I love the way the DOG/ticker pops up bit by bit. Looks cool! Studio looks impressive too, also the translucent boxed logo is good.

Can't wait for the TOTH.

I notice there's a video of how a national bulletin will look.

The screens do seem to be so much better than they used to, the cracks are far less noticeable.

Sport coming from the left side of the studio (the area seen with the laptop earlier).

The background looks the same but it looks fantastic on the improved screens.

I just wish they improved the quality of the online feed, it still looks terrible.

EDIT - 3000 posts!

The presenters don't use laptops anymore.

YUK! This new look BBC News is to dark. I can hardly see the presenters. I especialy do not like the way they changed the font to Gill Sans which is old fashioned and the ticker to Dark Grey. The only thing good about this relaunch is the music and Title Sequence.

They shouldn't show the LH end of the wall there. If they framed it so it didn't show it'd make the studio look bigger, as if the wall may continue.

Err, you still half asleep in the dark or something? Or just blind?
