Completely wrong logo in fact, as it's the wrong font weight. Normal instead of Bold.
London Lite, Owen_ploc and Ittr gave kudos

This reminds me of the 2004 BBC London logo

The Look Hull bulletin just now went out with the old graphics, with all the names, bar the presenters, unnecessarily having the old Live graphic tag onto the template

And I'll tack on this sports graphic, which while the regions produce some questionable stuff at the best of times, this seems a whole lot worse than any other sports scores created by Hull recently

On that note, It’s always fun to see the regions having to deal with a football result that doesn’t have a standard result, and see how they make a mess of it destroying the template.

A match that has either gone to extra time, or penalties, or has had 2 legs with an aggregate score, or is a late result, or has been postponed...

Or teams with long names (like Sheffield Wednesday) that they allow to run outside the allotted box,

Almost in full, just to demonstrate the extent of the graphics issues. Most sports pictures removed due to rights issues.

I know the Hull studio opened a year or so ahead of Leeds's move, did they get different/better cameras?
Write that down in your copybook now.

What’s really annoying over the Pennines they have proper modern 21st century facilities yet we are left with 90s technology in Yorkshire, it’s a joke.

The whole English regions thing is a joke, but the argument is would HD improve the content, probably not. 15 or so times the cost of Plymouth’s Tech upgrade - is it worth it when the corporation is trying to save money?

They’ll have to go HD, and indeed be broadcast in HD at some point surely

Even if is 10 Years, 20 Years...

And it's a fat lot of bloody use certain English Regions (e.g. Plymouth, Salford) having been made in HD for ages, when they *still* can't actually sodding well be watched in HD. Rolling Eyes

BBC London is shown in full HD during Breakfast on the NC at 0627. Bulletins at 57 and 27 past each hour use a pushback for sign language.

You can see the benefits of Plymouth and Salford in HD during the News Nationwide segment on Afternoon Live when they go to those regions and also see how bad the other English regions are in SD.
