The fonts used are supposed to be two variants of Reith. This example isn't.

That's the presumption - we know from previous experience people here care far more about BBC branding guidelines than anyone at the BBC.

Yes, as I said above, how do we know what the branding guidelines say?


To sum them up: The programme name should be in Reith Sans (animating from Reith Serif, unless the animated version is impractical due to time or technical constraints), the day/time TX info should be in Reith Serif. The guidelines do not allow for other fonts to be used. The short duration trail endboard is to only be used on 10 second trails, all other trail durations should use the full length endboards and opening animation.

That font animation is an odd idea, looks like a mistake. Wonder what the idea is

I can't say I mind other fonts though, it's a good way of bringing some of the character of the programme to the trail

As a tribute to Diana Athill, who passed away last week, BBC 2 is repeating an episode of Imagine from 2010 which she featured in this evening.

This seems like a slightly odd scheduling decision, as it will be shown at the same time as a new episode of Imagine on BBC 1.

I’m not sure why, but BBC Two’s online schedule shows a mid-afternoon “closedown” all weekday afternoons next week (4-8 February).

They’ve just started reruns of A Place to Call Home Season 5 in the 3pm slot this week, which I expect will continue next week (there are 12 episodes). Yet there’s no mention of anything scheduled at 3pm online:

The font animation is a good idea and if they wanted to use a custom font then use a programme specific endboard, but other then that they should be using it as designed.

There does seem to be something wrong with the BBC Two schedule over the next week or so.

On Digiguide, "This is BBC Two" is scheduled in all nations on Saturday at 8pm, 9pm and 10:45pm, and again on Sunday at 01:15am and 02:50am (the 02:50am scheduling is probably the only correct one).

Then on Monday, a Picture of Britain (a 1 hour programme) is scheduled from 2pm to 3:55pm; and on Tuesday,
Britain and the Sea (another 1 hour programme) is scheduled from 2pm to 4pm.

Update: to quote someone at Digiguide

BBC have changed listings provider but have entered my email address incorrectly and we aren't receiving schedules. Communication via email only and up to 48 hours response. As soon as this issue is ironed out we'll have it sorted. Stupidly they never told us until after it was actioned either. Double annoying.
