The Preview on YT is on The Beatles channel on that platform, so it's by no means unexpected to be there in my view, considering those involved in it's production.

I had a look at the Beatles Get Back preview on there, couldn't believe the quality- was so bright and clean it genuinely looked like brand new digitally shot footage, not 16mm film that's been sat on a shelf for over 50 years. Still struggle to believe how they can make footage look this good.


Given Peter Jackson's incredible work on They Shall Not Grow Old which was digitally restored from much older film stock and they added colour, something like Get Back is a doddle in comparison.

The hypertech used in domestic receivers now does a hell of a lot of interpolation through the librairies within the CPUs, up ramp that a notch or two for commercial use and it's a blockbuster. I believe some work is in hand that will generate intelligent additions to add to 4:3 content to make it 16:9 in the lab. We're getting close to the ''anything is possible' stage given resource and finance.

There's quite a nice animation of the three Star channels logos morphing into the three Utsav channel logos here:

Why do those logos look so cheap?

I agree. I like the logo design, but the font they use looks tacky & basic. I believe it is Roboto.
Television is my passion.

Roboto? Isn't that Android's default font? That's like using Arial or Times New Roman! It's lazy.

And if they've removed Zoom 2 off the start of every episode, I'm heading to America to rip Michael Mouses ears off.
