There is a wish to refresh the set and the newsroom. Don't expect to much though as BBC World has no budget!


Yes BBC News 24's gets ever brighter, while World is going in the opposite direction, I guess that explains why no one wants to switch the lights on in the BBC World newsroom!


The lights in the World Newsroom are kept deliberatly low for Health and Saftey reasons. People have to work in there for 10 hour shifts. There is no natural lighting and if the television lights were to high then everyone would have a spliting headache by the end of the day.

Indeed, but as I said don't expect to much. It all depends on how much money they can squeze out of BBC Worldwide. Whaever it is it will be a fraction of how much News24 had for their relaunch

So they're going to put a bedside lamp from Ikea under the desk then. Fab.

Why is bbc werld goin to be bloo? how can i get bbc werld, it wont werk on feeview.


*sigh* if only it were a joke. Although it would be nice if World didn't go News 24 and tried to make something on it own, something different. Which means not badly copy News 24 all the time. Also getting presentation that isn't the same as the graphics would nice...

And if any noobs do read this, you can't get BBC World in the UK... unless you point a satellite dish at a satellite called hotdog... hotpigeon... hopscotch?

World will always follow News24 closely because it relies on sharing many resources with that channel.

I don't think BBC World needs that great a change - the News 24 set seems a bit too plastic and childish for me, I much prefer the more serious and "upmarket" newsroom. The World Desk is much better than the News 24 one also.

BBC World was at its best in 2001 - 2003, the music was better, the titles were good and it had a good mix of presenters across all programmes - the countdown was excellent. I think more open shots of presenters are needed, like how BBC World was pre-2002. It makes the background seem more active, and less stuffy.

How come all BBC News looked and felt far more polished and classier during the mid to late 1990s?

It seems the BBC has expanded itself so much, that some departments are getting an ever-decreasing slice of the finacial pie.

If the BBC axed some of it's services such as 1Xtra, Five Live Extra, Parliament, 6 Music etc. the money could be returned to the core BBC departments such as news, drama, comedy and sport.

Yes, i agree.

Compare Breakfast now, to Breakfast News in the late 90's - it's a pale and watered down news programme - but I do now find the One better comapred to the 1990's - in fact I prefer it over todays Six. Fiona doesn't suit the Ten, but i think George suits it better than him being on the Six

It used to be brighter before in the World newsroom, hence those circular lights, at least someone switched one on today!

BBC News 24 workers must work the same, they have a much brighter newsroom, I am sure they must go home with a headache every day then!
