The music is dreary, the idents look like a bad mock made with a pirated copy of Photoshop, and as already mentioned, the new logo doesn't match up with the onscreen graphics. Overall, 1 out of 10, and that's being generous!

Back to the drawing board ... or Lambie-Nairn!

To be honest, when I saw these pictures of the rebranding of BBC Parliament, I thought for a second that they were converting into a channel dedicated to biking.

I assure you I really thought so for a second. I think this new branding is so little evocating a parliamentary channel, and the wheels, to me, look way more like a bike chainset than like the gears of democracy… Also, it is way less solemn than the previous branding… However, I like the use of the Helvetica font here, in various weighs.

(But if it makes some of you laugh, then it's okay too. I'd rather have my words making people laugh than making people cry.)

Also, Rob, is the black screen at the start of the link on your video your fault or their fault? These things can't really be helped but it's a poor start to a new look!

The black screen at the beginning is the fault of playout at Milibank Studios.

BBC Parliament's playout moved from (the ITV-owned) Millbank Studios to BBC Millbank a few years ago - 2010 or 2011, I think.

I stand corrected. I always thought Parliament got played out at Milibank Studios!

Looks like BBC Parliament is based at 4 Milbank. The BBC occupies the entire first floor and half of the top (6th) floor.

Edit: Milbank Studios is at the same address.

Well, this is awkward. It's showing me a 9th page when there is none. Ok, lemme make one...

I think the new look is OK. It doesn't hold a candle to the old look (which should have just had colors added), but it's alright... for 2016.
Colorband spelt backwards is "Natures" - wait, no it isn't. Oh well, so is life.
