I do think the current titles have way too much focus on Holly and Philip. There's a whole team on the show and of course Eamonn and Ruth and none of them get a look in.

I do think the scrolling titles of the 90's, the blue and yellow titles of the start of the 00's and the box titles at the start of Fern and Phil's reign really reflected what the show is all about with all of the guests, presenters and team together.

This mock does a good job at this, definitely something ITV should consider when designing new titles.

The bits you added were certainly the strongest part of those titles, and it even works with the brief clips of Phil and Holly, though I think for the concept to work you need to cut straight to a title card at the end. I agree though it sums up the show much better - it's always been about the "family" at This Morning and the current titles are just all about two people.

And as mentioned I don't get why they use these titles with Eamonn and Ruth - even if they don't give them their own version just using the short version with the bridge would be sufficient.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

I'm working on something similar to that which keeps the pre-filmed bits to a minimum.

Its nice, if anything I'd say it scrolls a little too fast. The shots of Philip in the cafe are cringe-worthy though, but I know that isn't your fault. The title sequence is awful as it is so you have certainly improved it.

New version (sans cafe)

I've worked the filmed shots in a lot neater, made them shorter and snappier, and included more programme footage.



With regards to it scrolling a little too fast - it always used to fly by in the original. I've tried to do it slower but it doesn't look right.

PS. Yes, I've cheated and flipped the bridge to make that sequence last longer.

It looks really professional and very in keeping with the programme's history, but also keeps it pretty modern and fresh. The footage from the current titles is well edited and works amazingly well with the scrolling videos.

It's very impressive work.

The only thing I might suggest as an improvement is putting in the logo at the beginning as well, which was part of the titles in the 90s, but other than that, it's great.
