The decline of BBC News online

The different favicon is where the application (whatever drives /schedules) is telling the browser to use a specific icon (in this case https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/images/ic/208x208/p01tqv8z.png or a variant at another size). As that icon has a reflection of the blocks beneath it, I'd guess it is certainly not new.

Other BBC sites are not doing this so are just using the default /favicon.ico favicon.

You'll notice sites like iPlayer have a custom icon (a pink i) and Sounds has an orange S. I guess it's up to product teams to choose to add these in though they are certainly better than a tiny set of BBC blocks.

BBC World/BBC News - Technical Issues Again??

Must say it was certainly the right choice to do the ten from Milllbank.

Even if systems had been fully fixed in time, it's just not the programme you want to go wrong - imagine the papers if it did.
