I HATE IT when there are two tickers are animating on the News Channel.

Sourced from MediaSpy Forums.

Considering that each of the newsrooms now have VizRT running their Aston outputs, often they would activate it when the News Channel is broadcasting a programme from said studio. Sydney for most of the day, Melbourne for a portion of the evening, WA for the late night run.
Every now and then they may activate it during a Playout Server program, but there is not need to run it when a Non-Sydney studio is live. And the revamped graphics makes it so obvious. Mad

- I really liked the ITV News 2009-2013 look - for me it harked back to the ITN look of the 1980s before the news turned blue. Also had by far the strongest presenting team.

- The BBC News Clamshell look of the mid-noughties was the strongest they've had and the 2008 revamp was a terrible step back. David Lowe's music is long overdue being dumped.

- The short lived 2001 Big Breakfast revamp was actually rather good and bought the original idea from 1992 of short features never lasting more than 5 minutes into the 21st century

- The 2's should have been ditched a decade before they were

- ITV is often superior to the BBC when covering major news events, elections and for quite a bit of sports coverage too.

I never saw C4 Daily but I thought the first version of RI:SE had a lot of potential.

I think GMB actually owes a lot to RI:SE.

Channel 4 current idents are rather good , as opposed to what many think about them.

Just there's a lack of variety within them, mostly the number of them and the music soundtrack, but things are not black and white, I hope people will understand that


I do like the spinning cricket ball one, reminds me of the BBC 1 globe from the last century !


I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this! Indeed I found the similarity makes for some easy and fun mashups of the two just the other week.

The use of "LIVE" DOG during programmes. Thanks to the fakery hoo-ha a few years back ITV now only show the DOG when it's actually live. So during Saturday Night Takeaway/Dancing on Ice/I'm a Celeb my eyes constantly get drawn to the appearance and disappearance of that DOG.

I was never hugely fussed about the loss of regional ITV.

"That's all from the BBC News at Six. Now on BBC One the BBC News where you are. BBC BBC BBC..."

I would like to repent my judgement at the time of "Rhythm & Movement". It was by and large, a decent identity. I will however never change my mind about Oneness.

P.S. great thread.

The first use of a 'LIVE' DOG I remember was the Apollo Moon shots 50 years ago.

It was used because back then it was nothing short of a technological marvel that you could get live pictures from the Moon.

However, things move on. I can get live HD images from my own doorbell, on my phone, just about anywhere on this planet, so the 'LIVE' DOG really is totally superfluous when often used on pictures coming from a camera only feet away from the studio

This one is going to be very controversial. But, I actually don’t mind 4:3 archived shows being stretched to 16:9. Infact, when I’m watching Family Guy on ITV 2 I’ll deliberately watch on the SD channel so it’s remastered to 16:9 Embarassed

This reminds me of a particular dislike of mine - the BBC's use of 'News at...'. When I was growing up, 'News at...' was very much associated with ITN - News at One, News at 5.45, News at Ten. Over at the BBC, it was '...O'Clock News'.

I can understand why the BBC uses it now - to reinforce the 'BBC News' brand - but whenever someone talks about the 'News at One' or 'News at Ten', it just makes me think of ITV. I still refuse to call the BBC's bulletins anything other than the 'One O'Clock News', 'Six O'Clock News' etc.

ITN started the process of renaming their lunchtime and evening news bulletins away from the times, to a generic name - ITN News at One or 12.30 was renamed ITN Lunchtime News in 1992. ITN News at 5.40 was renamed the ITN Early Evening News in 1992. Only News at Ten of course kept its original name until 1999.
