in between the windows. The wider campus as a whole (even the building they're in) has imagery, art, quotes etc all over the place. Many of the meeting rooms are themed up (the Ocean one has been seen a lot today, but there are Game of Thrones, Riviera, Fortitude etc themed ones).

Definitely not a drab place to work.

Here we go again...
Its fine, we all see that its basically a sterile white box and some screens scattered around at different heights and angles. Its ok. Looks like a definite step down from the previous location. And just because its not a studio doesn't mean it doesnt have be a visually pleasant and a space to get inspired or feel pride in your work environment. Work environment fuels creativity as well. So the lack of a studio space is irrelevant.


It's not Sky News' job to impress you by making the newsroom look sexy. It serves its purpose and would be a waste of money as it's almost never seen on-air.


The channel is running at a loss, I'd much rather see the money that's been mentally provisioned for shocking fuchsia-coloured walls, to be invested in a new studio or if we're to indulge: journalists, reporters and editors.
New Zealand isn't that far away!

The Guardian take on Sky News/Sky News Raw is one I doubt many on here would share - apparently Sky News (the main channel itself) is too exciting and 'like a circus' and everyone looked bored on the Sky News Raw coverage.
The article is like many Stuart Heritage ones - nowhere near as witty as he thinks it is and sneery more than anything.

I do wonder what a Guardian 'behind-the-scenes' broadcast of its offices would be like - probably a meeting to decide who's going to write the latest identity politics article/fawning Beyonce piece.

I'm afraid the Guardian's media coverage has been awful and sneering for quite a few years now. They used to be extremely high quality.

While I have only watched the first hour so far, I found it interesting to see how stories are relayed and what the studios look like. It's not as polished as the main channel is - but then that's sort of the idea, hence "Raw"

It's not supposed to be an all singing all dancing dressed up behind-the-scenes tour but an honest one. The only downside is that everyone is rather aware of the situation so most people would of been on guard and watching their words making it less likely to listen in on a producer getting stressed or someone saying things they shouldn't.

At the same time makes it a good educational resource. You couldn't really share the old BBC Gallery talkbacks as examples in schools, as most of the clips out there might not set the best examples for language!

So I was was watching and skimming through chunks and saw nothing of the DC Bureau until the end. Given how they didn’t feature it until the end (especially since the US work day was well underway) I thought it was damaged from the fire. But they showed it off at the very end. They are still in the Fox offices on the fifth or sixth floor that didn’t suffer any damage. None the less it appeared very cramped - especially the liveshot position that’s in the edit booth next to an editing bay.

Additionally one thing I found odd was when they talked to the man who worked in ingest said that they receive the SxS cards they sometimes have to wait for the editing booth or NOC to be ready to ingest. Isn’t the point and key benefit of file based editing and storage that you can easily import the data rather than have to wait for it to be ingested in real time?
