It's our second day broadcasting live from the London studio and it's been very exciting so far.
The studio is smaller, so I can't take those long strides when I walk around from camera to camera, but overall, the amazing technical crew here has managed to replicate the I-Desk feel on camera with about a third of the space we have an Atlanta.
Onto what we have planned for the show today.
We will kick things off with the maiden flight of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Several times delayed, at one point an embarrassment for the American planemaker, today is a crucial PR move for the Seattle-based company.
It needs to show the world that its jumbo aircraft will be a big seller and a big revenue maker. We will cover the maiden flight live.
Also today, the announced British Airways Christmas period strike. If you are currently holding a BA ticket or plan to fly through London after December 22nd, then you'll want to tune in.
Plus, the latest on violence in Pakistan with more deadly bombings today. We also have an interview with the head of U.S. Central Command, General David Petraeus. CNN correspondent Arwa Damon asked Petraeus about the challenges in Afghanistan and Pakistan in America's new regional strategy and we'll feature a portion of her interview.
We are also live in Copenhagen where delegates are trying to come to an agreement that will allow world leaders to unveil a UN pact to fight climate change.
And, on a lighter note, we have the list of nominees for next year's Golden Globes. George Clooney's "Up In The Air" is one of the most nominated movies. We are live in Los Angeles with a report.
Plus all the rest of the day's developing news stories, as always.
