The colours do look very vibrant - clearly is a touched-up still with some animations added. But as others have said, better than that fake empty corridor.


Has anyone reported this to Operation Yewtree?

The one/two headed shots are very nice, with the rippling water in the background; much better than a few flickering fake monitors, or fake birds flying past.

However, the wider shot doesn't look right as it's not a panoramic view that connects together across the screens.

Definitely an improvement from what was shown before, but I hope they change the views to be more realistic, with less 'stylised' colours.

GMB's view of the Thames looks more professional, but then again, they have a proper studio.

I think perhaps it would have more effect if they had changed the 'title sequence', music, Reithed the graphics/logo and background screens all at the same time.

This 'drip, drip' effect is somewhat pointless. Either change a programme's on screen presence or don't bother at all.

BBC Breakfast is long overdue for a revamp, but everything just seems like a whimpering small change that only us pres geeks would notice. To the general public, nothing has changed for nearly a decade.

I'm going to play devil's advocate here because goodness knows how often I've been frustrated by how "static" the visual appearance of Breakfast has been over the last decade (and more), but I imagine they have a philosophy of "don't fix what isn't broken". It still gets a good chunk of the morning audience and I imagine a good proportion of that audience couldn't care less about whether the titles / backdrop / set changes, or certainly aren't as fussed about the visual appearance of the show, as long as they get their news, local news and weather at the times that Breakfast adheres to.
