Pointless has, tonight, aired the first episode in the refreshed studio. They've also given some tweaks to the graphics too but nothing special.

The new set has lost the pit in the floor that was previously there and its a lot more prime time in style. The floor is very shiny, they've gone for brighter colours and there are more lighting fixtures:

Compared to the previous set:

I actually think the graphical changes make it harder to read:

I was expecting something more impressive but it already feels like it'll date quickly compared to the previous set which had aged well. All of the lighting fixtures and shiny floor make it feel more XFactor than 5.15pm quiz show.

The changes are only really noticeable when you post the two pics side by side.

A few celeb editions on the new set have aired, whilst some other recent "new" episodes have been on the shelf for around a year. Indeed over the weekend it was mentioned that Tricia Penrose and Bill Maynard had recorded one recently, so it'll be interesting to see how long it is till that airs. Never great though when the contestants don't live to see the episode broadcast.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?
