Hugely significant development - Final Score as I mentioned in the Sport Thread has finally gone for full 16:9 graphics.

Finally, the BBC catch up with Sit-up.

Though it's not the end of the safe area, it's just a switch to 16:9 graphics safe isn't it?

Presumably they've also stopped AFDing 4:3 CCO at the same time? (AFDs trigger decent Freeview boxes connected to 4:3 TVs to switch between 16L12, 14L12 and 12F12)

I wonder how long it'll be before luddites with their TV's setup all wrong start to complain to PoV about this?
"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.

Stay tuned . . .

Well sit-up got it right with a handy instructional video on setting aspect ratios. All the BBC need to do is to get June Whitfield sat in a riser recliner, showing viewers how to do it with a giant remote.

16:9 graphics, and they still squash-up the lettering and use ridiculous abbreviations. Rolling Eyes Oh well, it's a start, I suppose...
