I didn't click that it was travel information which was closing - that doesn't seem a very PSB move though it is probably just about catered for commercially.

Also don't know if it is down to cuts or just an assumption on how people view videos but annoying now how almost all video reports on the website and connected TV are basically video with text annotations rather than an actual report.

With connected TV you used to be pretty much able to build your own news bulletin from the content available but now it's basically making your own Buzzfeed.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

The new Global titles are a definite downgrade.


Yes I was thinking that myself whilst editing the clip, the new music certainly lacks depth and it looks too similar in title graphics to Impact, it does make you wonder if they just reskinned that to create the new Global titles.

It is almost as if something so newsworthy was happening yesterday that it justified ITV News using their senior presenter (who just happened to be on location) to present the weekend bulletins.

I suspect if tonights early bulletin was in the more regular 6.45pm slot Tom might front that to, but it is at 5.15pm.

To be fair politically Trump is probably one of the few areas I'd disagree with him on. More problematic for his employment could be Leveson 2. If despite the best efforts of the press it goes ahead as it should he is likely to be implicated and if it becomes the headline news it should be that may require at least a suspension from the show.

Reminds me of the promo they ran about a year ago with the tagline "There's more BBC than you think", where the blocks spin around showing different services the BBC provides. This effort is so much better though.

The tagline 'for all of us' sounds like a nod to 'You make what it is' with the BBC's brand refresh in 1997. Curious though.

Yeah I really like the tagline. The "you're going to reap just what you sow" line and the little 'Start or Stop' button from Perfect Day also works in a similar way.

I like how BBC Travel and iWonder features in that... now canceled.

So when did the daytime announcements stop again?


The last recordings I have from daytime are January 9th - and there were announcements over end credits and idents. There were references to the day (Monday). And one other quote: "UTV's favourite farming show returns for a new series tomorrow night" - suggesting that the announcements weren't generic but specific to that date. No idea what's been happening on weekdays since then but there have been no announcements during daytime this weekend. And interestingly, freelancer Aidan Browne was in reading the news last night as well as covering the continuity announcements during the evening.

I may be remembering this incorrectly, but wasn't it in the wake of the Paris attacks? I've a feeling that Mark Austin did the Saturday late bulletin and Tom Bradby did the Sunday late.


Ah maybe you're right. I know Tom's definitely done a weekend bulletin, perhaps not a Saturday.

He never done an evening though. Duncan Gollestani just said Ragh Omaar is presenting tonight.

I would think britains got talent would have been the biggest thing he's done in the uk. But of course that was in a panelist capacity and did not revolve around him. Personally I like him, or rather I like his modus operandi, whether you agree with his opinions is another matter of course but I sense he tells it as it is, or at least how he thinks it is. Refreshing in that sense.
