Derby della Capitale: Lazio vs Roma

While the video itself feels like a reading of a Wikipedia page, I actually found out a few things about my favourite Italian club, Roma.

The fans were aggressive and we left after 60 minutes. I'd highly recommend going to see a Serie A game, just not sure I'd be able to cope with the stress of watching a true derby in person.

ITV debuts first of it's 52 new idents

The 'old' ITV idents were really effective, with the colour scheme reflecting the video content behind it. It was versatile and well executed.

These new ones will be interesting with a new one each week but having watched ITV, I can't say I've noticed these idents yet... I have noticed their new menu style though which reminded me of Channel 4's idents that debuted more than 3 years ago:

Here's the new ITV menu for comparison. Maybe not siblings, but it feels like they're from the same family.
