First it was all those BBC one dancers, and now the refreshed idents from BBC Four that launched in September 2005, which must have been just after my trip to London, where I posted the old BBC Four idents, which I remain incredibly fond of.
I don’t know much about BBC Four, except for its reputation for being “intelligent”, and that it aired The Thick of It which I enjoyed, and where the mangled excuse for this posts header comes from (oh, and the shows being remade in the US by Mitch Hurwirtz).
BBC Four relaunched their idents on September 10 last year, I like the idea, but I really was in love with the old ones, there was just something very appropriate about them.

 BBC Three, Four   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Barwise suggests that the BBC broaden the programming approach at BBC Three to include those outside of the 25-34 demographic.
BBC Four also needs a wider programming ethic, Barwise said, noting that the channel "should be more selective about showing arts and other programs which virtually no-one watches." The channel’s news program The World should be dropped, Barwise said, in favor of other factual shows.
Both BBC Three and BBC Four should be reclassified as mainstream mixed-genre channels, the reviews says.

 BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Four-winged dinos from China
Recently discovered fossils of feathered dinosaurs with four wings are raising new questions about the origins of flight.
The turkey-sized creatures probably lived in the trees about 130 million years ago and used their wings and long tail to glide from branch-to-branch.
The discovery of the four-winged fossils - cousins of the previously described Microraptor - is unlikely to be the end of the story.

 - Ashton Centenary on BBC Four
BBC THREE is on track to raise more than the odd British eyebrow when it takes over one of Britain's busiest railway stations to bring live opera directly to commuters and the BBC THREE audience.
Adding their voices to the excitement, selected members of the public will be sent a text message on the day of the live broadcast asking them to form a 'flashmob' (a spontaneous gathering, organised secretly by email or text message and subject to meticulous timing) and join in.
It would be really special if the BBC could somehow show some of the archive material, such as the excellent Omnibus made for the Ashton obituary, or the films of Enigma Variations and Month in the Country, to mention just a tiny proportion.

Bear in mind, that like all of the BBC channel / station sites there isn't content made for every programme - it would be too expensive in our current set-up.
