It's not much of a refresh isn't it. I do agree with one thing here, that one poster here mentioned already with the NRK look, there needs to be a similar wholesale change applied in how BBC An Lá presents it's news to the public who speak their own version of Gaelic. There is no reason why the BBC should let that look continue well into the era of 21st Century news broadcasting. The audience should deserve more from their licence fee to try & modernize BBC An Lá for a modern audience.
I would give the opinion that, in a few years time, the BBC should make more efforts to drastically improve BBC An Lá for it's audience.
I think it should look like a lite version of Nuacht TG4 who are based in Galway in the west of Ireland. TG4 at that time made a really serious investment in their news programme studio facilities over two years ago. I would say that level of investment has made a huge world of difference in the feel of the programme is broadcast to it's audience who are Irish speakers primarily based in the Gaeltacht.
To an Irish audience, it looks fresh, it looks inviting & it looks more authoritative to anyone who wants to watch it or TG4 or Nuacht RTÉ on RTÉ One which is on every evening or on the RTÉ News Channel which is shown in Ireland & worldwide. The presentation of the studio looks better. It's studio can be adapted to look big with very minimal effort when other news programmes are shown on it throughout the year. BBC An Lá should be given the feel of Nuacht TG4, while half the size of Nuacht itself, but apply it with the current BBC An Lá look to the set & new titles. They may enough room for a BBC NBH Lite set to be put into it so it can look modern & inviting.
It also should be broadcast in HD if the BBC is able to do it given their current cutbacks.
However with saying all that; I don't know how big the BBC An Lá set is in Inverness.
Can anyone give us that information if you don't mind?
