Why does the white background on the clock shift out of line at the bottom, and mess up, from midnight onwards always?



ive posted a screenshot to show you what i mean. it always does it after twelve and it's been annoying me for a few weeks. bloody thing.

Are you sure that you didn't just post that screenshot so we could all look at Steff's legs?!!



If you didn't, and that clock thing really does bug you, then I don't know what the answer is! But it's not the sort of thing to keep me awake at night anyway. But if you need to submit more examples, just to prove to us all that it really happens quite a bit.... then more screen grabs of nice legs please!

Yes, Musey you are not alone it if small but FRUSTRATING. It seems that after midnight they don't care what happens to the graphics or anything for that matter. During one of the weather reports at 03:30ish this morning the time disappeared totally.

arrrgh see its doing it again. break finishes and it approaches twelve, which can only mean one thing. time for the clock to get bent and disappear!

it's like the millenium bug isnt it. once a certain time is reached, technology is unable to cope.

Maybe it's to do with Sky repeating a lot of pre-recorded stuff though the night and not wanting to give the game away, or maybe their graphics were on the blink.

You can tell second time around that Francis Wilson is pre-recorded through the night, his unique style you can tell a mile off when you have heard him say something earlier.

The sports is pre-recorded which I don't mind so much as I am not that bothered, they should cut the sports slots overnight down to one an hour as it is. Or, Graham Winch could present, as whats the point of him presenting for two hours?

3 annoying things, they end the through the night with the weather and then start Sunrise with the weather, bloody daft.

Secondly, not enough Emma Crosby.

And lastly, that bloody breaking news strap
