Please, please, get rid of the channel logo (I believe it's called a "DOG" - how appropriate) in drama programmes. It is amazingly irritating to try to watch a tense - or romantic - or exciting scene, and be repeatedly distracted by "BBC THREE BRAND NEW" or some similar inanity in the corner of the screen. I understand that BBC output requires branding - but surely this can be done in the opening, the title sequence, or the end credits? There's no need to shout the channel name continuously - every digital TV I've seen displays the channel name when switching to a new channel, and also usually with a "channel info" or "programme guide" button. Please, lose the annoying and unnecessary logos.
