When the slight graphics refresh finally comes, what show are they most likely to debut on?


There have also been package refreshes launch at 9 or 10pm before now on election nights in the past. Sure someone else can confirm?...

Accurate. The refresh 2015 occurred on a Thursday, 9pm as did the relaunch in 2010. They switched to the new standard package and away from the election one for Live at Five in 2010. The revamps in the years before: 2005, 7, 8 and 9 started with the first programme of the day, whereas the refresh in April 2008 also appeared to have happened on a Thursday.

The 2005 music package was definitely a lot nicer (and more varied) - the 2 different music beds made a difference.

The 2005 package was the reason I started watching this channel.


Watching a news channel because of headline music is a particularly odd reason to be honest. 🤷‍♂️

No. I was still a young boy at that time and I couldn't speak English at all as I am not native. So I was only able to watch this channel on holiday in Spain and it immediately attracted my attention due to the dramatic and nice theme and also the great-looking studio with the big glowing globe beside the stairs etc. The useful side effect of this splendid set up was that I stayed tuned and started to learn English... 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️
