International News Presentation: Past and Present


I think it’s incredibly pretentious, but as you say, as least it’s something different.


What makes CBC The National "incredibly pretentious"?

The ridiculously over-stylised graphics, and the unnecessary amount of presenters. I find it all rather smug.

But hey, “I think” was what I said. I didn’t say it was gospel. Haters gonna hate or something.

ITV presentation refresh in the New Year

ITV News will get a slight refresh. ITN usually refresh graphics and presentation every five or six years, so 2019 would be the right time, especially if there is a new ITV logo. I am not saying there will be any big changes to the look, but things will get a fresh feel. Better newsroom backdrop, new lighting, otherwise the rest will remain, as it has been said, one of the advantages of green screen is you can do what you like.

Oh so now there’s a new logo as well.

International News Presentation: Past and Present

This is the current CBC The National opener (as the compilation showed the old look):

I wonder how long it'll be before they go back to one anchor? It does seem to be very well executed, IMO, and props to the CBC for trying something different.

Blockbusters to be revived by Comedy Central

The Australian version “letters and numbers” isn’t bad however...
There is a version of Countdown shown in America, but with its tough letters and numbers rounds, it had to be dumbed down. It's called Sesame Street.

Seriously though, there was a pilot made in 1990.

Very similar to ours, if a little more basic.

Eurovision 2019

The UK needs to lose the “the rest of Europe hates us” and “it’s all political these days” attitude. There’s no desire to win, just continuous entry of sub-standard songs followed by bafflement that Europe hasn’t fallen at our feet and thrown their votes at us. As with many things, the UK just doesn’t get into the spirit of things.

STV Main Thread:

Looks like someone is expecting a payday for this deal and making sure ITV pays for it. It could also be a double bluff to keep ITV away. I still think ITV would be better off keeping far away from STV for the time being, Maybe once everything else has calmed down it could possible take another look.

All this talk of keeping ITV away or making them pay as much as possible has a slight whiff of arrogance to it.

BBC One Christmas 2018

It’s alright, if a little worthy. They’ve clearly decided that the John Lewis style advert is their thing now, which is fair enough, but the surrounding presentation and idents tend to feel like an afterthought.

I suppose having such a weak theme the rest of the year means they aren’t as restricted when it comes to having to fit into an existing style.

ITV are now eyeing up STV


Only after Ofcom approval and that far from a done deal

Wouldn't that be likely - they could say it would make the local news more relevant as England and Scotland increasingly have different laws and problems and less that is the same. Plus the BBC follow the same pattern.


Your saying there should replace three separate news programmes in to one for Scotland ? Madness

It’s ok, you’ve got That’s TV for local news.

BBC Scotland channel - service to also launch in HD

Do we know for certain that this isn't part of a wholescale BBC News rebrand? Obviously there are going to be changes when Reith replaces Helvetica. Maybe there'll be more than just a typeface change.

It looks to have more in common with Politics Live than it does with the rest of BBC News, so there may be something in that. I’d guess what we end up with when News (finally) adopts Reith will be somewhere inbetween what it is now and what the Scotland pictures look like.
