Great to see the old theme back, but did it make anyone think that the old theme doesn't really match how the show looks now? Probably because we sorta got used to the 'sha la la la la' theme. Best thing to do is to create a new title sequence, with the old theme.
Part of me thinks that'll probably happen at some point. It's interesting to note the subtle changes they've made recently - then BAM... this one - the theme revertion - comes out of nowhere:
- We've had the break bumpers changed from cutting to the title card to the logo animating on screen into/out of the break
- The DOG
moved to a lower position
- The show promo on This Morning slightly different: rather than a whole panel shot when each panel member teases the topic, it's an individual shot - then the whole panel
- Different camera shots for the walk-on. Normally the camera moves down the 'red carpet' towards the entrance - but now, they're using the jib camera more in the walk on.
Then, the use of these camera shots during the walk-on a few weeks ago:
- Now, the return of the Series 16-18 theme tune - a major change.
Maybe I'm reading into these changes too much, but one suspects there'll probably be more changes on the horizon. A new look when the show moves to TVC: a graphical and set overhaul...
Interesting times ahead, if I'm honest.
