New Studio Design from 1st of March for RTL's breakfast tv offering 'Guten Morgen Deutschland'.


RTL's show is beaten in the key demo group by Sat.1's Fr├╝hst├╝cksfernsehen each day, and the new studio is part of an effort to gain back some ground. The show also recently moved its start time to half and hour earlier.

I heard Aktuell was supposed to be getting a new look and set this year.
Any update on that?

The GMD set is being called a 'transitional' set. In other words, it's a temporary measure. All RTL information programmes (Aktuell, Guten Morgen, Punkt 12, etc) will come from a new, single set from the summer. Work is underway on the refresh.
