James Mobbs showed how it was done - just stock footage of empty locations to emphasie lockdown. The "Oneness" of the nation at the moment is achieved by staying apart.
How can it be 'Oneness' with nothing in the frame? That's Noneness. They are lovely idents but if they're wanting them to fulfil the existing brief (as they seem to be) then they aren't suitable.
Plus I imagine there might be some flak if the BBC are seen to have sent cameras out into locations around the country unnecessarily.
Representing people with objects seems a good solution to me. Shame they didn't have something better in the first place, and shame they seem to want to stick to the concept, but that's another issue
