The previous titles and theme arrangement were subtle and understated, and really suited the programme.
I think all news shows need be a bit bolder and shoutier with their branding though these days. Not sure about ratings but hasn’t Newsnight been a bit in the doldrums?
The logo looks really good to me and a return to the title/logo staying on after the titles. Not sure if that looked a little messy though with Emily, the guests, the floor logo and on the back screens too in that same shot. Followed very quickly by another fade.
I don’t think that every BBC news show needs to have yet another variation on the standard News template. Let’s allows the graphics team a bit of freedom!
Agree about the endboard, don’t know whether it was a conscious decision but the lack of BBC logo is actually quite refreshing. Nicely old school just with the copyright line.
