Parliament – seeing the bigger picture

Hooray – BBC Parliament is now full screen on freeview. No more quarter screen misery.

Now, if we could persuade them to get rid of all the ‘branding’ including the DOG* and the huge red band that carries the titles and crest across the bottom of the screen, how lovely it all would be.


* DOG = digital on-screen graphic. Those annoying little things that remind you which channel you’re viewing on many digital TV services. Particularly irksome are the BBC ones which aren’t as transparent as most. The BBC hierarchy apparently believes that the riffraff who watch their output are too thick to remember which channel they’ve selected. Herumph...

Welcome traffic.one - glad to be of service. I know it's a little tragic cassilis but it's good to have a hobby!

You need a tv like mine. The graphic thingy is rendered indistinguishable in the general fuzziness. Of course I can't read the subtitles either but you can't have everything in this life.

Hmmm I wonder who that could be? Maybe if you bought them a shiny new one they'd give it back :-)
