Meant to mention this on Friday but C4 have been using some new "idents" for a few random shows over the last week of so, and they've obviously had such an impact that they've not registered here.
They're nothing original - the #Voicesof4 are basically viewers introducing shows as part of a diversity initiative, and there is usually a tedious link to the number 4 - Year 4, the number 4 bus etc.
More info here:
Channel 4 is today (14 November) launching a new diversity initiative, Voices of 4, which will see the broadcaster invite people from all backgrounds across the UK who have a connection to the number four to appear on screen and introduce peak shows.
The broadcaster’s creative agency 4creative has recruited 17 people from across the UK to introduce prime time shows in 130 slots, starting from today and airing till 11 December. Included in the lineup is a blind footballer who wears the number 4 shirt, or a Year 4 class at the world’s only Manx Gaelic speaking school, driver of the number 4 bus in Edinburgh and a drag queen who performs at no. 4 Canal Street in Manchester.
I've seen them for Gogglebox and The Last Leg and it looks like Sunday Brunch has one too. I'm guessing if they're running till the 11th December then the far superior Christmas set might return from that date - and then hopefully something new and more permanent in the New Year.
P.S. Talking of diversity good to note that C4 are using 4Seven tomorrow for a signed simulcast of Breaking the Silence: Live - a special show in which they hope a group of deaf people will hear for the first time.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television"
