I would expect the new graphics to take a cue from the social media graphics which currently use a mix of Reith Sans and Serif

Maybe something like this...

I'm obviously behind the times here!

In the past, BBC News has tried to cater to 14:9 and some 4:3 parts of the world. 2013 was when the last set of graphics were designed, and the guidelines for international programmes suggest the standard 16:9 safe areas as used by Sky News, etc.

It is possible the next set will be designed to also fit those 14:9 safe areas.

Don’t get what’s so hard to understand about the idea that moving sport/news is on a case-by-case basis.


Well, indeed. And the most obvious point is that, as an 8.05 kick-off, it could move over at the very start of extra time rather than, as last time, halfway through it.

Except it wasn’t at the very start, it was messily about 1 minute into it.

They’ve obviously realised the situation in the last round wasn’t the best so changed their mind this time, rather than it being a case by case basis.

That’s one thing I wish they did. BBC needs to supply the US with either a straight out 16:9 widescreen feed or letterboxed 16:9 in a 4:3. Their 14:9 in 4:3 isn’t working well anymore especially as content is moving out of safe areas.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
