Great theme and titles - hopefully they'll keep the effort up on the tight editing of the clips, they've been excellent for the first two editions of the new look.

I like the new look.

I have to say, I think Newsnight has come on leaps and bounds since Esme Wren has taken over as editor. And I confess I have developed a soft spot for Nick Watt, the political editor. He's great to watch.

And closing credits too, though they missed the first few bars of the theme.


They seem to always be using the closing theme now, at least they have on the few I’ve looked at on iPlayer.

I do like the new closing theme, although I really liked the old one, despite it rarely ever being used.

From looking at the episodes from August still on iPlayer, all seem to end with the standard short close. When did they abandon the once regular practice of playing the credits out over a musical number of other artsy performance?

When Ian Katz left I think, novelty closings were very much his thing.

The clip of Philip Lee defecting to the Lib Dems flicked to the below a few times.. peculiar.

A Japanese shopping website? Weird. Confused


Looks Chinese to me.


I recognise the language. It's a Chinese website.


That settles it, then. It's some sort of Huawei interference that's to blame... Wink Laughing

Every time I catch the end of Newsnight, they seem to miss the first few seconds of the closing theme, resulting in an awkward silence as we pan away.

Surely they’d have learned to make sure the right fader is up by now?
