As a pres fan, I should in theory like the slick, well-lit, styled affairs offered up by the likes of Global. But in all honesty, to me they feel a bit too false, generic and purely cosmetic shine - a bit like the output of some of the group's stations, a cynic might add. Feels like they are just all part of a formula, nice and shiny and packaged up to consume.
I prefer the likes of Radio 1 where you know it was a studio first and they added the cameras later. More recently some 'props' and LEDs have been installed on the walls but it's not too overbearing. I like the fact you can see decks, equipment, cables and post-it notes stuck on computer screens. Looks more like a real workplace than a sterile box.
I guess Radio 2 is the same (they even get away with food in the studio). Starting to show it's age a bit, and looks a bit cramped when there are a few guests, but I suppose Wogan House has some space limitations.
