Waiting for the demise of This Week to nick the neon theme... and doing it badly.

Many of those previous title sequences were certainly of their time, and probably quite innovative. However, it looks as though (as with Breakfast) they are sticking with having just a glorified sting masquerading as titles.

Let's see how it looks tonight. The theme remix sounds nice. It was lovely to see some of those old studio sets again.

I really like this logo and I think it’s gives the programme a bit more of its own identity. Of course we await the full package to really know how well it will work.

Does it remind anyone of Doctor Who?

Looking at the Doctor Who logos it doesn’t as much but it has that vibe to it.

It'll be interesting to see what they do with the studio for this new look.


I hope you like the colour pink.

Wow, it's not often people use a big studios to created theme music nowadays.

Nice that they were able to get George Fenton involved, who composed the original along with loads of other BBC News themes of the 80s (and Bergerac!)
Stuart, Custard56 and Hatton Cross gave kudos

Odd video of the recording of the theme tune.
I see the brass and barrel drums, but none of the electrical guitars going crazy..

I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve always been under the impression that such videos are generally a bit of a fake, as each section of the orchestra is recorded separately, and the full tune doesn’t come together until mixed afterwards.

James Mobbs did titles for Newsnight it was on his page weren’t they not gonna use those?

Perhaps this video is a more realistic example then?
