Well I think that was likely anyway given lockdown is hopefully no more from June.

But let’s not get too carried away - we may just see a return to groups of people looking gormless into the camera again.


Fixed it for you. I'm very, very cautious with expectations for June given what happened at Christmas!

But you're right. Let's not get too excited - for all we know, the first image we all see on BBC One as lockdown lifts will be the return of Swimmers .

It's likely just the return of the main Oneness idents, with the emphasis that we must all look after one another more than ever as we emerge from lockdown. Sadly, I don't think we're going to be seeing the last of Oneness for some time yet, as much as I'd like to.

Is that the whole Newmarch family having had a turn on BBC One now?





Also, I'm surprised nobody's mentioned the BBC's foray into in-programme-promos. Shortly after the start of MasterChef earlier in the week, a small caption popped up in the top right of the screen plugging Line of Duty for about 30 seconds. I was so unimpressed I nearly wrote to Points of View.

You really think a huge intrusive DOG on BBC One wouldn’t be mentioned here? There were posts on here the moment it reared it’s ugly head!

Those DOGs trailing another programme for the whole week are horrible, I hope this is not going to be a ongoing feature for every new series of the week.
Before we know it we will have reminders that East Enders is on at the same time that it has been on for years plastered all over the screen, probably even during the show itself.

I hope the BBC is getting enough complaints to make the marketing / promotions team think again.

It's standard practice in other countries, often staying in screen permanently. I'm only surprised ITV didn't get to it first.

ITV have done it in the past, especially for I’m a Celeb.

Having worked in some countries, and seen the mess of graphics everywhere on screen, I do appreciate the UK generally not doing that sort of thing - in the same way that Wimbledon looks classy whereas the other tennis tournaments cover everything in advertising.

One of the worst was Pakistan Super League cricket, where you were lucky to see any of the action with graphics everywhere including animated ones going across the screen.
It's clutter, and I suppose cricket is a slow moving game, but the sheer amount of it was mind boggling.

When it creeps in here, and gets its foot in the door, we will end up the same way.
I remember when trails for TV programmes started to appear on the radio - now it is impossible to escape them.
Even between rounds in Popmaster now!!!

Not sure if this has been discussed but just saw this truly bizarre sting after Question Time.

It was just a generic sting for the BBC, with the plain BBC logo appearing afterwards.

I understand they probably don’t want to be using the real news graphics for other purposes but who on earth signed this off.

EDIT: Understand it’s from a wider BBC promo, but showing it out of context in a 2 second sting is a bit messy,

It's 10 seconds not 2 seconds, and as you say it's part of a campaign that started with a much longer promo. In fact it's one of a number of 10 second cut-downs from that campaign. It's not out of context, because the longer promo and the rest of the collection of short promos gives it context.
