I guess it will grow on us.......

It reminds me (for reasons that I can’t explain) of a gaming website or of a gaming console packaging*.

*says the 50yr old who’s never touched a gaming console or visited a gaming website in his life. But you know what I mean, Rob. Right?

My gut reaction was a reminder of LWT's Night Network logo from 30 years ago!

I suppose the thought process is probably similar: night time = neon lights.


Seeing that video I hadn't realised how awful most of their previous titles were. Lots of globes and world maps flying around randomly and the ones from the early 80s were just dull.

I think the only one I have any affection for is the mid 80s one, but that's only because Comic Relief did a series of 'Nosenight' sketches with those titles

The less said about the framing of that video the better.

A new look for NewsNNNight then - long overdue really. The logo reminds me a bit of the old Lightning logo for the Nine o'clock News in the early 90s.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

I saw what i think was the lower thirds on BBC World News, it was a fade off fade on graphic, it should be like the Nine from BBC Scotland but with the NN logo.

Well that’s totally not what I was expecting. Was thinking lowercase, was thinking Reith Serif. Totally the opposite and shows how flexible Reith is.

Hoping for a The Nine style lower thirds given the strong NN logo.

Theme tune sounds great - is it me or has some David Lowe news theme been injected in?
