So here's my new GMB Mock. Almost everything is 4:3 safe (bar the 'LIVE' bug). The clock has been ditched for a more simplistic design, it does however, appear with the date in the ticker at the start and in the middle of the news stories. Design inspiration came from Good Morning America. This is a completely new design and in my view, one that could work on a re-vamped GMB (Not that GMB should be re-vamped, it's just an idea). Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

*The video is available in HD, it improves the quality a lot. YouTube won't set it as default though.

Nice, but the problem is, people do make use of the permanent on screen clock in the morning. I know most people have clocks on their phones, and you might say don't or shouldn't need an on screen clock, but you only need to look at how peeved people get on Twitter (via https://twitter.com/goodmornmorons for example) to see that some do rely on it - even without checking, as is clearly the case with all these apparently unwitting viewers of ITV+1.

Thanks. The clock appears within the ticker every 30 seconds or so, so it's not gone, just moved essentially. I've seen that Twitter account before, it's not exactly hilarious. I might bring it back, but I struggle to see where it might go.

While your work is much improved, there is still no way any UK breakfast news programme would go clockless - even if it does appear every now and again in the ticker. On top of the ITV+1 clock issues, there was also outroar when BBC moved the breakfast clock outside of the 4:3 safe area a few years back.

On the ticker front - you need more spacing between stories - it's very difficult to scan where one story starts and another begins.
It's spelt AERIAL!
