L&K: Life After Death

Just when we'd all thought that L&K had been killed off, buried and forgotten about - a sort of weird feeling of deja-vu crops up during Children In Need on 16th November 2001 when the set makes a return from the grave as part of BBC Scotland's contribution.

Unlike the English regions that just broadcast their own content for around 10 minutes at a time as part of the regions insert, Scotland tended to opt out of the main broadcast for much longer segments which made using such a large set and audience more sensible.

Here, thanks to Jon Bufton, are some screen shots of the Scottish CIN and the old L&K set.



First you'll need a typical Children In Need audience and presenters.




And here's Heather Suttie - not a stranger to the old L&K set having taken over from Katy Hill for the show's summer decamp to Glasgow.




Here's the Home Area complete with Pudseys on the plasma screens. They've probably used that desk from old 'online' area to use in place of the beanbag type environment that L&K used.




The wide shot proves it's L&K less the branding. And it seems a little silly to have the Gunk Tank not use it.




Apparently it's Trevor from EastEnders in the tank.

It nearly didn't work... it had been lying around idle since mid September.




You can just see a big 'CIN' logo in the background, which is very nicely filling where the old 'L&K' one would have been.




The 'performance stage' makes a return too, largely unchanged - seems BBC Scotland managed to make great use of the old set.
