The new logo & BBC copyright under it looks a little misaligned on the screen. What size is it when it's come up there?

This studio appears to have a glass window which looks out onto the foyer.



If you play the video, and can endure the random advert, there are some other views include pictures of the public walkway bit of the building.


If that studios is where a public walkway (having trouble playing the video) I hope it’s bullet proof and or sound dampening (or the curtains are). If it’s a walkway I imagine there won’t be security to screen people or will there ?

Edit: I got the video to work. I imagine on bad weather days there will be people congregating in the public walkway and with those open plate audiences I imagine it might get loud giving it’s City Center location.


I had some involvement with the site during the design stage. I seem to recall the foyer is designed to be a publically assessible walk through area when the BBC choose it to be so. It's not the same as the plaza area of NBH London, which is a public right of way. I'm sure that movement will be restricted if the studio is being used for anything other than public participation broadcasts etc


So they could shut it down with no need to notify the city like NBH appears to need to do with Westminster City Council. (Even thought the right of way is BBC property).
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

It will be possible to walk through the foyer, primarily people getting off the train and heading for the Principality Stadium was how I heard it mentioned by a BBC Wales grown up. I'm not sure why they'd want that, but hey. Like any other private building they can lawfully shut the front door to anyone they like (a bit like anyone's home etc)

Still don’t know why they’d take the security risk in opening it up. I realize I’m thinking in US terms with regular (just the kind via email), bomb threats and then risk of shooters targeting media organizations.

I'm sure the BBC will control access according to the UK authorities' security level status. At the end of the day it's a moderate interest building, in a provincial UK city, no worse or better than the large shopping mall a short distance away.
'Shooters' as you call them are way down the list of potential nutters in the UK

This isn’t the news studio. This is the general purpose TV studio.

ITV Wales News has had a view of Cardiff Bay since the 2004 relaunch at least.
