It is the news for christs sake - not a new series of the X-Files - double decker studios and lifts and stair cases!

One little suggestion I have.. they spend a lot of energy creating the Year in Review stuff.. a main programme and smaller reviews.. sport and politics etc, i think..

the only thing missing, which I think we'd enjoy more is a Review of Sky News' Year, looking at how Sky covered the news in 200x - the amazing live footage, stunning packages from the good correspondents and reviews of how they broke the news at the time it was happening.. that sort of thing.

...the reviews are nice to watch, but you don't get a sense of what was going on at the time (from a sky POV) Also, I'd like to see their bloopers video (maybe a toned down one!?) becoming another small review type prog.. the funniest/silliest moments from 200x. ..it's another prog to add to the whole review collection.

Just like the others, we'd see these once and get a little bored of repeats.. but! At least it's something different for the fans of SN who (may) watch it a lot..




There is a prob, I presume with displaying graphics/straps from previous news events..? It would confuse people.. but still, gotta be a way round it.

Sky news has resorted to gimmicks over the years , news walls , helicopters etc, and they need some more to attract viewers , i cant see how they can they can be different from the others unless they perform tricks like this.

The other option is to make their news exceptionally better and that will cost more than a new set so thats their chosen path.

Instead of stairs, what about a slide !

I love your idea Kev. I would especially like to see more politics.

In the early morning I'd like to see a better report of the moring newspapers. For those of us who live abroad, it is very annoying that the slot is only given 30 seconds and then some presenters pick an obscure article in the middle of the paper to comment on leaving no time for the front pages. It is then irritating when they say to log on to their web site for a longer look. Some of us have to work for a living......!

I'd like to see a longer showbiz section also, and more frequently, like in the old days. I'd also like to see Neil Sean speak more slowly. I can't understand much of what he says.

I agree with Abby, a decent paper review would enhance the morning programme.

They should bring back Showbiz Weekly, Business Report, Your Call and World News, oh and Technofile.

Well there are 2 things that spring to mind.


I agree, a good start would be to bring back Simon McCoy and Natasha Kaplinsky. Then bring back the specialised programmes like "Your Call" to give a not only informative journalism but a sense of personal touch.
