Now, I can’t link to the precise second Ken Bruce does this (as I could on the TV Iplayer) or even any particular part of the show, but it’s at 2:20:50.
He calls it the colloquial name of “Digital Onscreen Graphic” when they were originally known as “Digitally-originated graphic”, which is more accurate (can’t people these days handle hypenated words?), but anyway, at least he’s putting in a criticism for it, despite ITV trying to justify it if you email them to complain (they reply with a stock line in bullshit about why they suddenly think it’s necessary after 57 years!)
Sadly, the dimwitted woman who appears with him seems to agree with the logo’s existence (perhaps she has trouble finding ITV? In which case, she should pack up her television set and return it back to the shop from where it was bought). I don’t hear calls from her for a background chant of “Radio 2, Radio 2, Radio 2, Radio 2….” behind Ken Bruce or herself while they’re talking(?)
PS. Happy Birthday to Ken for tomorrow!
