So is the BBCNWT one an older track?


Yes, it was used from Autumn 2007 until the April 2008 rebrand of all BBC News programmes/channels.


And what a farce it was that it was replaced! Fresh, modern - the right direction. Then LN came along - the man who says you shouldn't bring elements of design forward and wants 'back to basics' - read 'Back to the old'.

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!

Did you catch the 'Justice for Shafilea' special? The titles forthat were really basic, but still the best! English Regions have that crap title sequence in the second video, except for NWT, then Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales have tweaked versions of the National titles, looks quite bad! Also, why does Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales have to have one service covering the whole area instead of Regions like England?

That's another debate, for another time! I like the nations titles, the colour injected looks good! Just the regions titles that look flat, boring and badly thought out!

Yeah! If Scotland, NI and Wales are nations, shouldn't they have the 1/6/10 then do actual local 'sub-opts; and 1.30/6.30/10.30?

Can't you take a hint? It's off topic. Start another thread, if you must.
