Pebble Mill made great use of these on the chat show 'Pebble Mill.'

On screen, the studio looked pretty large, but when I went there on a visit, the studio was REALLY small, much smaller than I expected. They have their uses, because they made a small studio look absolutely massive. Smile

Pleeeeease no split desk like on BBC World - it makes the presenters look like they're sitting in bumper cars! I'm not a big fan of the World studio - it's OK, but not great. IMHO there's not a lot wrong with the current N24 studio, although there's always room for improvement! I really hate their 'soft' area (if you can call it that) though - this should definitely get a makeover.

IMHO BBC Crap 24 has the better studio, BBC World's is OKish, but BBC News 24 is a lot more better, and of course it has a dedicated discussion studio unlike BBC World which has do everything in the main studio except Sport Today!

However I still think BBC News 24 needs more atmoshphere, but then again we get enough from BBC News 24 weather!

The studio itself is quite small. Its tucked into a corner in Stage 6 and most of the action is happening infront of the studio rather than behind. If you go through the gallery which you can see at the back of the studio and turn left your in the BBC World Newsroom.

Is it not because they use some widescreen camera thing?  I don't know what's it's called, but they use it on the National News, and it makes the studio look much bigger!


Wide angle lens

it was also used in the 1993-99 virtual set.

Most cameras are slightly wide-angle, not by much though.
In N24, only 2 cameras have wide angle lens's - the weather presenters camera and the 2nd presenters camera

What used to be in the area that the N24 studio is now?

From the video it looks like it was just a normal office,with windows and computers. are the windows now blacked out?

The News24 area is in stage VI, which was built as a new centre for all BBC News in 1998. So be fore News24 was there it was just air!!!

However the set used to be facing the otherway during the flags era

It's that close is it, I thought BBC World's studio was on the other side of TVC:?

The reason i'm asking is that I can see the gallery on the right hand side of the set, but if you turn left, then you end up in the background of the N24 set don't you, OK, i'm confused!
