Of course there isn't one sub-region that's
live and one that's
Maybe it's different in where you are but one prog is
live on Calendar - news dictates which show is recorded as it's a large area to get to locations. Often it's a full 30mins and sometimes the recorded version ends after the weather man had his 'show and tell' and joins the live prog for the end. All the other bulletins have a complete 'aslive' recording which is transmitted at the same time as the fully live one.
Do the pre-recorded shows avoid "Live" captions for crosses to reporters - and indeed do the live shows as well so it isn't obvious what day they're live and what day they're pre-recorded.
I know before OFCOM allowed the pre-records for a period Central had two studios in the one building broadcasting live. Was it the same for Calendar and Meridian too?
I think Meridian was covered when Thames Valley Tonight started or near its death.
Basically they had 3 (maybe 2) studios.
Central East moved into Gas Street in 2004 and the main studio where CNW and CITV Pres came from was split into two (when CNW and CNE both got the first iteration of the generic set, CNW's was the first on air and they also had the larger 'half' of the studio, so their set was always bigger than CNE (and I think bigger than the other installs that followed too)).
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...
