BBC Look East: 2003-2008

Since 29 September 2003, BBC Look East has been broadcast from its multi-million pound digital regional headquarters in The Forum, in the heart of Norwich.  Titles and presentation were also relaunched to coincide with the move, which also saw the main programme broadcast in 16:9 for the first time — BBC Cambridge continued with cropped 4:3 however, until July 2006.

Titles
BBC Look East for the west of the region continued to be broadcast from their Hills Road studios in Cambridge through the rebrand, until 2009, when they moved into their new digital studios in the northern outskirts of the city. The titles used on the fully-split late bulletin remained the same as those introduced in 2002, reflecting local pics to the west of the region, rather than the Norwich-centric titles of the main programme.

Titles
New titles were introduced on 2 November 2007, for both sub-regions of the programme, featuring generic scenes from across the BBC East region. These were only short-lived however, as the titles were once again updated along with large-scale rebranding of BBC News in April 2008.
