Newsnight

Now, almost 25 minutes later, a “proper” clip-up of the top stories on the front pages is now being used on the NC. Much like The Papers used to do.

BBC News can do it properly, so why the mess on Newsnight?

I do also think that Newsnight’s lighting changes are a little overdone, as it washes out the faces of the pundits/presenter a little bit much. I’m sure they could find a compromise between the “dead if night pitch blackness” era and this almost Victoria Derbyshire programme style, bright colours look. Why not keep the style but turn it down slightly?

Newsnight have relocated the (second hand) sofa to in front of the window in 54D, so I wonder if BBC Persian are also using it during the day since it has a neutral colour.

The area of the studio housing the desk didn't make an appearance on Monday evening.

Oh no! The old sofa is back at the window tonight. Confused

I think tonight's Newsnight is the first which was really flagging towards the end in terms of content/guests since the new format. The gambling story did not deserve the full 30 minutes, and Victoria was struggling to not ask questions which would elicit the same points. The Assange story would have been a good 10 minute item to switch away from the tawdry politics.

I know it was often the opposite a couple of years ago when it felt like guests could barely get a hearing due to panel discussions being extremely time limited. Hope it isn't a sign of things to come considering the funding situation.

My eyes are twitching more at the mismatched screens to the left and the right Big Grin

The coffee table looks the same, so I guess it's the design, but not a very good one.

I noticed tonight that Newsnight have changed their WhatsApp number to a normal UK one on their slug, without the international prefix. They alternate it with their URL, Twitter/X hashtag, email address and a push for iPlayer. I'm not sure when they made the change, but probably on Monday.

Together with the 'daytime chat show lighting' and desktop/coffee table designed by primary school children, it's all quite disconcerting. This isn't an entertainment or children's TV programme, so why make it appear so?

Sorry to double post, but this very odd graphic appeared also during Newsnight.

After a little research it appears AFP is a French news agency, so not sure why the BBC are taking a feed from them about some tittle-tattle in the Oval Office with very poor PQ. Dodgy

Our techy brethren may know.
