Of course
I see the 'Countdown' programme previously scheduled for 1857 tomorrow has disappeared from the current one. A new three minute Beginning feature

A cinematic spectacle with Chvrches and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra celebrating modern Scotland and the launch of the new BBC Scotland channel.

is now due at 1900,


The main reason for that is, because HD channel doesn't start until after 18.58. this was an oversight to start with, Confused

Classy launch so far with CHVRCHΞS opening up...

DOG on the top right (for a change). I guess that fits in with Alba.

The idents look promising but then straight into a different BBC Scotland logo on the programme which just looks awkward.

So is the department keeping its Scotland map, as seen in the opening there, although the 'Scotland word mark is now Reith.

That's the generic BBC Scotland logo, presumably indicating the producers rather than the network.

That was a very slick and classy opening. Nicely done

It's been a long while since I've seen a channel launch that made an impact on screen like that, normally these days they're just an ident into the first programme

The opening was very well put together

Although there's now many upset people on Freeview channel 204
