How about instead of having the globe on the whole screen (so that you get blurred / distorted edging), you have the globe go to a corner of the screen or the bottom of the screen so we can have the BBC One logo on screen during the promo, which I feel is the only thing missing so far in what has been an excellent package.

Any chance of that as an ident so we can see the globe without the Strictly logo obscuring it.


Sure thing Brekkie

Thanks Michael. I very much wanted the BBC One logo to appear in the same place rather than moving about like it does currently. I thought that as the main channel it should always take centre stage. As it would be daft to have the logo in the middle of the screen during trails and I did want to indicate that the promo was for BBC One throughout I decided to use the spinning globe in its stead. I'd say the idea was to make appear as though you're looking into a crystal ball at what the future holds but ASA's talking about resurrecting a 'marketing nonsense' thread and I don't want to make an early appearance. Very Happy

Thanks for the Strictly version - really do think it shows that returning to the globe doesn't necessarily mean going back to one ident. There are many ways it can be tweaked to give a bit of variation even within the red colour pallette, though personally I'd look to bring in other colours to vary things up a bit, though perhaps always have a strong hint of red there somewhere.

Back up to the menu style and although the globe masked over the promos looks great and would work well for the big channel promos and advertising the nights line up I don't think it is something that should be used all the time. I understand you not wanting the logo on all the time but actually the BBC is pretty much the only channel (certainly out of the classic terrestrially anyway) that have their logo displayed throughout a promo nowadays - it's fine to have it just appear at the end of the promo, and possibly at the beginning too but in that case you need to make sure back to back promos transition nicely enough.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?
