BBC Scotland

BBC Scotland launched on February 24th 2019. Replacing space previously used by BBC Two Scotland, the channel was designed to show programmes from a Scottish perspective during peak hours, with simulcast BBC Two shows during daytime hours. One of the flagship shows for the channel was a daily 9pm news bulletin, bringing the national and international news from a Scottish perspective.

BBC Scotland (Launch) - 2019

After playing a short loop of previews and news in the week running up, for the final 3 minutes before the channel launch at 7pm on February 24th, the new BBC Scotland channel switched to a countdown. Using the same bright graphical style which had been devised for the channel's overall presentation.


BBC Scotland (Street) - 2019

Idents for the new BBC Scotland channel consist of a glassy S shape, which changes colour depending upon events in the surrounding scene. Here lights being cast turn the logo blue. First aired shortly after 7pm on launch night.


BBC Scotland (Butterflies) - 2019

Purple butterflies hit the glassy logo, changing it to purple for this BBC Scotland ident, first used into the 7.30 junction on launch night.


BBC Scotland (Rain) - 2019

Rain drops falling turn the glassy logo a bright shade of pink for this BBC Scotland ident. First used into the 8.30pm junction on launch night.


BBC Scotland (Rain) - 2019

A second version of the Rain ident, this time with the droplets turning the glass logo a bluey-green rather than pink. First aired 3.15pm on February 25th.


BBC Scotland (Birds) - 2019

For the fourth BBC Scotland ident, birds fly past the glassy logo turning it a shimmering white colour. First aired at 10.30pm on launch night.


BBC Scotland (ECP) - 2019

The ECP style for the channel follows the same house style as others from the BBC just this time in purple, aiding cross promotion on BBC One Scotland.


BBC Scotland (Next) - 2019

Next slides for BBC Scotland make use of bold background colours with the stylised logo for the channel falling into place. A pink version here, aired on launch night, and showing both next and later shows.


BBC Scotland (Next) - 2019

Another next slide for the channel, this time using a purple background colour.


BBC Scotland (Promo) - 2019

The promo style for the new BBC Scotland channel once again makes use of a variety of bold colours, alongside textual elements promoting the channel numbers. Seen here promoting Jamie Genevieve #Unfiltered.


BBC Scotland (The Nine Promo) - 2019

One of the heavily promoted features of the new channel was a flagship Scottish news programme at 9pm known as 'The Nine'. With no programme airing on the first night due to the launch being on a Sunday, a short 90 second look ahead to what to expect from the new show was aired instead, and showing the very different style they would have to the rest of the BBC News output.


BBC Scotland (The Seven) - 2019

From the 7pm junction on the first weeknight of the new channel, The Seven is essentially a rundown of headlines that will feature on the upcoming 9pm bulletin. Introduced by continuity over a clock which is overlaid augmented-reality style onto the studio.


BBC Scotland (The Nine) - 2019

The opening to the first ever edition of The Nine, from February 25th 2019. Introduced once again by a countdown clock overlaid onto the studio. What better way to really try and hammer home the fact you're for the people, honest 100% truth there guv'nor, than by including endless photos of people for the opening sequence too?
