Just watched the titles back and they don't make that much sense with the presenters edited out. Hopefully somebody sees some sense and drops them. There are some dreadfully long sections focusing on dull things like studio lights and a revolving door.

Would have been far better to just use a sting with that final shot of the studio exterior.

The issue is that they have totally no narrative at all. The main titles follow Phil and Holly on their journey to a coffee shop then the studio. This is just a compilation of clips which makes it feel very cheap. I think the time-lapse shots of the studio are very cheap and would be better placed on YouTube rather than a TV show.

The shots like Phil and Holly edited out like the taxi have no motion anymore making them seem lifeless and lacking energy. It just needs a few people wandering around in the background. I think some generic titles were needed but I'm sure they could have done a better job of it than this. I really have to question why they didn't film a generic sequence on the shoot of the titles back in 2015

Yes, these could just have been done much better, even if some of the random clips were replaced with stock footage of Eamonn and Ruth from the show. Indeed I suspect if we go back far enough in this thread I'm sure somebody attempted a version of the titles without the references to Phil and Holly which were better executed.

It does also seem they might intend to use these moving forward as otherwise I'd have thought they'd have made them more summer focused.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?
