Channel 5 (Dark Green) - 2020

Barely a month into the new look, and a second broadcast award win saw a re-edit to the ident set for Channel 5. With no expense spared, two different sets of text now animate on and off the idents, albeit in a somewhat tidier manner than before. A dark green example here.

Latest Additions - 27/03/2020

Hammerite - 1992

BBC News (Late) - 1992

The BBC Nine O' Clock... ish... news from 1992. Although taken from a NICAM recording so with much clearer audio, stereo facilities don't appear to have filtered through to the news by early 1992.

Latest Additions - 21/03/2020

HTV (Next) - 1999

BBC News Channel (Countdown) - 2020

A number-free version of the BBC News countdown. Featuring all the same footage just usually played out in a longer sequence and without the numerical countdown, this usually appears as a holding device to fill gaps where the news may not hit an exact top of the hour. Most commonly this is the case during specials simulcast with BBC One/Two. Here Simon McCoy introduces a special update on Coronavirus in March 2020.

Latest Additions - 17/03/2020

Diet Coke - 1995

One of the most famous Diet Coke adverts from 1995. A group of women take a 'Diet Coke Break' every day at 11.30 so that they can watch a workman remove his shirt.

Look North - 2000

Latest Additions - 12/03/2020

Sky - 1990

Still fresh from the BSkyB merger earlier that month, Sky promote their subscription service with an advert for The World Masters snooker. Given what a killer part sport would play for the broadcaster in the following years, it's hard to remember a time where it was almost more of afterthought to their movies service.

Latest Additions - 11/03/2020

ITN (Evening News) - 1995

The Evening News from ITN, from 1995. Gone are the grand shots of the headquarter building or atrium in favour of a much more understated zoomed in shot of the studio itself.

Latest Additions - 08/03/2020

Little Chef - 1995

Better times for the Little Chef chain in the mid-90s, as it was still a well known force in the service station market. Via various buyouts and mergers, the chain grew throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s, even ending up a part of the Granada empire in the late 90s. However the 2000s were less kind. With the chain failing to modernise and losing the interest of their family audience, store numbers contracted and the group fell into administration more than once. Even a last ditch attempt to revive affairs with Heston Blumenthal wasn't enough, with the last remnants of the original chain disappearing in 2018.

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.
