Another slight issue I have with this revival (and I can remember watch the Ed Stewart era shows) is that part of the show was always supposed to be about variety, and using the BBC TV Theater (and other theatrical locations when TVT avalibility dictated) emphasised that.
It had a different 'sound' and the high stage forced the performers to project themselves far more than they would in a studio..
.. Wonder why they've gone for a 'proper' studio for this?
I mean, it's not like there's a proper theater like the Lowery Theater that isn't around 200ft from the studio door, they could have used..
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.
