Channel 4 (It's a Sin - Ident 1) - 2021
On January 22nd 2021, Channel 4 decided to throw back the channel presentation for the whole day to the 80s to build up to the start of their new series 'It's a Sin'. With a collection of old pres, featuring many idents made up from repurposed trailer graphics, as well as recreations of other elements to look like the style of the era put out across the channel all day. The first ident for the day aired at 5.50am on January 22nd rather appropriately into Countdown (their first show back in 1982). With them choosing not to just start with the usual Fourscore blocks, it already showed this was going to be a bit of a special day.
