Back to the presentation and specifically the box a comment made elsewhere today about brands usually being rundown in advance of a rebrand could be relevant here. It's difficult for the box to really establish itself when the old studio (and elements of the look in the other studios) are still on screen - plus probably doesn't help a graphical refresh wasn't associated with it too.
I've always hated it when revamps are done in stages, much preferring one clean break from one look to the next. Obviously the problems people have here with the box would still be somewhat evident if it was used 24/7 but I do think the contrast between the old and the new being so stark (literally in this case) makes it difficult for the box to shine in the way it's perhaps intended too.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television"
Footballer and London Lite gave kudos
