Perhaps Sky are giving a little too much coverage to Ipswich but at the moment I am listning to radio 4, World news tonight. Most of the program so far is about two US aircraft landing on a US airbase on the other side of the world years ago! Who cares other than the BBC and the Guardian?

Anyone know when Sky News is going to apologise to the McCann family and especially Robert Murat for the its coverage of the search for Madelaine and its propogation of inuendo. Seems to me they are equally at fault as is the Express group, particularly the reporting of Martin Blunt on Robert Murat.

It was good to see the old two-person format back at certain times over the Easter period; for example Steve and Emma this morning. Why can't they admit that the emphasis on one person presentation has been a mistake? Strange, though, that pressing the i-button on the Sky box this morning gave programme details for Blair's resignation day! Weird!!

They did the same on Friday aswell, was much better than the normal shite we get. I know they will say we won RTS award again but thats only due to the fact there is no competition for them at all, not a case of being really good, just being best of a bad bunch

So, another set of graphics set to be on screen according to somebody on another forum. Rumoured to be much like CNN Internationals graphics. I'd guess thats a good sign.



Also, a tweak to the 2005 logo was mentioned, which I'd guess means a swap of the colours or what Sky News Australia have done, which is removing the border.



I hope these new graphics are on our screens soon!

Speculation on another forum suggest the new graphics are now imminent.

Hello, I'm just curious, does Sky News and Fox News do their graphics in-house or do they outsource these projects ? I'm not talking about the day-to-day graphics, but the general concept, the revamps, the whole graphics package, how it all works together etc ?

Thanks !
