Dear oh dear; what a shame if S4C have decided to scrap the clock. I had a feeling it might happen, but hoped we'd still see it for some time yet.
The last I saw of aforementioned clock, was the Xmas version counting up to and past midnight, New Year's Day (was followed by the Anthem accompanied by a short live action 'story' of sorts for the occasion IIRC).
If it's indeed gone, then odd how the Xmas idents followed the new look, yet a specific clock was still seen alongside it.
Also, despite being many years old, I really loved those idents of fire-breathing Dragons from everyday objects, ever since I saw the Standpipe one in action back around 1995.
Now I've seen these new idents in motion and they seem comparatively so poor, don't seem at all Welsh, make no other sense in terms of what they are supposed to represent and are generally very underwhelming, dull, and lacking a strong symbol or theme.
All in all, another disappointment. I don't like the direction most TV pres is heading as of late, with Channel 4 having the only package that consistently impresses. The only good thing I can say about this new S4C lot, is IMO they are better than current ITV1 - but I suppose that's not saying much.
