The branch featured on an RBS advert a couple of years ago so it could be some form of concept branch.
As promised, a photo. I must have been looking at the branch from a different angle the other day - didn't notice the 'RBS' logo remained too. But still…

The new William Hill that has opened up in Town centre here appears to be using one of N6's BARCOs as part of it's window display. I'm not sure what it actually is, as it isn't a BARCO, but it appears to be an LED screen, which I haven't actually seen turned on yet either, meaning I am yet to see it as anything more than a chunky black cuboid. Looking inside, they also appeared to have a full video wall displaying TV channels and the like, which looked very nice.

I think it's called a "television"

Why do TV Forumers insist on shouting Barco?

Because it's an acronym:

Being Anal about Rotas Could be Outrageous

(It's all I could come up with, sorry..)

I don't know, but I've just learned today (thanks Wikipedia) that the name derives from Belgian American Radio Corporation.

Yes, that Sainsbury's logo/strapline is mentioned in the supermarket thread. They amusingly have to put small print on their ads along the lines of "Live well for less than you thought"

I still don't understand what that small print clarifies. It's more contentious than the tagline alone.
