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.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

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?
