BBC COVID-19 Slides

With a sprinkle of Reith!

I've been thinking about ITV's ''This was filmed before the Coronavius outbreak'' slide and I think this would go well with the BBC.

Channels:

BBC One:
*

BBC Two:
*

BBC Four:
*

CBBC:
*

BBC Alba:
*

BBC News:
*

BBC Scotland:
*

BBC Parliament:
*

Quick note:
The dubbed BBC Alba version was made through Google Translate.

Feedback appreciated.
Its a good show!

Can we have the correct spelling of programme?

Good idea in theory, bad in execution.

- Text and logos are all uncentered.
- BBC One logo is not pure white like it should be, plus a bright red background wouldn't work.
- A lot of the text doesn't suit the channels.
- Why use a black "BBC Two" logo when it blends in with the background?
- Why use the Parliament 'cogs' when it gets in the way of the text?

Overall, it feels like you honestly didn't even try to emulate the styles of these channels and just slapped Reith Sans on backgrounds which clearly don't work. I know that the BBC wouldn't simply rush out these boards lazily, since they already have the materials there to create them.

1.5/5.
Do you even read these?

program = computer program.
programme = TV programme.

Note: watching a "programme" on the iPlayer doesn't make it a "program".

Please read Jetixfann450's post above as it sums up how I also feel, rather than duplicating feedback for the sake of it.

I think some look alright, e.g. Alba and BBC News, though there are issues with others, for example, the BBC Two one is very hard to read.

Also, I'm afraid dosxuk is right; it's programme .

Feel free to keep having a play; I'm sure you'll manage to improve what you've got so far if so.
Guess who's big in the back time!

I can only mirror what the others have said at this point, but don't fret.
It doesn't necessarily have to look detailed. As long as it works and looks nice, that's good.
Here's a mockup I made on PowerPoint in about 5 minutes to show you.

There's an awful lot of text on there for a 7-12 year old to read - and I'm not sure they'll especially understand "observe social distancing."

I'd be inclined to argue something like:

--
We made this before we were all asked to stay at home.
Wash your hands and stay away from people who might be ill.
Stay at home and watch your favourite shows on the CBBC iPlayer.
--

would have been better for DeMarkay's slide - Something more Newsround-like, whle trying not to be too patronising.
There's a fine line between writing it so a nine year old can understand it and writing it so a nine year old feels alienated. We quite often forget kids are smarter than they let on.
DeeMartie and DeMarkay gave kudos

Formatting looks good, but the tone of voice might be a bit formal for that audience. Maybe make it conversational?

That text looks like it should be on CBeebies. For the relevant programmes, CBBC has text after the titles have played which says ‘Filmed Before Current Restrictions’.
