Personally, if they are going to do it I just wish they’d do it fully. Currently the main page is one typeface, the next then loads and it’s the new one. Something each time it loads makes me think I’ve some kind of connection issue as they look different.

Things are starting to go full circle in terms of design. Flat and monochrome was once seen as modern but we might be moving back to a more fussy design language. It's like flares coming back into fashion.

I'm hoping flares come back into fashion so I can hide my RPG in an ankle holster.

I've noticed that as well. Also, on the newly formatted pages, does the browser's 'back' button behave differently? If I press back, the page simply reloads itself. I have to press back twice to go back to the home page. Definitely a bug with the Beeb as the back button behaves normally elsewhere on the web.

If there was one defining movement of the 2010s it was hipsterism - music, food, architecture, art, yoga studios, veganism, woke culture - what will be the 2020s bring, a regression to more traditional styles and movements?

Interesting choice of words.
