I am fairly impressed with the TalkRADIO efforts to polish their plexiglass dividers in the greenscreen studio - they're difficult to spot if you're not looking specifically for them, especially the one between Graham and Neesom.

Knowing the attitudes of some of their presenters I'm surprised they have any plexiglass screens in the first place

I await the next 'stunt' featuring Mark Dolan.

Waiting for Mark Dolan to take a hammer to the plexiglass screens the next time he is on Plank of the Week.

The keying seems better than it was before, it’s still a pretty ugly set though.

And the keying is the reason why the acrylic dividers are (almost) invisible.

For a radio set, they haven't done a terrible job - obviously, lots needs improving, such as making the virtual white bit of the desk look more realistic and removing the awful virtual people in the back of the guest shot, and maybe adding the possibility of a big virtual monitor when there's only one guest and social distancing is needed. With the right tweaks they could make it look better, the St. Pauls backdrop looks realistic.

It appears that TalkRADIO has changed its weekend schedule, with Penny Smith and Mike Parry no longer making appearances. This can be seen from the schedule (https://talkradio.co.uk/radio/schedule) and going by this Tweet appears to be a permanent change.

Kevin O'Sullivan is now the weekend breakfast anchor on talkRADIO, his mid morning weekend show is now hosted by a dual presenting team of Patrick Christys in the studio Alex Phillips at her home.

Kevin still does his Friday evening show, so he doesn't get much sleep on a Friday, considering his evening show ends at 10pm, and he is back on air at 7am Saturday. Hardly worth him going home.

When Alexandra Phillips is mentioned I think of this:

To keep things vaguely on topic I've removed a number of recent posts which had nothing to do with presentation.
