Another update for you. I've taken last Friday's BBC News at 9 to give you an idea of what the news channel might look like - titles, stings and astons.
Here's how they animate. You'll notice that the TOTH
is shorter and focuses on the pictures - opening straight into the top story and no gfx.
9, 1, 5, 6 and 10 branded bulletins would also now have a short closing sting.
Same again with the 6, titles and stings will always be different thanks to the headlines in the cats cradle and the clocks.
The principle behind the astons is to do away with 4:3 safe areas for items that don't hinder understanding the story. For example, the BBC News logo is outside the safe area, as is the 'programme logo' on the right (nothing would fill this space for generic bulletins). The area is also used for 'Breaking News', 'Business news' etc.
Thanks to doing away with the safe areas, all possible graphics can fit in a maximum of four lines at the bottom.
Some have discussed in other threads that Reith looks odd next to a Gill BBC logo - this design means it will always be stacked and will look less awkward.
I've also provided a few examples of how the astons would translate to other services.
BBC World News - GMT
BBC One - News at 6
And here's how they animate.
