Sky News has just launched it's Vote 05 coverage with a rotating colour box on the side of the screen with the latest polls in a small box below it and to the left of the ticker. The only problem for me is that that box gets chopped off by the bottom of my television (but overall very impressive so far)

Are we likely to see a complete new graphics package after the weekend or just minor tweaks to the current and the addition of the animated slug bottom left?

Don't miss 'The Boulton Factor' tonight at 11pm.



Other things to look forward to;



Sky News 'Worm Polls' on key speeches.

Sky News 'Reality Check'

'Sky Across Britain' Flying to key seats.

'If I were PM' with top public figures - from Monday.



YouGov are conducting a poll as we speak for release tomorrow, for Sky News - the first after the election was called.



Great to hear the brilliant Julie Etch is anchoring the May05 evening's coverage. and the equally good Andrew Wilson is in the UK. Good to see Emma back here & I much prefer Greg's reporting in the field to his presenting. He may smile outside .



Andrew Wilson and Michelle Clifford will be with Tony Blair; Emma Hurd and Dominic Waghorn will report on Michael Howard?s campaign and Greg Milam and Lisa Holland will travel with Charles Kennedy.

Breaking News: All three leaders are to debate on Question Time on 28 April.



Unconfirmed as yet.







BBC scoops party leaders for live TV first



Dominic Timms

Tuesday April 5, 2005



Tony Blair, Michael Howard and Charles Kennedy have agreed to appear on live television for the first time in the same programme.



The leaders of the three major political parties will each be grilled in a special edition of Question Time on April 28.



The BBC said today it had tried to persuade them to do an American-style head-to-head debate but Labour refused.



However, the corporation is still heralding this as a major scoop - such was the party leaders' nervousness about taking part in live debates during the last election that the BBC was forced to broadcast three separate Question Time specials
