BBC Parliament unveils a fresh new look

BBC Parliament
BBC Parliament's new graphics

BBC Parliament has a new look, with refreshed graphics and channel idents.

The channel audience has doubled since BBC Parliament became available in full-screen on Freeview in 2006 and it now reaches 1.4 million viewers a month - 480,000 a week.

Channel Controller Peter Knowles said: "I'm sure our growing audience will enjoy our new look and continue to explore the wide range of political coverage and programming on the channel.

"Our round-the-clock broadcasting of Parliament, by digital terrestrial, cable, satellite and the web is vital to ensure we have an informed democracy."

BBC Parliament was launched in 1998 and had its last 'refresh' seven years ago.

The new look is part of a process started in 2008 to unify BBC News output across TV, radio and the internet with a consistent and recognisable appearance.
