BBC Arabic TV was launched on March 11th 2008. The channel is publicly funded by British taxpayers through The Foregin Office. It is also the BBC's first publicly-funded international channel free to air to audiences in the Middle East and North Africa. BBC Arabic was originally launched in 1994 as a joint venture with Orbit TV but collapsed in 1996. Today it will have to compete in a very crowded marketplace against other news channels including Al Jazeera, Al Hurra and Al Arabiya

Graphic design for the BBC Arabic Channel is an excellent treatment of the BBC News brand, glassy blocks produced in 3D form the BBC logo, and live action form a globe, all very contemporary. The strap animations also represent the latest trends of Web2.0 glassy, reflective graphics and are brilliantly executed, not too flashy and not too over the top.
