A well respected senior studio director from BBC World News has posted some stills on insta with panoramic views across the City of London, including a commanding aerial view of NBH.

The images (and some video) are posted with the comment “I could tell you, but I’d have to kill you”, or words to that effect. (Filmed from atop the British Telecom Tower).

I fancy we’re in for new countdowns.

In his tweet he tags a Cyber Security Competition - so the 'cloak and dagger' quote could just be a reference to that?

This was my favorite countdown sequence - a modern up to date version of this would be nice - though the BEEB this last few years just cant do nice graphics[/url]

Ahhhh, I'm sure Paul Muilen is hard at work.



He's been doing them for a decade.

These promos pre move to NBH still give me goosebumps.

I think you're misreading that post, I think he was there for an entirely different reason than a countdown sequence personally.

I believe there's something in the offing.

This is seriously exciting stuff. First update since September 2018! Looks like they will be in the evening/night countdowns.

A music update would be more warranted than the ever changing parade of anchors/reporters.

God, I forgot how bad the smart glass OTS looked. It wasn’t just washed out it looked like images were pixelated.
