Gosh, there's no pleasing you is there.




Indeed. Apart from the iconic colour scheme I don't see anything that's the same as BBC's current setup. A huge state of the art multi-set complex is a huge step up from a rectangle with a desk in the middle, hardly "same same"...

well, you do know me so well.... whoever you are.

hasn't BBC World always had the big red set, the oval desk with the glass panels around it?
Just saying it's not a revolutionary change, more an upgrade

I'm not sure what's more of an understatement, "upgrade" or "oval table with glass panels around it"

If only Seven's new set is half as good as this one (I wish) :covereyes:

I'm guessing the new set will be accompanied by a new graphics package?

That is an incredible set! It's a pity we don't get anything like that in Australia.


To compare apples-with-apples though we should be comparing our breakfast shows and current affairs shows sets because these programs are national. We don't have the same types of national, centralised programming in Australia as they have in the UK, US and elsewhere. Where we do (e.g. breakfast and current affairs programming) I would argue that the sets are at least commensurate while not being on quite the same scale. If one of the Australian networks were to successfully roll out, say, a national nightly news service then I think these types of sets would start to make an appearance. At the moment our state-based news sets are really just like those used for local news in some of the smaller markets in the US.

In keeping with the BBC's efforts to become less 'London-centric', BBC Breakfast has today begun broadcasting from its new home in Manchester, Northern England.

Built into converted office space and shared with regional news programming, the studio is certainly a downsize from their previous one:

Still not a bad set for Breakfast. Very tidy and polished and it still feels spacious.

Agreed. It's easy to forget that they are still a public broadcaster, and are dealing with a freeze on their funding.

Miles better than the set of our 'Breakfast', at any rate.

Did Sian Williams leave because of the program being moved north to Manchester?

What other programs are being moved about and what else is happening?

Yes, she apparently has a very London-centric lifestyle and didn't want to give that up. She'll be back on the show while it is in Olympics mode, but then she will move on to anchoring BBC One bulletins as well as hosting a show on BBC Radio.

The BBC's entire sports department has also moved up to Manchester, with all their sports news bulletins and other programmes coming from new facilities there. CBBC, Their children's department, several radio stations and BBC Three will also be located there.

I believe all remaining programmes will stay in London, but rather than being scattered around the city they will be consolidated into new London headquarters currently nearing completion, with BBC World News scheduled to be broadcasting from new studios there before the Olympics begins. Their national programmes will follow afterwards.

The World producers will move in before but wont broadcast from there until September.
Sian has already presented many BBC National bulletins on BBC One as it was the only way to keep her at the BBC, she has taken over as main stand in presenter on the One, Six and Ten

It's happening! The new Studio C (thought to be the primary base of BBC World News) is nearing completion, as seen in this render v reality picture from TVForum's mdtauk:

This was, in my opinion, the least impressive of their set designs yet it's been very faithfully executed. Looking forward to seeing how the others turn out.

A new local set for the Midlands region:



Nothing particularly impressive about it by international standards, but it serves to illustrate how much better the BBC does on small budget sets than Australian networks. The line of frameless plasmas is a very creative solution.

Been watching quite a bit of the BBC local 24 news channel lately and the sports centre they have is really probably the stand out feature from there transition to new sets and presentation across the country.

It is distinctively different to what we have been use to on the BBC, meaning all the red.
