10pm BBC Radio station branding on Twitter
As reported to us yesterday by Twitter user @LyricWest2, national BBC Radio stations have been updating their Twitter profiles with their new logos.
Here’s how things look this evening (exactly the same as when this was flagged to us yesterday evening):
We can see here that BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 4 Extra and BBC Radio 5 Live are yet to update their respective profiles to the new BBC Reith branding.
The individual feeds are also carrying a mishmash of branding. Examples:
And thanks to Twitter user @JoshxReid for drawing our attention to various new presenter/programme images that are being added to the BBC Sounds website today, that tie in with the new radio branding.

11pm Not much in the way of St Patrick-related presentation this year
Not much in the way of special presentation for St Patrick’s Day on RTÉ One and RTÉ 2 this year. And nothing from BBC One Northern Ireland and BBC Two Northern Ireland either. But TG 4 saved the day.

11pm Channel 5 discontinues use of Ukrainian ident
Channel 5 this morning resumed use of its standard set of idents.
On 5th March, we first reported that Channel 5 had started using an ident featuring the colours of the Ukrainian flag. It quickly became clear that this ident was being played in all junctions. And this continued to be the case until the early hours of this morning.
The Ukrainian ident was first spotted by The Ident Gallery on 5th March. We are unable to confirm if it was in use prior to this date.
