Despite its very restricted studio space, the World Service TV set had to appear large to portray importance and influence. Low tech. 'virtual' space was achieved by the use of mirrors and carefully calculated geometry. Mirror images included reverse-scan monitors to reinforce the illusion of depth.

The set was used also for seven other programmes, all to appear different and with minimal resetting time; sports, regional programmes, business news, religious programmes, weather etc.
"Shaun came up with a design which contains its own lighting and uses mirrors to create an illusion of space. This was a bold and original attempt to combat the limitations imposed by a small studio.

He also tailored his use of materials, suppliers, and contractors, to accommodate heavy financial constraints. The result was an adventurous set which makes the optimum use of the available space, containing original elements now clearly associated with World Service TV.

We very much value the contribution which Shaun has made to this service, and look forward to being able to call on his ingenuity again in the future."
