2008 saw another large overhaul of the five logo. Out went the lowercase 'five' to be replaced by... uppercase Five, set in a new circle device. A new set of surreal idents also went to air at the same time, although these were replaced a short while later. More to come from this era soon, but in the meantime a few sequences from the channel's Christmas presentation.
Five (Ident - Snowflake) - Christmas 2008
Five (Ident - Tree) - Christmas 2008
Five (Pond) - Christmas 2009
Five (News) - Christmas 2009
Five (CSI) - 2010
A special ident appeared once again during the 'FIVE' era. Featuring CSI-lab-style clips, the ident itself saw use before most imported US-crime dramas rather than just CSI itself.
Five (Crime) - 2010
Yet another specially themed ident for use before shows like CSI, featuring the 2008 era Five logo once more. Hey for a time American US crime drama made up the mainstay of their primetime schedule, so it's not a big surprise they had so many special idents for it.
Five (Cricket) - 2010
Another special ident from the FIVE circle era, this time for use before cricket coverage on the channel.
Five (Promo) - 2010
An example of the 2010 promo style during the 'FIVE' era.
