I suspect it is an election that those who count the pennies at the BBC will observe closely.
They already have the large set though, wonder if it might cost more to come up with something new to fit in NBH
They don't have to build the set though and presumably NBH will be little more than using a bigger desk, which again they already have.
It would be a huge shame to see the large scale election sets disappear for good, but when you compare it to what ITV and Sky do in these days of "delivering quality first" if it can be done at NBH for less then that might just have to be the case moving forward. Of course though what we see on screen on election night in terms of the set is probably only a small fraction of the cost of covering each election.
I will certainly miss the huge sets as well, Just thinking about what they could do...
They could put Vine in Studio A with his big swingometer and with VR make it look like an extension to Studio B, similar to the virtual screen they had last year?
