Off and on, over the past few years, I have been toying around with some ideas with refreshing the BBC News branding, whilst not loosing the core elements that the brand is built upon.

I considered making full titles with some of them, but ultimately I got distracted, or lost faith in the idea I was working on.

So I am posting them here just for the sake of not keeping them stored away doing nothing.
Large images included...

From 0:15 - the short sequence swinging around the globe to reveal the BBC News (at 10) logo looks superb!

That was the only great part of those titles, as you can see here

I think that's being a bit harsh!

I love the echoes of the original 1999 look - eg the brief flicker of "scrolling" placenames and the reintroduction of purple (I have always thought the purple straps of that era were fantastic). I love the use of lighting and texture throughout the sequence. It's what I often feel is missing with some of the in-house designs the BBC commissions. I concede that your opening lacks a bit of oomph in the middle - when the music really kicks in, the animation is still relatively slow. But the production overall is slick.

Just an idea for the News at 10 intro:
As the endboard logo isn't the boxed logo shown in the trundle cam, maybe have the logo move down to the box and then have it fade?
My tweet was read out on BBC Four's Eurovision coverage and Rylan Clark-Neal replied to it. That's all.

Very nice effort within the constraints of the branding, but really do think more than ever they need to take inspiration from BBC2 and start afresh with a clean slate rather than just continue tweaking an ageing brand.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

I wonder what a full version of the first listing just below the 2019 subheading would be like, in full form.

I was inspired by the Impact titles, was there a way to bring some of the visual stylings from that, to the main branding
