Channel 5 2020-Present

On Wednesday 26th February Channel 5 refreshed their presentation. Keeping the same logo that had been introduced with the previous redesign 4 years earlier, but introducing a new entirely graphical set of idents and other presentational elements. This also marked the return of the numeral to the idents themselves.

Channel 5 (Pink) - 2020

On 26th February 2020, Channel 5 introduced a refreshed look to their presentation. Keeping the same logo, but ditching the vague logo-less people idents in favour of a simpler set of coloured graphical idents, set in colours possibly intended to be a subtle throwback to their original launch colourscheme. Here a pink version, complete with their 'Channel of the Year' text overlaid. Two animations existed in each colour for the initial launch, with subtle audio variants existing for both.

Channel 5 (Neighbours) - 2022

In 2022, Channel 5 announced they would not be renewing their contract for the long-running Aussie Soap Neighbours. With the soap being heavily dependent on a UK partner and no one else stepping up, it was announced the soap would finally end after 37 years in July of that year. In the week leading to the special final episode airing in the UK complete with a list of cameo characters returning, Channel 5 created some special pres with an ident showing the 5 logo formed from a Ramsey-Street-Style set of houses.

Christmas 2020

Channel 5 (Dark Green) - Christmas 2020

Channel 5 kicked off their festive presentation for the year on December 1st 2020, featuring a similar graphical style to their regular idents, just with additional festive stencil effects and revised music. This same package would return annually from this point on, being reused in Christmas 2021 and Christmas 2022, and marked a move away from a new festive set each year.

Channel 5 (Light Green) - Christmas 2020

Inkeeping with the regular idents for the channel, the festive ident for 2020 is rendered out in different colours. Here the lighter green variant.

The more serious 'black' ident for Channel 5 also saw a festive version, albeit toned down over the others. The soundtrack remains non-festive and all the smaller festive graphics on the segments have been removed. Indeed the only change for the season is to add some slight sparkles to the final '5' state.

Channel 5 (Break - Dark Teal) - Christmas 2020

Similar to the regular idents, Christmas 2020 break bumpers on Channel 5 feature shorter shots of all the main idents set in different colours with music. Here a dark teal variant. The minor audio glitches were present on C5 transmission this day.
