I don't like it, I think its poor man news. Its like magazine programme. why the cameras are moving between places and behind pillars while interviews take place is anyone guess. Is the interview that boring? This isn't going to solve any of the problems which were raised before hand, if this carries on.
Is the next post dreaded?

The L3s are undeniably great. Finally moving away from a standard boxed graphic that UK news has been restricted to for years. I'd love to see a version rolled out across BBC News when it adopts its new Reith'ed graphics. Not sure how it would work for the News Channel, however. Seeing the it get its own L3s would be interesting though.

The longest BBC1 bulletins are 30 minutes and even these often feature softer stories (and the full-length regional bulletins are usually a majority of such stories) so it was never going to be a straight hour of hard news presented in a conventional style and such a bulletin would receive very few viewers.

I quite like the virtual weather screen that raises from the floor in the middle of the studio.

Finally we see a British News programme make use of VR and AR in an effective way that most of Europe has already implemented in its own news programmes.

Your reply does not match what I complained about, the camares moving around to maybe spice up the interviews.

This programmes is supposed to be 1 hour of Scottish news covering Local, UK and worldwide issues, plus sport and consumer affairs, and how it presents this is up to the BBC, However it get rather distracting when the cameras start wondering around.

Disagree actually - found it quite annoying when it appears right in front of a better large screen which is there right behind it in the studio itself.


Also considering all the moaning over the years about how Scotland is represented on the national weather map I thought the actual forecast was rather poor and did little to address that, though of course it doesn't help the current weather graphics are far inferior to what they had before.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

I thought the interview from the standing area with two guests worked well this evening. Nice to see Laura Kuenssberg reporting on an actual Scottish bulletin and Laura Bicker from Seoul in addition to the new reporters.

Can anyone upload a whole episode or a compilation of various elements? Please and thank you.

Also, the titles would be a little more exciting if instead of still photography they did a short boomerang or showed two images of the individual from different angles or reactions.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Really liking the graphics and the studio, although I think the backdrop is a little too dark. Presumably they want to avoid having a completely empty building behind them, so they’ve only used limited purple lighting. The titles are probably the worst part of the whole launch, they’re far too long and come off as totally random.

Clearly there is still creativity left at the BBC, let’s hope it’s extended to BBC News when it finally changes over to Reith.
