Darragh McManus: It's not…really…THAT much different
It’s not…really…THAT much different. Is it? Be honest now.
The new look for Six-One News – RTE’s flagship news show – debuted this evening. And besides definitively altered opening credits (we’ll come back to those), this viewer for one had to squint hard to make out many changes.
The studio looks fresh – sort of – but also pretty much the same as every other news studio on the planet for the past 20 years. They all seem bathed in that mid-blue glow, as though you’re watching the news on a telly that’s been sat inside an aquarium tank.
