I thought there was a second gallery? Or is the cupboard just treated as a DTL when the Marr news bulletin comes from there?
I think the DTL point is fed into the Breakfast/NWT gallery and down to London but I may have misunderstood what people have previously said.
If the NWT bulletins are driven from the Breakfast gallery then why would they not be the sustaining feed for BBC1? Surely it just creates additional work needing to bring London or TW (on those rare occasions) in as on outside source? They both have the ability to opt out - and that's been the case since before the Salford move hasn't it?
Needn't create any significant extra work, as far as Breakfast's output is concerned they cut up London, and leave it there, releasing the production crew to produce the NWT opt. I don't recall seeing a second gallery on that floor
when I've visited ? Unless the gallery for the Sports pres studio downstairs is used ?
It's not that unusual to produce two programmes from a single gallery, sports OBs do it very often on big events, though usually from a smaller second vision mixer panel, hanging off one of the MEs
