Strange how they moved to new facilities and then ended up with a news studio that seems smaller than the one they had before and poorly laid out sets for other shows that share that small space with plenty of little niggles that make it look so amateurish and basic than what it should.
I agree, the presentation is much nicer than we've ever had but it isn't perfect and the mash up is a bit grating at this point. I hope it isn't long before the UTV name is ditched and they just call it ITV (or ITV NI when relevant). It's already that in all but name anyway.
Havelock House was big, many floors. and two main studios, 2,500 Sq Ft and 1,600 Sq Ft each. Now they are in City Quays, they are restricted to just one floor, and with limited studio space, I bet they have around 1,800 Sq Ft space in total, and because they are just on a floor in an office building, the studio is not a dedicated built studio, but rather converted office space. That has made the difference.
