~ Dave Lister 2009 ~

Following on the back of the successful repeat showings of Red Dwarf on Dave, UKTV took the bold decision to commission a series of new specials in 2009. Being the first episodes of Red Dwarf into production for 10 years following many years of development hell for the series, it was needless to say a heavily promoted big event for such a relatively small channel. To mark the weekend of the first broadcast, Dave produced a specially themed 'Dave Lister' set of branding and idents, with stars of the show providing snippets of invision continuity.

Dave Lister (Promo/Menu)- 2009

An example of some Red Dwarf themed promos/menus from the channel... looking like they were possibly put together during someone's tea break, but then there is a recession going on...


Red Dwarf - 2009

After a 10 year hiatus, in which there were several aborted attempts to either start a movie, or produce a series 9, UKTV commissioned a series of one-off specials entitled Back to Earth, reuniting the cast of Red Dwarf for their first new adventures in a considerably long time. Still on a low budget, but now filmed in widescreen, and HD. Whilst the one of show was met with mixed reviews, the overall success of this led to the commissioning of a complete 10th series by Dave.
