Re: Liquid News/Millbank sets - agree not the same set, but that "lots of plasmas in a row" seemed to be in vogue during that period as an easy way of "redressing" a set that would be used for a number of different shows. Liquid News's set was used for Celebdaq, The News Show (or whatever it was called that week), The Morning Show and the odd edition of HardTalk (60 Seconds used the studio but a different bit of set at the opposite end). Millbank's was used for Daily Politics, This Week, Straight Talk and again the odd edition of HardTalk.
The News Show didn't use the Liquid News set - it used the BBC Three News set (also used by 60 Seconds) at the lower end of the studio. Same was true of the 15 Minute '7 O'Clock News on BBC Three' which followed it.
When Liquid News came off-air in April 2004, the old Liquid News set was dismantled as was the then 60 Seconds/BBC Three News set. The latter went to Points West in Bristol (people often describe the Point West set as the old Liquid News set - it wasn't).
A new (much darker) set - which re-used a lot of plasmas and added three projectors - was created in the space previously occupied by the Liquid News set for the 30 minute '7 O'Clock News on BBC Three' which Eddie Mair and Tazeen Ahmad presented. This set was revamped again with two sofas around the time Paddy O'Connell took over from Eddie Mair.
Click Online and FastTrack also recorded sequences in the studio using a re-dressed version of the 60 Seconds set (with different graphics in the plasma wall).
