BBC Wales news gets a facelift

The news on BBC Wales is receiving a new look as the service modernises its appearance.
The makeover for the Wales Today programmes includes a new set, opening titles and theme music.
"The changes will create a more integrated feel across all the BBC's news services," said BBC Wales Controller Geraint Talfan Davies.
"The programmes will each retain their own distinctive identity, titles, colours and sense of place - but within an overall framework which gives viewers instant recognition that they are watching news from the BBC."
The new-look set will also be used by Wales on Saturday, BBC Choice Wales and Newyddion and Ffeil, produced for S4C.
Aled Eirug, Head of News and Current Affairs at BBC Wales said viewers will see a new look for the national programme.
"The one thing that won't be changing is the quality of our journalism," he said.
BBC Choice Wales viewers will also be able to see an extra thirty-minute news programme at 10pm. The "Newsnight" programme on BBC2 Wales will also feature a six-minute update on the day's news from Wales at 11pm.
Other BBC regions are also undergoing changes to their appearance in line with a new BBC image.
