The new 'Eye On Ireland' report is quite empresive and detailed. also noticed there was no add break at the end of the hour just went straight to the sky report. they didn't show the plazma screen at all tonight. I assume they are re-doing that aswell now. think the opening is a bit stupid for sni showing the london studio but i suppose they couldn't really change it just for one programme. over all well done to sni!

Strange, we've been getting UK commercials since 20:30....



Like the new SNI. Obviously not as major a change as for news centre but it fits in well with overall look. Fake news wall maintains continuity. Lets see if they have more of the studio to reveal.

Wasn't there some rumours a few months back about SNI expanding (in terms of studio space)? From what I can see that hasn't happened as of yet.

who know maybe it was at the other side of the studio which is being re-done at the moment.

'Eye on Ireland' - great idea - inspired from 'Eye on America' from CBS News.



Any captions of SNI opening sequence? I am most impressed by London's offerings.

You all know my previous critiques about SNI, but I have to say I like their new style.



The 6:30 schedule is a much better time slot than the 7pm as previous to now.



I'm still sceptic as to why they don't have more news bulletins though.

OMG Mr. Byrne I'm amazed. ah no its getting better and hopefully they'll extend their shows. i wonder if the 6.30 slot effected tv3 news in anyway? the new newsdeak for grainne looks good and the fake newswall is clever. can't wait to see the whole studio re-done. grainne did say in the sunday independant last week that she hates putting the minister under pressure for a minute and a half and would like longer bulitens.

Even better was seeing Grainne in a short skirt not to many glimpses though. bit annoyed taht sni has gone from the main site and there is no Grainne on the list to get pics especially when she shows her legs. But not complaining, she should show her legs more often, the shorter the skirt the better.

taught the reporting tonight was excellent. good to see that they didn't have to take an add break at the end or even during the programme itself.
