To replace Gill Sans in print and on screen (May 2017)

I seem to recall one of the more recent updates/tweaks to Breakfast also took place on a Tuesday.


That's right, the first programme from Salford was on a Tuesday, as the Monday was a Bank Holiday.

And last year when they changed the TOTH ????
My contribution is small but you are welcome.

Yay! Reith is used on the weather! I know it's old news at this point but still

Could someone explain to me why World News Today uses the font used in the 2008 package in its titles? At least it appears to be the old font to me. I can usually notice a font difference but not if it’s a different style in the family.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Do you think newsreaders will refer to the upcoming new-look news/refresh on Sunday evening for Monday? Or is it not that important saying goodbye to a font? Will we be seeing some 90 second countdowns over this weekend? I suppose these kind of things only matter to us on here.

They will play out an obit package every hour for the old look.

You might get the occasional “Welcome to a new look Look North” or something. I dare say it’ll all be documented here 😊

World News Today was the first to be rebranded, I was referring to BBC World which saw simulcasts rebranded in Jan 2013
