  • As well as asking the question “Which midnight would you most like to see on Sky News Active on New Year’s Eve?”, what other New Year Eve events would you like to see what might we see?

    I doubt if they will show the Middle East, unless Israel. The ME is Islamic and follows the Hegira not Gregorian calendar, so the New Year (as Christmas) is not celebrated in those countries.

    Well to get an idea of how many places they are likely to visit, you can use what the studio is capable of. For example, the Sky News studio is only capable of having two-way satellite links with six places at once, without using another studio as a hub. If they do frequent crosses to the same places then there are less links they can make because it takes time to establish comms. But then they will probably go to different places at set times, instead of when something ‘happens’ so you don’t have to sit on the same link. You can get it up, do a cross, take it down, do another one.

    Is that how Sky News Active works then? As I can remember on New Year’s Eve 2002, they had 4 cameras with live shots at the same time (11.00 – 11.15pm GMT)
