Yes, totally agree Steve in Pudsey! The flashing blue lights adds some visual flair to the ident, whilst hammering home social distancing, the role of the emergency services in the crisis, the police enforcing the lockdown rules and the support everyone can show towards the NHS - in a symbol of Oneness.
Obviously, there would be different groups of people clapping in different locations but all with the same clear message.
Plus they'd have the footage ready to go and available. And if not, they could carefully place some cameramen in desirable locations tomorrow night and every Thursday to gradually grow the portfolio of idents. Obviously to show the support to the NHS, not to provoke people play acting to the camera knowing they might feature in an upcoming ident.
Rather than a group of folk standing gawping lethargically at the camera as we have now.
