It's been a good while since I posted a full update in this thread (about 6 months). But the site itself has continued to be updated every single day since then, so time for a bit of a summary of just some of what has been added in that time.
Throughout all this time, there's been rolling updates every Monday of each new ITV Creates
look. Interest in these has really waned somewhat as time has gone on this year, but the updates are still there regardless. We've also seen the launch of BBC Scotland
, more new additions to BBC Two
, and the refreshed BBC News graphical looks across both the BBC News Channel
and BBC World News
(finally added to the site this summer) as well as the regions. E4 coverage
has also been kept up-to-date as new idents and special pres for yet-another-series of Celebs Go Dating have appeared.
We've been jumping all over the place for the archives this year. Most recently a lot of new content from CITV's last In-Vision look in Birmingham in 2004 has been added to the site, with both main presentation
and invision sequences
. An era which seems quite poorly covered compared to some, as the heavy budget cutbacks were really showing prior to the long-running Brum service finally being axed by September. We've also been boosting up the archive content from some of the German stations, with coverage from the late-2000s on Super RTL
and, as mentioned above, some late-2000s stuff from BBC World News
too. HTV has also had a good look in, with both news coverage
and more pres
from around the turn of the millenium as the corporate look was creeping in and ITV's Year of Promise was still being touted as their big thing.
A few different archives have gone up over the past few months. Our oldest recovery to date from BBC Two Ceefax
way back in April 1983 has been added - back before Fastext was a thing, and when you could still find stories about the ill-fated Challenger Space Shuttle in regular use. And Teletext Ltd from February 1994
, complete with popular sections such as the Digitiser games magazine, and the ancillary 4-Tel service for Channel 4.
