I think the weather person in the weather shed on the roof makes for a much more interesting forecast especially when it’s raining. Snowing or baking hot .

If you look closely at the picture of the studio the autocue pedal isn’t where the weird couch seat thing is does that mean that there may be another chair for the anchor to sit in?

Edit: on a closer look the keyboard and mouse isn’t in the position for the couch thing either.

Yes - the picture on page 8 shows that there's a desk chair for the presenter to sit in.

That set feels so simple which makes it's feels very big. The desk in front of the screen is also a nice touch. It's really really good.

In recent times; I have felt more attracted to seeing bigger TV sets that incorporate a simple design of floor space whilst the floor space is worked well for the presenters that hosts a programme. I think Studio 5 in RTÉ is one example where this style of design works so well with News & Current Affairs and Sports programmes especially with the coverage of Election 2020 earlier in the year & their limited presentation coverage of The UFEA Champions League.

I think it looks stunning, and that's just one wall of the studio. Can't wait to see it on air, wish we had a date?

I would say September or October.


I reckon the last bulletin from Broadcasting House, Cardiff will be on a Sunday then the new studio launches on Monday

We need to see it in action but from initial shots I think it doesn't need a desk at all.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I think there is already enough 'standing/walking' news. It doesn't add anything that can't be done from a desk.
