~ BBC One 2017-Present - 'Oneness' ~
For the Christmas 2016 package, the BBC had focussed heavily on 'oneness' as a concept. To celebrate the launch of New Year 2017, we didn't return to the circles package that had been in use previously. Instead the Christmas package was taken further, and a full time set of branding 'celebrating people coming together in oneness' began. In a prime example of placing focus on hiring the person before actually coming up with the concept, acclaimed stills photographer Martin Parr was brought on board to produce each sequence. The end result is that each ident features a bunch of random people usually standing around in a location with little other processing or image stabilisation going on. Starting with only 2 in January 2017, but with new ones being added each month over the course of 2017.

BBC One (Wheelchair Rugby) - 2017
BBC One (Forest) - 2017
Not to be confused with the forest ident from the previous package, the new forest ident appeared within a few weeks of launch, and is a somewhat unique ident very rarely seen on air. Devoid of people, location or oneness branding and instead just showing a camera pointed at trees, the ident is intended for sombre situations where use of one from the regular set could be deemed inappropriate. Before its introduction such a situation arose very shortly into 2017 where both of the launch 'Oneness' idents were unsuitable for a show, resulting in them having to revert back to Kites from 2006. Initially the sombre ident had the sound of birds present, but when it reappeared to introduce news programmes after the London terrorist attack in June 2017 it had been muted.

BBC One (Peter Kay) - 2017
Like when 2 Doctors meet, July 2017 brought the BBC One idents from two totally different time periods clashing together as part of the introduction to a repeat of some of comedian Peter Kay's comedy sketches. A fairly standard airing of Bog Snorkeller starts things off, but with the announcement casually referring to what would follow at the very end of the link.

BBC One (Strictly Come Dancing) - 2017
Two idents were introduced for Strictly Come Dancing in September 2017. Not only do they drop all references to Oneness, the ident is still based upon the circles theme which had been dropped 9 months prior. Whether they were some older rejected concepts that had been dug out for 2017, or whether the memo about the branding change just hadn't quite made it down to the Strictly team, we may never know!
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 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 Scotland (Wild Campers) - 2018
Being on a slightly different schedule due to the Hogmanay celebrations, BBC One Scotland got to air the new Wild Campers ident before network shortly after 1.30am on the 1st January. Another ident that had been filmed some months prior and had even made it onto the BBC Creative case study.
BBC One (Wild Campers) - 2018
Following not long afterwards on network BBC One, the main network version of the Wild Campers Oneness ident.
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.
