At the risk of living up to your prediction of 'working studio etc etc' I'm afraid that is the case. Having said that, whoever said that we never go in the MOTD studio on a Sunday was not correct. Some Sunday's the studio is free...More

Very interesting tour. Fascinating to see how a small room with a table can be made to look so big on TV. Fun getting chance to be a news reader or weather girl. Amazing to see all the equipment in Match of the Day studio.
