Happy New Year 2018
A short feature with a selection of junctions from around the BBC nations and various other channels as they marked the crossover from 2017 to 2018.
BBC One NI (Last 2017) - Christmas 2017
BBC One NI (First 2018) - 2018
The first announcement for 2018 from Northern Ireland, aired shortly before 1am on BBC One and welcoming us into the New Year from the local team. Unlike Wales and Network, NI didn't air the new Drone Racers ident in this first junction instead going with the Night Kayakers ident to mark the return to regular Oneness presentation.
BBC One (Drone Racers) - 2018
With the dawn of the new year, a return to the regular Oneness idents for BBC One as they wish us a Happy New Year in the first announcement. The first ident to air on network being a new one - Drone Racers. An ident which had originally been produced back in Summer 2017, but then held back until the start of the following year.
BBC One Wales (Last 2017) - Christmas 2017
The last link from BBC One Wales for 2017, aired around 11.20pm on New Years Eve, and also marking the last regular use of the Christmas idents. There would be no announcement from Wales post-midnight, with them airing a silent version of Drone Racers before crashing back into the network feed instead.
BBC One Wales (Drone Racers Mistake) - 1/1/2018
A slightly bumpy junction around the first Drone Racers ident on BBC One Wales. After the end of the New Year 2018 programme, an initial trailer is played out by Wales, followed by a clean playout of the new Wales branded Drone Racer ident. After this they crash back in to the network feed partway through the next network trailer, before giving us a brief glimpse of the generic BBC blocks. Start off 2018 as you mean to go on!
BBC One Scotland (Hogmanay Build Up) - Christmas 2017
BBC One Scotland (Last 2017) - Christmas 2017
BBC One Scotland (First 2018) - Christmas 2017
BBC One Scotland (Wild Campers) - 2018
BBC One (First Good Morning) - 2018
Banger Racers was used post-Breakfast to start off the first day of 2018 on BBC One. After welcoming people to the New Year, the scripted reason for the choice of ident was revealed to lead into the New Years Day film. Although the other nations had their own announcements for this junction, they followed the same script from the network.
