Looks like something Perfect Curve would come up with!


You read my mind. It's horribly reminiscent of that W1A episode.

I'm a little annoyed that it's being rebranded and that the BBC Three brand is staying intact. I find it really strange that the BBC will have three channels that air on television - BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Four. It's 2002 all over again.

Nothing mentioned by the BBC Trust has indicated that the BBC Three brand would disappear, so I'm not sure why people think BBC Four would be an unsustainable numeric in the 'family of channels' on offer (especially as it started when BBC CHOICE was still broadcasting).

Having 'one', 'TWO', 'Three (online)' and 'FOUR' is no more illogical than ITV removing the numeral from their premier channel and yet retaining 2, 3 & 4.

I'm sorry but I disagree. ITV comes before ITV2, ITV3 and ITV4. BBC3 comes half way through a sequence of BBC channels. I really feel both BBC3 and BBC4 should have been rebranded. Though to be honest will BBC4 also disappear in the near future? Wink

Neither scenario is ideal. But having ITV, 2, 3 and 4 is more sensible than having BBC 1, 2 and 4. Plus nobody liked "ITV1" anyway.
