The programme's titles used an excerpt of The Awakening, a piece of dramatic music composed by Johnny Pearson. The famous chimes of the Westminster Clock Tower — affectionately known as the bongs — separated each headline as it was read out. The early opening title sequences were simplistic; for the first two years, the ITN symbol faded into a wide studio shot showing the two newscasters at the desk, with the caption News at Then, ina new title sequence was introduced: The sequence was amended a year later to feature the new ITN logo at the beginning.

Regulation of the BBC must be effective but not prescriptive and paralysing. Today, the BBC operates under 26 different service licences, running to more than pages - with around statutory and non-statutory quotas and separate conditions.

While a BBC that paints by numbers and ticks any number of boxes may be good news for commercial competitors, it would not deliver the genuine creativity and innovation valued by licence fee payers. A closer look, however, reveals that the last three series of Silent Witness and five of the last six series have all been scheduled in January, whereas the first series of Broadchurch screened in March and Aprilwith the second series being moved to January.
