Looks awful seems a backward step.


Really? I think it’s much better unboxed.


It looks inconsistent imo, just like for Breakfast where the BBC News DOG is centred while all the other DOGs are in the lower left corner...


What do you mean? Looking through DigitalBitRate it appears the only DOG on BBC One HD is the time in the right while BBC News HD looks like it’s DOG and ticker are appropriately placed like they are on BBC World.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

He means the breakfast titles where the bbc news squared logo appears in the centre.

It seems the DOG is more or less behaving now from what I saw this morning. It took a while to come back on after the news summary but after that was working.

One thing I did notice though is that during the news summary the white box resizes to fit the text, and does it very well and neatly. For the rest of the programme, for the subject, the white box stays the same size with the text squeezed to fit. Is this supposed to be like this or is the resizing not working and they're using this as a fix?

Perhaps the news summary graphics are controlled by Studio E's gallery, which is working, and the rest of the programme from Studio B's which isn't?

EDIT: Ah, sorry, ignore me! It seems like - looking at a subject caption from the first programme - it does resize, but they must just have hit the maximum box size today and then the text squeezes. Not ideal - perhaps they need to use a smaller default font size.
