New ‘Silicon Graphics’ technology came into use on 13 April 1993 for a relaunch of the main BBC One bulletins, creating a virtual set which appeared to be much larger than it was physically. The relaunch also brought all bulletins into the same style of set with only small changes in colouring, titles and music to differentiate each. A computer generated glass sculpture of the BBC coat of arms was the centrepiece of the programme titles until the largescale corporation rebranding of news services in 1999.

The main presenters were Anna Ford, Peter Sissons, Martyn Lewis, Moira Stuart, Jill Dando, Jennie Bond.
