BBC NC On Screen Graphics

A refresh! (January 2012)

Not something I normally do, but just thought I'd have an attempt at freshening up the current BBC News/News Channel graphics, so here they are:

For BBC World News, the only difference would be the lack of clock, as can be seen in the World News Today graphic.

The graphics would include a logo for GMT, World Business Report, The Hub etc and the colour of red will change if the program does not use red, such as Newsday below.

Any positive/negative feedback welcome!

The only thing I think is that the graphics would be better suited for a language where you read it right to left instead of English with left to right. It would make the ticker harder to read and it looks like something BBC Arabic would use.

Pretty much what i was going to say, except, where is the 'Channel Name'?

The yellow used here is quite offputting. I would recommend using a gradient of some type or another colour all-together.

Thanks for your comments.

I thought I would have the graphics on the left to add a bit of a different feel to the norm - not a good idea it seems!

I didn't include a channel name because I didn't feel it was necessary - I'm not a fan of DOGs and I'm sure most people are well aware they are watching the BBC NC/World and not some entertainment channel!

I will upload some changes later and take on board the comments that have been put.

One thing that hasn't been pointed out ... you don't appear to have allowed for overscan, where many TV's crop the
top, bottom, left and right edges of the picture by a non-specific number of pixels, to hide certain TX artefacts.

On a relatively modern TV where overscan is optional, and turned off by the user, your mock would look like this:
*

But ... on many older TV sets, especially CRT's, and even on a lot of modern flatscreens by default you'd get this:
*

So, at the very least, you'd need to re-edit how your onscreen graphics are displayed. Something like this:
*

On older TVs (or newer ones with overscan still enabled) that last image would look more like your original.
"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.

Stay tuned . . .
