Could someone explain to me why the BBC can’t build an elections hub at NBH? Is it the shear number of feeds coming it that can’t be handled or space?
Presumably space. BH is rammed to the gunnels already, the idea of having a fairly large office space and technical space that sits there empty for most of the time just won't be practical.
There's plenty of space at Elstree and that is where the big studio that is normally used for general elections is, so that's where they put it.
Then my next question would be: are most staffers at NBH going to be working an Elstree for the election? Could there be an area for the equipment to be setup?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
