[00:00:00] PROGRAMME: Ken Cooper signs off at the end of an edition of Look North and hands over to the networked Nationwide programme.

[00:00:05] PROGRAMME: the title sequence starts off with a form-up of the familiar ‘NW’ logo. We then see lots of ‘NW’ logo scrolling horizontally and vertically in turn. Most of the logos are coloured red but some are a cream colour.

We zoom out and see that these ‘NW’ logos are sitting within a map of the UK and that the cream-coloured logos are positioned at the BBC regional centres across the country – highlighting the input from the regional centres into the programme.
