Countryfile

Updated titles (August 2013)

I note that Countryfile now has new titles and an updated, more stringy orchestral, theme tune.

They've dropped the flying motif (looked a bit like a bird or a glider) in the title so now the show's logo is just it's name in their usual font. The images in the titles do look great, but now without the flying motif you just get a load of countryside views followed by a pretty rubbish reveal of the programme name - it's like some sort of Powerpoint transition effect.

The old ones with David Lowe's previous theme were much better in my opinion.

I agree too. I think the new titles and theme kicked in last week (saw the repeat of last week's episode today). Much prefer the previous theme.

The new titles and theme debuted on their 25th anniversary show a couple of weeks back - in fact I think the new look was highlighted by the CA.

On a related note, that episode featured a Countryfile quiz between two teams of viewers, and one of the questions involved putting four of the show's old theme tunes and their respective title sequences in chronological order. Tricky unless you've been watching it religiously for years!

Agreed, it was silly to move a programme like that away from such a rural area.

But seriously how do you think it's changed? I don't watch myself so just curious.

Upon watching last night's episode, I realised that the logo transition into the weather offends my eyes even more: iPlayer Link.

Also, looks like they forgot to tell the Weather Centre they've ditched the flying thing on the logo.

I refer only to a presentational point of view...

the rural area that is Brizzle is much better?!
