And NWT's actual titles sequence isn't by LN? Yet its it a lot better than the national set! The NWT special ones are amazing!
Just clearing up:
50 seconds in is what NWT had replaced in April '08 after 5/6 months with this:
50 in again - note they kept the same shots!
But yes, vile - then Christmas 2010 saw these made in AfterEffects by Graham Price (whose other work includes the black 2007 titles above)
It was then dug back up, updated and used when they moved from Salford Quays in 2011!
Yes they look stunning and it's a shame London want the regions to use the dross Lambie-Nairn 'came up with' - they've always felt like an after thought to me, the region map titles in 1999 worked better because there was SVGs of each region's coverage area and they edited a text file with their region name and added in a list of places which generated the titles, the 2008 titles template was very rough and ready and was just enter some place names and footage and have done with it!
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...
