Quote:The BBC is to suspend the licence fee as part of a one-off dispensation for the king’s coronation weekend.

The move will allow venues to screen the live coronation ceremony coverage on 6 May and the coronation concert on 7 May without needing to buy a TV licence.

It costs £159 annually for a colour TV licence and £53.50 for a black and white one.

After years in storage, the BBC One hot air balloon (G-IBBC) will be flying once again this year! According to the below posts on Facebook, it seems some work has been carried out to make the balloon air-worthy after a lengthy stay in storage and will once again take flight. There are no details on when and where this will be, but presumably, it will be appearing at balloon festivals this summer, including Bristol Balloon Fiesta.

Design in any field is no more immune from change than the latest trend in fashion, or online social media challenge. That's good, because you want to see the world around us being in touch with how people think or feel today. Television presentation is no different.

Today's idents, at least on 3 of the main channels, all follow the same basic vogue. Deconstructing the longstanding live action tableau with the television logo interacting with the environment. BBC 2 and Channel 4 deconstructing the symbol to components, like a curve or a metallic man made in blocks. Are we due for the next big thing?

Changing viewing habits mean that idents, and linear television as a whole, are evolving beyond the screen in the living room. Idents might just become a 5 second blipverts, ala ITV in the 70s. 

With that being said, what do you want to see in television presentation? Personally, I want an iconic symbol in the centre of the screen.

Thought it would be nice to post a few memories of News 24/BBC News Channel.

I remember this time the fondest. Yes, the graphics were very blocky and a bit over the top - but they animated nicely...

The best bit of that clip is the headline 'HIP' about a hip operation! Yes, just 'HIP'!!!  Big Grin

As you mention Krypton Factor, that gives an opportunity to pay tribute to Charles Foster, in-vision Granada announcer who provided the Krypton Factor voice over, whose death has been reported this week.

Mr Granada, in many ways, heard more recently as the voice over on Judge Rinder.

Admin edit: split from Gameshow thread.
