~ Quest ~

Quest saw a slightly bumpy launch in 2009. Originally planned for launch in May and trailered as such right to the last minute, the channel launch was delayed before eventually going to air in the September of that year. Owned by Discovery Networks, the channel acts as a free to air outlet for all the group's produced content, whilst avoiding directly mentioning the Discovery brand too often. Resulting in a mix of some of their high octane shows such as Mythbusters, alongside some overspill of sports that come as part of their ownership of the Eurosport channel.

Quest (Parachute) - 2009

The launch package for Quest consisted of people performing different exciting activities in their own home. In this one, a woman parachutes into place on the bed in front of the TV. The main ident package, and accompanying yellow arrow logo was to last for the first 5 years of the channel.

Quest (Break) - 2009

A quick flash of the break bumper for Quest from 2009.

Quest (Promo) - 2009

An example of the trailer style for Quest from it's launch year in 2009. With it being Christmas, they like to mention they're not going to be doing that traditional 'Christmas' schedule this year as they just like to do stuff instead. A copout surely even Channel 4 would have been proud of!

Quest (Menu) - 2009

More presentation from Quest in 2009 and in lieu of an ident, this time round there's a rundown menu from the channel to let you know what else is coming up. Would you even realise it was Christmas Eve on the channel too if not told by the CA?

Quest (Driving) - 2017

2017 presentation on Quest is a combination of programme specific idents for some bigger shows, cut together from show footage. Alongside of a series of generic idents for other times, which consist of a series of objects interacting with each other in sequences reminiscent of the famous Honda advert. These had originally been produced a few years earlier for use on Discovery group channels on the continent, before being recycled for UK audiences in 2017 for Quest. This collection features mostly cars and related driving items.

Quest (Construction) - 2017

Various building and construction related items interact with one another in this Quest ident.

Quest (Kitchen) - 2017

Lemons, eggs, various kitchen utensils, and a randomly placed lightbulb feature in this Quest ident.

Quest (Outdoors) - 2017

Lots of camping and outdoor leisure items for this fourth quest ident.

Quest (Sport) - 2017

A completely different style sports ident for Quest, predating the introduction of the generic idents from 2017. This particular version is used to introduce live snooker on the channel, complete with cross-promotion of the Eurosport channel in the announcement, also owned by Discovery.

Quest (Promo) - 2017

An example of the 2017 promo style for Quest, finishing with the channel logo against a yellow endboard.

Quest (Warning) - 2017
