Latest post in TV Home - Automated recordings of BBC idents

Interesting, thanks both. That's prompted me to have a very quick check of yesterday's junctions from the moment the flag fires:

2pm - 8s to ident, 21s to sponsor, 36s to programme
3pm - 7s to ident, 20s to sponsor, 35s to programme
5pm - 3s to ident, 20s to sponsor, 35s to to programme
6pm - 15s to menu, 35s to ident (which in reality is probably the programme)
7pm - 7s to ident, 20s to sponsor, 35s to programme
8pm - 6s to ident, 21s to sponsor, 36s to programme
9pm - 6s to ident, 21s to sponsor, 36s to programme
10pm - 23s to ident, 35s programme
10.45pm - 19s to ident, 35s to programme
11.40pm - 13s to ident, 35s to programme
3am - 23s to ident, 36s to programme
3.50am - 21s to ident, 36s to programme

So there is logic there, it's -35secs from the programme. Just not quite a neat as the Beeb. That also explains why some of the idents are clipped if the ident + sponsor length is over that duration.

TV Forum: New for (the middle of) 2020

Welcome to a new look! Hope you like it, you'll find everything pretty much in the same place but I think it's a bit fresher. It's also the first time every page has been given a makeover at the same time. A few main bits to note...

  • Private messages have been unshackled after almost 20 years of being in a tiny popup. Messages are also threaded like a topic, rather than the SMS-of-the-'90s vibe we've had until now.
  • As well as the overall vote, Gallery designs are now broken down by individual rating.
  • Dark mode! You can turn it on via your User settings and either have it on all the time, just at night or based on whatever your system settings are. There may be some corners of the site I've forgotten to style, please let me know.
  • Starting today, new members will not immediately have access to Request topics.
    *
    It's a 2-step process, with permission to then be able to post later on. Hopefully this will stop people using this site purely for requests and encourage some more meaningful posts elsewhere.
  • Search: it now works! almost works Sad - exact phrases aren't currently being matched.

I'm sure there will be some bugs in places, I've had a snagging list arms length for a while so at some point I needed to just get it live.
