I think the first incarnation of the corporate look on BBC World was the best... it just seemed to get weaker and more watered down after that and now the same graphic (it may be different but I certainly cannot notice many differences at all) is used for everything, from program titles to actual channel idents... and the countdown is awful!

I like the BBC World set but it looked better with the old graphics... the dark graphics on World now need a bright set like N24 so set them off.

The best incarnation of the new graphics set I think, is on the BBC NEWS 24 promo... the animation looks more '3d' untikl the end when the '24' appears as in the normal idents.

BBC World is funded by adverts, not public money, and your opinions are not fact. Just because you dont like something doesnt make it bad.

I agree with 'psnowdon' in that the 2000 corporate look was by far the best look/sound. It was good when The World Today launched, and although it looked similar to the other World bulletins, it sounded different. They then rolled out the TWT theme across the whole channel, and it was a 'weaker' theme than the 2000 version.

As for now, in comparison to what it has been in the past, they've practically ruined BBC World in a presentation sense - it now uses practically the same titles and music as News 24. I can see this is an advantage for when they do joint bulletins, but there's no differentiation now. One thing I do like about the new World is the countdown music, and the channel ident music - those are nice remixes of the old theme. Apart from that, it's a clone of News 24.

like in the PM matin im not saying this is bad, and im certainly not questioning the BBC excellent reporting, but i am questioning the presentation of BBC world, it is in effect a clone of N24. now correct me if im wrong but in the UK are we, or are we not allowed to express an opinoin, within reasonable grounds?
