BBC release MP3 CDs

Every so often, the BBC does something that really impresses me. Via chaff, news that the BBC is offering MP3 CDs of some of their dramas.

BBC's press release (from April 3rd 2003!) here, with six titles offered initially.

Google results here.

(Then again, every so often, the BBC does something that doesn't impress me at all. Like its recent rebranding of BBC News 24.)

41 comments and trackbacks

Are you saying the fact that the globe rotates out from the region of the world that the lead headline is from, isn't impressive? Oh, hang on, you'd need to be able to read that swirling text to even consider that.

I mean you can't _really_ see that the top of hour titles are being live rendered, as opposed to the static ones that you get at the half-past junctions - oh no.

Posted by: The Gareth on January 5, 2004 10:01 PM

Oh, I noticed the completely pointless swirly live-rendered text. You'd have thought that it could look a little better and perhaps be anti-aliased or some such equivalent, but no. It doesn't help that the BIG ARIAL HEADLINES on the SLIDING BAR THING keep popping up all over the place and make the damn thing like THE SUN. At least they haven't butchered the music. Yet. Still miss the array of counting down numbers, though.

Actually the new countdown videos are one of the best bits. they are very nicely edited together, IMHO.

And it's Helvetica. Not Ariel :)
