ITV 2019 idents and presentation - ITV Creates



Are they introducing new ITV Creates idents this year therefore? I thought we had concluded they were repeating all of them from last year but in a different order. Having already reshown 2 idents from last year, launching a randomly new ident this week seems a bit strange? Was this left over from last year or a reject ident from 2019? Or will all new 2020 idents follow from this week onwards?

The New ITV & BBC Weather Thread

Didn't the old graphics simply have a gradient fade in the same spot so that the cut-off was less noticeable?

The cloud overlay does appear in full with the MeteroGroup graphics when doing the forecast for something like more than 48 hours in the future, so it could just be a case that the more-accurate weather modelling stops at that cut-off point when doing the coming day etc, and there's less of an effort to cover it up than before? I agree that it doesn't look fantastic, although on the whole the graphics have certainly grown on me since their launch.


The old graphics had no cloud overlay - merely darker shading on the map - similar to ITV now - which made it much easier to see what was going on and where the cloud actually was. Now, it is extremely difficult to judge cloud from snow from fog from ice/frost. I thought by now that the BBC would have been removing elements from their map such as the cloud overlay to make it more understandable, rather than adding to them by sticking "Liverpool" on the map.

I agree, the vertical line cut off of the cloud overlay by the weather presenter does look poor.

The New ITV & BBC Weather Thread

BBC Weather now has "Liverpool" labelled on their National map - just in case we didn't know where it was. This is new since the start of 2020. This means that Northern Ireland is now mostly covered by "Belfast", as is most of Wales by "Birmingham". How this improves the clarity of the weather presentation, is questionable

I bet they didn't mention it used to be a Grampian production.


I remember this!!! It was intriguing as it was so unusual to see the Grampian logo at the end of a broadcast, probably one of the only programmes all year to be produced by Grampian for the ITV network. (I'm probably wrong but please do not criticise). I wonder why Grampian produced the show from London and not a local company such as Carlton?

WHAT??!! You're saying these are fake?? Unbelievable!! I was gearing myself up for these, esp the 1980 coloured logo... Crying or Very sad


Yes, they are fake because:

1. They are not official
2. Is break bumper footage on a tablet that has Furbies behind it fit for telly?

They are mocks.


Thanks for this.

ITV 2019 idents and presentation - ITV Creates

It's kind of lazy if you ask me.


I wouldn't say it's lazy. I'd call Channel 4 lazy for rerunning the same 4 Block Man idents continually for the past 4 years or so. It'll be nice to see them again randomly!

They've been on air for 26 months. Hardly four years...


Still lazy though.

Doesn't that say something when it seems like they've been on air for almost half a decade when it is actually just over a couple of years? Even jazzing the music up would help or creating a few new ones.
Lazy.

National Television Awards

This was announced a while ago.

On a presentation note, I always liked watching the NTA's in the 1st 4-5 years where they would cycle between the terrestrial channels logos of the time before showing the clips of the programmes. I suppose they gave that up as there are too many channels & streaming services to consider. Interesting that I think most of the shortlist is still made up of programmes on the main 5 channels. Which is how I'd like it to remain.

ITV 2019 idents and presentation - ITV Creates

Why are some of the view that there will be new idents? Has there been any confirmation of this?

Seems to me they are going to rerun last year's ITV Creates in a different / random order.

It's kind of lazy if you ask me.

Well, if we don't get Project 104, I suppose we have to resort to these...

ITV 2019 idents and presentation - ITV Creates

The hell? Two of those seem to be based on the early 80s logo - the one used on Channel 4's ITV Schools pres. And another one is a serif font.

And another one was lazy enough to just use breakbumper footage on a tablet for the logo.


It's still varied and different to other channels at the moment. It doesn't matter that we will be seeing the 1980's ITV logo again, if that is what it is meant to represent. Some regions did not really see a lot of it in the 1980's anyway due to the regional idents/logos taking centre stage. It was probably seen more on Channel 4 in between junctions and on ITV Schools on Channel 4. It'll be great to see it back again!!


Looking forward to seeing these refreshed, rejuvenated idents on Monday. Interesting ITV have gone with shaky footage akin to the recent Martin Parr inspired popular BBC1 idents.

BBC One Christmas 2019

You know we'll all be back again next year at the same kind of time debating whether Oneness will reappear after the New Year fireworks?

Going back to the initial quote on TV Forum when Oneness 1st aired back in 2017, I think we get a general air of how they were and still are perceived by most of us on this forum by TMD_24:-

This looks awful...

Channel 4

Channel 4 seemed to have dropped their Xmas idents quickly? Boxing Day or today, they were gone! Yet all the other channels are still broadcasting them? They also started their festive idents fairly late also compared with everyone else.

Challenge - June 2016 onwards

[quote="AS 21" pid="1202109"]
Don’t think they have shown The People Play episodes yet.


I remember seeing these on Challenge last year I think. I remember as everyone was getting the questions wrong and not winning the big amounts which was frustrating Tarrant - probably why he quit in the 1st place, as noone was willing to gamble, or being led along the garden path by the addition of the clock.

New Series 6 Max Bygraves episodes of Family Fortunes being shown this morning on Challenge! Very Happy. Nice to see a 35 year old programme aired on the channel!!

X Factor

Excellent they have used the 2011-2018 theme tune!! A more visually appealing logo than the red/yellow/gold versions they have used in previous series. Also, it was refreshing to see auditions set in a visually basic room/office much like the original Popstars and Pop Idol series rather than a room with background coloured backdrops and X's all over the place to make it look fancy. A much more refreshing and talented show than I was expecting.

Challenge - June 2016 onwards

Max Bygraves Family Fortunes was shown again earlier today, but the programme description said it was Les Dennis


That's interesting!! Have they reacquired it? They haven't shown Max for a number of years when they obtained Bob Monkhouse's final series. Has it been on all afternoon from 2.30pm till 5.30pm?? If so, this is a very welcome edition showing some 80's shows again!! Let's hope for some more! When is Max on again? BIG Money, BIIIG Money! Laughing
