Originally when the integrated heads started the 'bom boms' carried on during the regional heads and so were on the output of N6. This was fed to the regions and they would just use the audio from that. I'm not sure how much it was used though, I'd have thought that lack of circuits into regions and timing issues didn't make it that useful

Think that ended when the BBC1 news bulletins and the News Channel merged. I've certainly not seen anything that would carry the 'bom boms' to the regions


I thought that was only the London (or was it South East then?) region who had a clean feed of the bed from N6? I think there was some specific reason for it, possibly to do with them crash opting rather than soft opting.
Write that down in your copybook now.

It's definitely Gill Sans text, but is that new or old style branding on the brolly?

(Good prep to bring it on their heatwave special all the same!)

It's the early 80s Central logo isn't it?


Incidently this is the start of their 'heatwave special' Laughing

STV North Reporting Scotland
BBC Scotland seemed to have had the font sorted out on the screen behind the presenter on the late news. However just having seen the trail for tonight’s Reporting Scotland during the news, the single use of the programme title on the screen seems to still be in Gill Sans. 🙄

Quite possibly. The way it’s done simply is that the bongs are played in by the sound op, from something like Instant Replay or SpotOn. This is sometimes triggered by a GPI associated with the vision mixer, sometimes manually. For the half way heads at 1315/1815, there was a different bed without bongs at the beginning but for bonus sound operator points you can run the main headline bed in synch with the network (judging whether you’ve got it right by using a pre-fade listen speaker) and then do a nifty cross fade as you opt.
