Ironically, yes. Yes, it is.

It is half term week.

Totally agree. It was clear that the 1997 rebrand on TV was designed to look good no matter what aspect ratio you were watching in, with not just the logos, but also all text such as on programme menus, trailer endboards, etc. all centred.

I never liked the centred menus - as each individual line was centred. If they'd taken the longest line, centred it, and then left-aligned the remaining lines to it, I feel they would have looked a lot better.


I think the perfect medium is the 1997 logo in the centre at the bottom, and the menus with the 1991 style alignment.

Point taken on board, I'll give the attempts at humour a miss for a while.


As you've already said elsewhere on here you're 13 years old, perhaps at 10:54am on a Monday morning (which sounds like a school morning break sort of time) a more productive use of your time could be, I dunno, homework or something? They do say your school days are the best days of your life, considering everything that comes after is a necessary evil.

I know it's been said a million times before, but I genuinely think there's somewhat of an ageist agenda on this forum.

While I somewhat agree, Neil was making a valid point about the joke. In hindsight yeah, it wasn't funny and it's borderline controversial to mention the word Nazi in anything but I'm still happy to be a member of TV Forum and I actually feel quite lucky that I am respected (for the most part) the same as any other member.

Is there a chance a PDF copy of the guidelines can be obtained through download?



Unfortunately not, that image is something I cropped from a larger image of a scan I found on the MHP PP, taken from one of the pages of a document sent to newspapers and TV listing magazines so they could reproduce the new logos accurately.


Put an FOI request in for it. They can only say no.
