Right, first a disclaimer: I do not live in the UK. Therefore, I do not get News 24, so this might be on air also.

But, if you watch http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsa/n5ctrl/tvseq/n24.ram, you'll see some different bumpers between stories, and if you watch long enough, the News Headlines will cycle back and you'll see some simple animation whose format looks like a take on the regional news revamps from last year.

Don't be fooled -- it's not a new look. The News Online headline sequence is prepared and executed by BBC News Interactive, which is separate from the regular BBC TV News output. It is often produced in front of a CSO background and the separation between the two is why you rarely see any of the first rate BBC News presenters reading.

The old NO headline sequence used to begin the loop with a 00'05" News 24 countdown and custom "24" bumpers. The new look has been designed to "break away" from the News 24 brand and use it's own, distinguishing look.

One thing to note: the streams are often far from perfect -- poor timings, bad (or no sound), and poor image quality. Oh well, just my observation! Rolling Eyes

Ah, that makes sense. And, to tell you the truth, I'm a little relieved because you'd hope that BBC News could come up with better (i.e., not mediocre) graphics for its national news.

Do you think they'll carry the clips of people theme into new titles, if there are to be any? Actually this question remains quite unanswered: what, exactly, is the extent of this change?

We know for certain that the presenters change, but do the sets, titles, format, music, graphics, etc.? Maybe an insider could be kind enough to give us a hint?

Another topic on this same subject exists on this part of the forum, but all I can say is that changes will be made. Because the changes and launch aren't public knowledge yet, I can't reveal anything. Sorry. Confused

The BBCi graphics that you're talking about were introduced when the DSat News Interactive went up to 7 screens from 5. The online feed is the News Headlines screen, which goes alongside sport, weather, entertainment from Liquid News, On This Day and Live Plus.

I wouldn't expect it to have anything to do with any changes to the national news.

Why can't you give us a bit more Sparky?

When you say the launch isn't public yet, I presume you don't mean the changes to be made on the 20th Jan as this launch is public as they're trailing it now.

So can you just confirm whether there are to be changes, a rough timescale and which outlets it'll effect.

Please!

I don't think Sparky wants to dangle his carrot! Smile


I'm not interested in his carrot! I just want to know what BBC News are up to! It's hardly bloody official secrets act stuff!
