Happy Anniversary. This look was groundbreaking 20 YEARS AGO.... but now its time. IMO Its time for a new look for the next 20 years. For this current presentation to survive this long (albeit with tinkering and massages) and last all these years is impressive. Its showcased the BBC as a fresh innovative broadcaster that it is, many EU PSB broadcasters followed suit in tone and style. But IMO its lost its crown to the continent as far as news presentation goes. Yes they are smaller broadcasters, but seems like thats what the BBC is good at doing, streamlining things and rolling them out. Or should they stick with the same thing seemingly forever and continue tinkering. I look at what the CBC in Canada has done, certainly to a smaller and much limited extent. Also ABC Australia, they are preparing to roll out fresh new studio in NSW. Yeah you cant do it all in one go, but you have to begin somewhere. Whats the strangle hold on the creativity? I dont think a wholesale flushing of signature elements( ie. china red, thunderclaps) are called for, buts whats the look for the next 20 years for BBC NEWS? Can the trendsetter set the presentation agenda for PSB's for the next 20 years or will they be left behind endlessly tinkering? I think its worth discussing.
