Does anyone have this BBC News 24 advert. It is BREAKING THE NEWS advert, and it probabloy changed every week, due to the content I saw. This is fantastic, does anyone have it?

No it isn't!
Putting aside my view of News24, the trailer is terrible!
Graphics notched up in a tea break and the clips are really badly edited! Most of the trailers are very good, but this has to be the worst!

Well, I would normally compromise, but you go against everybody. I didn't ask for your opinion, I asked if anybody has BBC news ad, not what the views were. Keep your boring, and unneccesary opinions to youself.

Have you anything to say regarding BBC News 24 that isnt a criticism?
If so I would like to hear it!

Well I like it Nick, they do update it often. It kind of captures the imagination and the drama and passion of the news (something cheshirec claims is always missing from BBC News 24). I like the way they cut to different newsreaders and voice overs on a range of different subjects, using the News 24 theme and some cool graphics. Can we see it on the site ?

Yes it looks as though Chesirec is in the minority, an a very small minority at that!

I quite like that advert as well as it shows just how much news is made in just one week. It usually changes every sunday.

they normally show that advert at about 7am - just after the regional news has switched back to Breakfast and there is a few second gap - i don't know if it is just in thew south east that we get it - but that's when i've seen it if anyone wants to capture it. i agree that it is a very good advert, but i also see what cheshirec is saying, that the clips could have been edited a little better - but it is still very good.

I must say, that I too like that advert - you get to see a few presenters aswell!

Actually, technically you are all in the minority, as you watch News24. Whereas more people watch Sky.
But as I said. My views of News24 aside the trailer is awful!
Especially the end graphics. And to be honest, it does look like it has been done up in a tea break!
And Martin, I have said plenty about News24, so has most of the rest of the media world! What is there left to say?
