News at Seven back to normal tonight,with Anna Jones standing up rather than at the desk as has been the case the last week.



Also noticed that "News At Seven" now has its own logo,it was displayed on the desk,a small but positive move i feel.

'News at Seven' is presented from the desk. it comes from the elbow on Mondays because Jeff Randall is using the desk.



EDIT: Some great studio pans tonight, jib op working overtime.

Today's Guardian has an interesting article on Sky News, written by Andrew Neil. It presents a very worrying picture of the future of the channel, especially its reduced availability in the future and, as a result, potentially much lower viewing figures. There is even a suggestion that its long-term viability could be at risk.



This is sad for those of us who are long-term regular Sky News viewers. It's clearly still the only news channel worth watching, but it used to be so much better. I can't be the only person who cannot watch the likes of Kay Burley and Andrew Wilson, so now avoid the channel at those times. Channel 4 News has begun to reassert its appeal for me, and there are signs that News at Ten will revive with Trevor MacDonald and Julie Etchingham. Sky News does seem to be slipping!



Could the powers-that-be at Sky be convinced about the following points.



1. It is the best news channel and has the country's No 1 experts in certain fields, such as Adam Boulton, Tim Marshall and Martin Brunt.

2. Some recent changes have been ill-advised and should be ditched. Tabloid-type frontmen (or women) such as Kay Burley and Andrew Wilson are a turn-off. Bring back the much-underused Martin Stanford, Paula Middlehurst, Allan King, Martin Popplewell, etc.

3. Avoid losing Sky News from Freeview, Virgin, etc. In recent years the population has been saying " I turned on Sky News to see whether.....had happened". It would be a shame if that universal familiarity with the brand became eroded.



Is there any chance of these things happening?

I agree with that, seeing the same face all day is to much, regardless of who it is

In a press release today, the BBC say "BBC News 24 increased its lead over Sky News and now has over 50% more viewers than its rival." The Figures are based on the latest data, covering the period from January to November 2007.





Jeff Randall is done for the Christmas Period, A special Technofile is on tonight. Next week there's a Madeleine McCann special.

I wonder if Mark White, Matt Smith, Martin Brunt, Adam Boulton and the rest of the Male Staff at Sky will start turning up to work in Jeans and no tie, after all Steve Hargraves is allowed to.
