[games_access] BBC: One in Five

I love the simplicity of the design. Why did you choose to use the
word "Recorded" instead of "TV" or "Video"? The Comment category name
doesn't make much sense to me as the items within don't seem related
to commenting.

Maybe turn "Recorded" into "Entertainment" and include TV, Music,
Radio, Theater, etc and the last item could be, "You might like..."
Move "Weather" under "Live" Then you'll have two remaining items under
"Comment" that fit the category, "My Messages" and "Contact BBC"

Somewhat off topic, when I was reading about the BBC Reboot intiative
I thought they created a tool to allow people to custom tailor the
website to their needs. Similar to this custom design:
http://sam.kleeman.net/bbc/. You can drag the windows of content
around to your liking. I'd love to see this in games. Being able to
move HUD elements to your preferred position, even resizing them if
you'd like.
