BBC Cymru Wales New HQ

Move-in delayed until Summer

The completion of this new - and totally unnecessary - BBC Wales headquarters building portends the demise of BBC Wales ( just as New Broadcasting House in London heralds the end of the BBC itself).

Probably no one in BBC Wales has ever read C Northcote Parkinson's brilliant book "Parkinson's Law or the Pursuit of Progress". If they had only done so they would have encountered this dictum
Quote:

"When a company or other organization is finally able to plan and build the perfect building for itself, the building best suited to its needs, that organization is in the throes of petrification and death.

What the flip are you on?

so you know for a fact (please show your working out) that it was totally unnecessary. Companies move all the time due to lots of reasons - tell us why you know best.

Not sure how new it is but the BBC Cymru Wales splash at the beginning of promos is one of the nicest bits of BBC presentation around.

Yes - very nice indead and animates really nicely too. A rare example of the box working within the presentation rather than feeling like it is slapped on.

It has been in use before local programmes for about 6 months but I've only recently noticed it too.

The BBC Radio Wales and Radio Cymru slides are beautiful also.

Slap a BBC 1 logo on that and it would be a lovely graphic/slide for the channel.
