I saw the TV package for BBC Scotland last month and was impressed by it, but it got me thinking, what would BBC Wales as a TV Channel would look like.
So I took some research into the subject and I know BBC Scotland is practically BBC 2 in Scotland during the daytime with a different schedule from the evening onwards (like BBC Three in a way), a schedule with programmes fitting to Scottish made programmes, so the idea for BBC Wales is to have Welsh based programmes.
The way I want BBC Wales to work is to takeover from BBC 2 Wales in the evenings (which saves trying to find a suitable separate slot on the TV guide, so it introduces BBC Wales as a TV Channel with a major TV timeslot without completely ousting BBC 2 Wales.
I got to work on the layout of what the BBC Wales logo would look like (again taken inspiration from BBC Scotland with it's S logo and edited it into 3 slanted/curved boxes to make it like a W) and this is what I came up with as a start:
Now some of you are probably thinking "Why not have the Welsh Dragon there?", the thing is I want to make it as simple and focus on as much Welsh features as possible and not just the dragon.
The Idents will mainly have motifs that what make up the Welsh flag in essence, there are 5 Idents in particular and use music from the BBC Cymru Wales Frontcap from Late 2008 and feature some of Wale's biggest landmarks and sights (tried to make 6 with the 6th being the beginning of the Offas Dyke trail in Prestatyn, but no footage can be had), here they are:
BBC Wales - Pierhead Building and Senedd:
BBC Wales - Wales Millennium Centre
BBC Wales - Pembrokeshire
BBC Wales - Snowdonia
BBC Wales - North Wales Beach
I also included what the BBC Wales Day Menu and Slide would look like, based the menu off what the BBC Menu's were back in the 90's, with a modern approach to it ofcourse:
BBC Wales Menu:
BBC Wales Programme Promotion Slide:
I will add what a BBC Wales TV Channel Continuity would look like (which will include introductions to Programmes and a Closedown, so plenty to look forward to...
Suggestions and Feedback is appreciated, Improvement is needed so thanks for viewing first time round...
