No.


To be fair though, I cannot wait for the day that someone (hopefully Superunion) gives BBC One a fresh and stylish new look. Something they desperately need...

Then you'd be holding your breath for another year. Obviously, BBC One would rebrand around 2020, but if you're expecting it in October or some point in the summer, you'd be sorely mistaken.


That's what people were saying this time last year about BBC2. You never know.

Yeah, how much notice did we have for BBC2's rebrand? It was sprung on us out of nowhere.

Less than two days notice, so on that logic BBC One is rebranding on Tuesday. Very Happy
Stay Local. Stay Safe. Stay Alive.

Imagine how painfully boring the Oneness montage will be when it finally does come to an end...

The BBC One idents have been shaping up to form Oneness for the last two decades. It all started with Lorraine Heggessey becoming controller of the BBC, bringing with her a hatred for the Balloon idents.

2000 - New 'Lifestyle' idents were created to include people performing everyday activities - with the balloon condemned to the background.

2002 - Rhythm & Movement idents were created, making people once again the main focus. And as the globe was no more, the main connection was people once again performing an everyday activity - dancing.

2006 - The Circle idents are bought into fruition. The circle aspect was supposedly meant as a symbolism of unity, with people and other animals and objects made to form the circle.

2017 - The Oneness campaign is conceived, again symbolising unity by having people pose for a photo whilst performing everyday activities. (Basically Oneness is a concoction of everything terrible about the idents of the last 20 years)

Dunno about everyone else, but I’m having trouble fitting in my daily Capoeira these days.

To be fair though, I do have some slight trouble bungee jumping from my hot air balloon.

I’m guessing it’s now compulsory for Billie Eilish songs to be used on all trailers now.

EastEnders (& Emmerdale), Killing Eve, now a show about plastics...

Tried falling from a line of ribbon, fell on the wooden floor.
