    I got the following email from the LogoFreeTv Campaign, and thought I'd reproduce it here for the benefit of those people who may not receive it, but might choose to take the course of action described:

    I hope I have not gone against Mr Wheeler's wishes by posting this mail on the forum. If I have... oops, sorry.

    About to send, but what is/are DOG(s)?

    I assume they're logos, but why not call 'em logos.

    Genuine question, I just want the Beeb to understand!!!

    DOG's are Digital Onscreen Graphics, they have been known in the trade as this for many years. I think this is the proper term not Logo.
    Logo could just refer to e.g. the BBC showing on the screen but DOGs covers Active Buttons, time and web addresses, etc.


    :cool: Ruby quartz shades.

    I notice the What video & TV Petition has over 2000 signatures now which is pretty impressive.

    I would respectfully ask anyone who has signed it to consider also visiting WWW.logofreeTV.org.uk and if possible add their weight to this campaign also.

    Regards,

    John

    Yep I know, just finished sending the email to the BBC myself.

    It's just the discrepancy in the numbers signing up to the logofreetv campaign compared to the What Video Petition that puzzles me a bit!
