That does seem a possibility, particularly with Deejay's comment upthread. Perhaps doing some testing of the new look and didn't switch everything back to normal, so that's a hybrid of the new and old, which is why it looks crap?


Wishful thinking. It’s not a hybrid of new and old... they are the new lower thirds pan BBC News.

There are more elements of course. This showcases the basic main strap.

Not sure how much you can tell us but does white remain dominant in titles etc.?

I suppose it could be a worse colour choice. Remember the random purple straps during the cream/red era?

And they were an improvement on the original cream straps.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Red and black straps also appeared during the cream era - and they were HUGE on News 24
