The TV output of the new rebrand is to roll out this Monday, some of which can be viewed on https://jamesmobbs.com
My tweet was read out on BBC Four's Eurovision coverage and Rylan Clark-Neal replied to it. That's all.

Interesting that they've dropped David Lowe as composer. That didn't last long - 2014-19 if I'm not mistaken.

I wonder why Newsround can have so many refreshes yet the standard BBC News titles plod on? It's about time they focused their attention on updating those a bit.

It's just been mentioned on the 4:20 bulletin now by Alex Humphreys.

She also mentioned the 4:20 bulletin will be moving to 4:00 from Monday, but no length changes, still 5/10 mins

The timings for NR seem to be getting to the point where no kids will be around to watch it.

Don't most schools close for the day at 3pm nowadays? That's ample time to get home.


Remember there are no end of out-of-school activities, after-school clubs and whatever else so it's not completely unique that little Timmy finishes school at 3pm and goes straight home. It was tooted (and it comes up semi regularly) to extend the school day so it more closely matches working hours, ie 5pm finishes under the guise of helping working parents. Teachers didn't really appreciate that since they already work after 3pm for lesson preparing, marking and whatever else.

Of course its ironic when you consider little Timmy and friends already have more time "off" in a school year than any working adult in the country is legally entitled to anyway but I digress.
