It's because they used clapped out old machines to record and playout of. Some VHS machines would probably do a better job...

i've also noticed that they frequently play out the wrong titles nowadays (e.g 'Morning Report' was played at something like 3pm the other week). What's that about?



Are they actually moving to Sky News' old studio when the current incumbents move out or is that just mere conjecture, as I suspect? If they do - it can't be too soon!

Making a guess, Throught The Night is recorded. Its not live, so Im guessing that it may be the reason the footage looks weird.



They play the same stuff again and again, also if a presenter says something to his co presenter, at about 12.15, fast forward to 1.15 and its repeated.

Yes, 0000-0600 on weekdays is the previous night's 2300-0000 hour and 0000-0700 on weekends. The picture quality shouldn't be S***, but it is because the machines are S***.
