BBC News at One has just used mostly two lines for the TOTH headlines - most likely just used the same set as Newsrooms Live.


They're all supposed to be two lines.

It dosent look right on two lines, too much line height and the letters aren’t close enough.

That's not strictly true.

The guidelines state they are 'normally' written across two lines. They also state that a one-line strap is acceptable where they would 'clash with the pictures'.


Quite right. My mistake.

Tyne Tees Look North (North East)
I think these are a good set of graphics for BBC News. I remember liking the look back in 2007, which came back when they switched to NBH. All the lower thirds mind you. But in the 00’s there was a refresh once a year, which clearly can’t be sustained now and obviously a minor refresh took place in March 2013 with the move to NBH to benefit from the newsroom view and camera that only Studio E can use.

I think this is a good refresh to the channel and they’ve obviously had done a lot of work for this refresh. There might be some bugs but this is normal and the BBC will iron those out over time. It might just be that these could only come out in production, rather than during testing.

This has probably been said before (mods may amend my post if so) but I personally don't see a point in having a BBC News (or the regional news) logo during the headlines, it looks a bit clunky IMO. I don't think many people before would have tuned in and confused it for Homes Under The Hammer! Other than that, I personally quite like it. Still not quite used to not seeing the old fonts (although the countdown definitely looks awkward in Reith) but I'm sure that will come with time.
