You’d assume that the company would pronounce its name as it wishes to.


And, one presumes, because they're an American company, they're using the American pronunciation of the word "guru" as well.

More4’s DOG seems to have shifted to the right of the screen and right on the edge of the 16:9 frame and it looks like it would if it was on a 4:3 programme stretched to fill the screen. Same on +1 so it seems to be a decision rather than an error.

More4 HD is in the correct position and sizings, so it could be an error.

Question that has just come to me:
When it comes to ECPs, is there an option to squeeze them (in cases of films where credits are centred) and an option just to overlay (in cases of Channel 4 shows where the credits are left-aligned)?

I believe that was a new 'Black and Proud' ident just now.

They could at least have made a sting to go with the ident too.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Interesting gossipy anonymous comment under a Broadcast article about the C4 head of nations and regions praising their first year in Leeds:

Quote:
Here’s an alternative view of C4’s Leeds commitment:
The most senior role (daytime controller): shifted to Glasgow
Promised move of presentation from London: abandoned
Flagship local commission, the Steph show: to Expectation and a tiny token local partner
Leeds HQ studio: abandoned
C4 News Leeds bureau: on hold, popularly rumoured to have been quietly abandoned
C4 News regional co-anchoring: as above


The commenters on Broadcast do generally have a decent insight on what's going on so I wouldn't be surprised if the news and studio bits are true, they've certainly been very quiet about those aspects since the move to Leeds happened.
