BBC Two 2018 Revamp


As you can see from the transponder bitrate allocation, there's no bandwidth related excuse not to put BBC Two NI HD on there... http://digitalbitrate.com/dtv.php?liste=1&live=69&lang=en&mux=10847

Isn't BBC Scotland HD going on there too? That would prevent Two NI going on the transponder

Fairly sure it's going to be on a different transponder.

I can't get excited about that slide. The backgrounds made the old slides. Yes it's laid out better, but the background is very non-descript and the logo on that image looks as awkward as it did in the box.

Also not really fair to talk about the inconsistency of the old look compared to a single slide in the new look. They haven't had time to be inconsistent yet but it doesn't mean it won't happen.

When the purpose of the slide is to convey important information to people who are in emotional distress, I don’t think that the background of the slide should be very descript - the contact information should be what the viewer pays attention to.


In regards to consistency, fair enough, I guess, although I doubt that they will be constantly changing and adapting their design every two months or so, which has been the case for the past year or so.

BBC TWO NI showed the new Action Line slide design last night.

This is leaps and bounds beyond the thoughtless, inconsistent cack we've seen from the channel for the past few years. It's great to see something that actually looks appealing.

Is everyone here recording the last few junctions of BBC2 tonight?

I've got them all today (both Network and NI) but my method is to simply directly record the iplayer streams. And that'll mean leaving the PC to record overnight with a cutoff at 3AM.

This usually works without a hitch but it has been known to fail on some occasions. So if that happens, I hope there's another copy available.

I’ve got you covered. Wink
