BBC credits to be enlarged

From Matthew Hemley in The Stage:
Credits on BBC shows are to be enlarged following complaints that a new format rolled out last year makes it difficult to read the names of actors and production staff who have worked on a programme...

A BBC spokesman said: “End credits are commonly used throughout the broadcast industry as a means of giving viewers the information they are searching for at that moment. The new end credit format was rolled out last year and we have been canvassing feedback since then. Some people have said the font is too small to read and we are currently looking to enlarge it.”

    The Guild also has received many complaints about credit squeezing and we've raised the issue consistently with the BBC over the past few months. End credits can sometimes include writers' and/or creators' credits; not to mention others vital to the production. Once again, I'd like to thank the BBC for dealing with our problems so quickly.
