This maybe an old issue but watching BBC1 live for the first time in ages and the inconsistencies of their trailer endboards.
Four trailers before QT - one with the dropping O over image and centred text above, a second in the classic style with the logo midscreen and two in a style I've not noticed before with the logo at the bottom and larger text above, though still on the RHS.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

BBC One has been a mess for quite a while. And even when BBC Creative are handed a nice new OSP (i.e. BBC Two), they'll still manage to screw up the formatting of the trails, with a healthy dose of inconsistency.

Danny Dyer's new show is being plugged on the radio trail as "Wednesday, 9pm, on BBC iPlayer". I wonder what the rationale is behind that? Trying to promote the live feature of the service, or thinking the iPlayer brand may stick in the mind more than saying which channel it's actually on?

At least they didn't say it was on BBC Sounds.

They obviously think BBC1 viewers wouldn't watch it. Really is a BBC3 show at best I'd have thought - or to be more precise Dave.

I guess we should just appreciate that TV continuity doesn't follow the same principle as radio so we don't have "On Freeview 1, Youview 1, Sky 101, Virgin 101, Freesat 101, on iPlayer and in HD on... , this is BBC One".

The question really should be, why did they commission this programme in the first place? Was it under Danny's contract deal with the BBC, and they have to burn it off as quick as possible?

Yes, that's why there's an abundance of trailers for it on TV and radio...

There's a rare English regional variation on BBC One London this evening, with a debate called "London's Knife Wars" at 10:45pm.

It's a 45 minute programme, being shown in place of a repeat of A Question of Sport, so is pushing the repeat of Michael McIntyre's Big Surprises back 15 minutes to 11:30pm.

I'm a bit surprised it wasn't shown at the same time yesterday in place of Have I Got A Bit More Old News For You, as that was a 45 minute slot, so wouldn't have affected subsequent programmes, and was also followed by "Kids in the Crossfire", which had a similar subject matter to tonight's debate.
