I see that the listings confirm that the NE&C edition will indeed be called "politics north" as expected.

BBC One HD will be showing the Leeds/Y&L programme for this first week.

BBC One HD will be showing the Leeds/Y&L programme for this first week.


HD seems to only show the regions which have the largest populations on rotation.

London
Midlands
Yorks & Lincs
North West

Two of those four regions have a HD gallery, so when they go to Leeds or Birmingham, the upscaled SD is testing to say the least.

Proper 'clean' SD from an uncompressed and component (rather than composite) derived source can actually look very good if properly upscaled to HD, and I've seen some folk who should know better be fooled.

In the cases you mention, it's because the SD images are being sourced from clapped out cameras, and possibly being upscaled using <cough> cheap and cheerful up-converters.

On my EPG, BBC One London SD is styled as 'politics london' while BBC One HD is 'Politics North'

It looks as though they are slowly working their way through the EPG putting the name of the regional programmes into sentence case. The North, Midlands & East versions have so far been changed.


Obviously they realised that it looked rather unprofessional for a presumably serious programme. Either that, or they've been reading our comments.
