BBC Programme Credit Sequence
The British Broadcasting Corporation

We believe that this is a poor decision, as it will allow programme makers less artistic license with regard to credit sequences - an area that for many years has show a great range of individuality that added in many cases to the television-watching experience. Shows such as Monty Python and Dead Ringers employ the closing titles in a way useful to the feel of the program, and this helps to detract from the monotony of a more "standardised" title sequence.
Also, we believe that the size decisions regarding closing titles are inappropriate, as they show a blatant disregard for the point of credits - instead of being able to read easily who the participants in a television program were, viewers must instead scrutinise the picture, trying to ignore onscreen trailers and announcements around the titles, which serve only as an irritating distraction.
It is our fear that this will pave the way for more marketing-based programme presentation on the BBC, as opposed to artistically-minded programme presentation.
Our aim is to maintain the situation currently (at the time of writing) in place: The production team for a show should have artistic control over the end credit sequence and the right (excepting for an out-of-vision continuity announcer) to unaltered airing of their credit sequences.
