Yes Finn has hosted BS before a pic of her from a few months ago is in her thread.

Very nice to see Back Story devote so much time to Dan's reporting from the Ivory Coast on yesterday's show. Well done BS team (and Dan too).

The picture quality of Best of BackStory is again quite below normal. The graphics are a little blurry and the vision looks like it's been downloaded from youtube in parts. You can see just how blurry the graphics are when they have the flipper on at the bottom.

BS moving on from EPIC? The team posted a couple of pictures of rehearsals on a new set up. In response to a question on facebook about when it will be on air, they posted: "We're hearing early July so maybe August (har har)".

Testing the new set for Back|Story. We're really impressed, hope you are too

Another set location idea, what do you think?

That sounds rather exciting. The location in that first picture would probably be a nice backdrop. Domestic has used that location for Brooke Baldwin's teases as well as weekend morning interviews before Studio 7 was built. I do like watching all the screens behind Michael in the current "set", though.

The new set location looks quite nice. I can't wait to see it on air. Hat tip to Morph for the new Back Story promo:

... and I was just coming to this thread to say it's about time they change the set.:lol:

The current set looks very dated, like a newsroom from the 90s, too dark and old. Looking farward to the change.

I read your article first and though they were going to revamp the current set. Damnit so much for getting the hopes high for 2 seconds. ^^
Anyway, looking forward to the new change.

And that new promo is great. Way better than the "I love BS because.." one.

Does anyone else think Back Story will get new opening titles when they move to their new set? It's one of the few shows not to have had a revamp since it launched.

The new promo is good, but I've heard that music used in a few different news promos before.
Let's put the NEWS back into Cable NEWS Network.
less World Sport, more World Report.

I can't wait for the new set as well. I agree that the current setup is a little dark at times, and just looking at those pictures you can see that things will look much brighter.

According to the Back Story home page http://backstory.blogs.cnn.com/ the show airs at midnight CET, or 2200 GMT. But live airing time is 2300 CET (2100 GMT). Hopefully one of the responsible folks will see this message, and correct the info.

2200GMT is correct in the Northern Hemisphere winter. Guess they haven't updated it for Summer

BackStory airs at 2200 GMT/2300 CET in the winter and at 2200 BST/2300 CEST in the summer. I think CNN use GMT to refer to the time in London, rather than the actual GMT time.

Yeah the CNN TV schedule on their site is incorrect in the Asia Pacific region as well with Sydney out by an hour. I think it has to do with the fact that Hong Kong and Japan don't observe daylight savings.

There are many possible reasons, but I have always wondered why things like this seems to be so difficult for CNN. I remember, back in the 90-ies, they had problems with the airing time mentioned in the on-air promos as time changed by seasons. Now it's the web schedule and info on programme pages. If they think GMT = London time all year, they really have a problem :-) It should be the easiest thing in the world, for a global network, to inform the global audience about correct airing time. Only Asia web site can be trusted.

Perhaps it's just me, but it feels like the picture quality (especially the graphics) on the Best of Back Story replay is getting worse each weekend. I'm really surprised someone at CNNI hasn't noticed it. Surely it would be fixed if they knew about it?

@ Samson - I remember they said "early July". I guess it is anyone's guess though. I've been keeping an eye on the BS facebook page to see if they were giving any more info away.
