Noticed in recent weeks that the 6pm ITV News West Country has started favouring putting up the namestrap to identify the two main anchors during the immediately-post-titles two shot, rather than waiting until after the post-headline sting & wideshot (as was previously the practice).
Given how relatively brief that very opening studio shot is, and how faffy the animating on/off the ITV News namestraps is, it has to start animating on within about a nanosecond of the mix from the end of the main titles, and finishes animating off about a nanosecond before we cut to footage illustrating the first opening headline. Not really a fan of what a visual rush this makes for.
