In a way, this already happens on the BBC Burmese Service's video bulletins

(On a slightly unrelated note, I've been trawling around all the other services and those that do a video bulletin seem to still be using the 2013 style..
e.g. the Hindi service: *)
At school they taught me how to be
So pure in thought and word and deed

In this case please tell me how much money did the BBC paid for the use of Gill Sans in all the years it has been used


If you'd like to know that, you'll probably need to do a FOI request. I can tell you a licence for a single computer for desktop use only runs around the £300 mark for the family. The sums increase significantly once you start wanting licences that let you embed the font into things.

Still, it's not an issue for me that you like the reith font, everyone is entitled to it's own opinion, I am just stating the obvious


I have not stated my opinion on Reith.

I strongly appreciate the fact that you answered me, and I apologize if i thought you gave your opinion on the reith typeface
