Seriously why do much speculation over a font? What boring conversation

It’s a typeface.

Are you aware it’s sad and a bit boring? This forum should be used to discuss current presentations and opinion not have pages of dribble guessing when a new font/ type face is going to be used.

The irony in this comment is massive. One fan of a hobby regarded as sad and a bit boring, accusing other fans of that self same hobby, of doing something sad, and a bit boring.

Fonts are a minor detail in presentation terms, but it's still part and parcel of the presentation, especially on something like a news channel.

If you're not interested in it, fine, you don't have to read it.

In a short amount of time, this typeface is going to represent the BBC. It is one of the biggest changes to the BBC's presentation in a long while. Of course we are going to speculate.

Maybe they do. But they are in the right place for their current hobby.

I really can't see how you can castigate people for participating in one of the most quintessentially TV Forum topics ever. I suspect it may be you who's in the wrong place, not those you are talking too.
