New BBC web site - how good is its usability?

I really like the look of the new BBC web site - here is a sample of the home page. As the review in BrandChannel says, it is full of gestures, swipes, and touch.  Lots of lessons learnt from Apple

The BBC comments: “The beta provides a first glimpse of core design principles that will underpin the reshaped BBC Online, which take into account changing user behaviours including the preference for ‘swiping’ through content – increasingly intuitive given the rise of touch-screen smart phones and tablets.”

Having said I like it I wonder how easy it is going to be to use for older people. I will wait until the full site is up and running and then post a detailed analysis. Dick Stroud
