Some of you may have seen the initial version of this mock in the old Reith thread during the speculation of what BBC News was going to look like after Reith was applied.
This thread shows ideas on what the individual BBC News shows would like like if BBC Scotland's The Nine graphics were applied, I've gone for individual looks and colour palettes and removed BBC News branding outside of the NC, which I think manages to separate each show but keeps a hint of unity.
So far I have only done Breakfast, Business Live, Sportsday and The BBC News at One... which seeing as this is inspired by The Nine, I'm trialing with the title of The One.
The main changes since I posted some of the videos in the Reith thread is the addition of The One and switching the previous News Channel ticker with a flipper, of which I'll explain more with the Sportsday video.
Starting with Breakfast...
Alongside the video here's a few static pictures which includes the split screen and a possible Breaking graphics (which would then switch to the main text)
Next is Business Live...
While I haven't made a video for the accompanying The Six and The Ten, here's one photo with the Six logo
As this is a NC show, I've used a portion of the full programme to showcase the main NC graphics and how it works with the individual branding. Obviously the Sport yellow is used, but would change colour depending on the show being broadcast, with china red used on generic bulletins/The One/Six/Ten, the show logo also alternates with the BBC News logo every 45 seconds lasting for 15 before animating off.
The flipper I mentioned is also seen, I wanted to separate each section into colours (in a similar way to GMB), so Breaking maintains the old bold red, with Headlines keeping the darker red, Business is blue, Sport is yellow, and the Interactive (which is combined with Contact Us) uses the sort of duck egg blue used on the bullet point of the current NC graphics.
Some extra sections appear on the flipper, these are what I've chosen to call the 'slow news day' sections, these are sections which fill some space, but also provide some other information, the two I've added are for the BBC iPlayer and BBC Sounds, these highlight that the NC is live on the iPlayer, but also news shows of interest that are available to watch (in the video these are Click, The Travel Show and Newsbeat Documentaries)... the same applies for Sounds, highlighting news coverage on Radio 4, Radio 5 Live and the World Service, as well as podcasts and catch-up items of possible interest (Brexitcast and Jeremy Vine).
As a flipper can sometimes restrict the amount of words used to describe a story, I've opted to add a headline box, which would flip on with the accompanying information, but wouldn't then flip off until the (multiple) pages of info are finished.
I hope you like what I have so far and will post further videos once they are ready.
