I don't remember the dance idents page having the current logo. When was that updated? It says the page was last updated in 2004 but that logo was introduced late 2006.

They'll have overwritten the original file in October 2006 to ensure the correct version appears on current/future pages, resulting in archived pages gaining the new logo.

Perhaps it is by which channel commissioned the show?

If you're referring to my earlier comment about how they choose what channel to show on the /programmes pages, then maybe, but then why does the TOTP page have the BBC One logo when it's no longer shown on there anymore? In fact full episodes are only shown on BBC Four, and TOTP2 has a different page.

Speaking of secret pages, nice to see these still online:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/special/politics97/
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/special/politics97/budget97/
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/special/politics97/diana/

But sad that the Budget 95 and 96 pages have gone.

Top of the Pops is still shown on BBC One at Christmas, remember.

The rest of the new channel pages for one, two and four have just gone live.

Such an improvement.

The BBC HD channel page hasn't been updated with the new look - presumably because BBC HD is going soon (or is it?).

Would like to see more parity with the new-style programme pages. And, for the title to be 'BBC xxx - Best Of' rather than 'BBC - BBC xxx - Best Of' (again like the new programme pages).
BUT the sites themselves are pretty cool.

They look so much better indeed. It gives an added weight to each of the channel's brands and identities.

My only problem is that I have to scroll down to look at today's schedule (Next on BBC One) for the next few hours, which is a bit annoying. I'd prefer that to be at the top to make it clear for visitors whose normal use of the website I'm sure is to see straight away what is coming up in the next hour or so. Or they could integrate it into the carousel either across or downwards.

Also, I think the LIVE should be a tad more prominent. Perhaps larger text and more opacity on the box behind. Similarly, I think 'Last night','Featured' etc. could be a little larger to just make it clear what has been broadcast and what hasn't.

At least the 'one' at the top is finally in the right font.

I think the TV guide page could be upgraded. I like the idea of having tv in the left corner, so involve that on this page, and perhaps make it longer to fit more programmes along a larger timeline.

I miss the idents link!

They're a bit slow to load for me, but I like the channel name in the centre of the loading swirly thing.

Just a question, when is iPlayer expected to be changed?
