...It's been bugging me for years and I've not found a suitable work around.

There is one obvious workaround

Well indeed, and I have used it in various places before - even cutting and pasting parts of videos to get a complete piece when recordings have ballsed-up. cf the latest BBC Parliament filler!

As for the channels it occurs on, it's usually only on BBC ONE and TWO Wink

No bleach, just no reticence to admit when my opinion has changed.

Look, I am an old-fashioned idents person, otherwise I wouldn't be hanging around here. But there's no point in me keeping up a pretence of outrage when I'm beginning to see the point. Are they classics? God no.

They've just grown on me, they're a bit gash, but there's an awkwardness about them I just like.
Gonzo, really needs a new signature.

Not sure if anyone has heard of this book called 'The TV Brand Builders' but it's an excellent book which talks about the how marketing has ingrained into TV presentation and content, it touches on the production and pitching of the circle idents and Peter Fincham's (and team) amused reaction to viewers making spoof versions of the 2006 rebrand. The relationship between top level management and branding, as well as ITV's 2013 rebrand to save an ailing brand.

Not presentation related but a topic that get's TV Forum equally riled up....Comic Relief & how rubbish it is these days. Well it seems the BBC has taken note and decided "to actually make it funny this year" with a "reboot" via these two...



Lenny Henry & Richard Curtis launched this years campaign a coupe of weeks ago agreeing with the common argument that the telethon has become too slick over the past decade. They promised this years show would be going back to it's "anarchic" roots with comedians rather than presenters anchoring and much more live stuff in the studio.

Considering the watering down of the show has never affected donations it's a bold move to shake things up like this so credit to them for trying something different rather than playing safe again.

Though it's not a studio, it's coming from one of the smaller arenas at the 02. They also announced Comic Relief events on the night at comedy clubs around the country, but Im not sure if they'll end up on the telly on the night


Hopefully it'll have a good atmosphere. The last one at the Palladium was the best in a long while

Depends if we're actually going to get a live, anarchic show or just an extended Live at the Apollo. I agree it needs freshening up because the telethon itself is becoming almost identical to Children In Need. I'm not entirely sure locking everybody in a theatre was the right move, but it's nice to hear they're trying to loosen things up again.
