Breakfast's new look

The backing is warmer...
At the start of May, Breakfast moved to a new studio with a new look and two enormous video walls made up of several screens.

Since then, we've been making a few minor changes.

But as of today, we've really warmed things up.

Breakfast's Editor David Kermode explains:

We've been in our new home for a month now, so we've had time to settle in and listen to what our viewers think of our new look.

The general view appeared to be that, while our blue skies and cloud were light and bright, they looked a bit cold.

So, based on what Breakfast's loyal viewers told us, we've decided to warm it all up a bit, with some of the oranges and reds that we use in our opening 'titles', taken from images of sunrises around the UK.

What you told Breakfast
I like the new design of the set. It's reminiscent of early Picasso or George Braque perhaps! The only thing I'd quibble with is the colours used on the set: they clash with the ubiquitous pink that seems to be an unofficial BBC uniform.

We've also made the design a bit more detailed, to cover some of the joins between our state-of-the-art screens.

Some of you said the joins - some called them 'cracks' - were irritating, so we've tried to deal with them.

Initially feedback seems really positive - and our viewing figures continue to rise, suggesting that we're hopefully getting it right.
