Channel 4 (Promo) - 1997

Dave (Football - Women's World Cup) - 2023

As well as special idents and continuity throughout prime time on Saturday 19th, the 10am and 11am junctions on Sunday 20th August received similar treatment to continue the build up to the Women's World Cup, which was due to kick off at 11am UK time. This made for a rare playout of idents with continuity during daytime hours on Dave.

Latest Additions - 19/08/2023

Following on from the bumper earlier in the week, on Saturday August 19th on the eve of the final, Dave expanded their special presentation to mark the England Women's team making it to the World Cup Final.

Dave (Break - Schitt's Creek) - 2023

To mark the coming of Canadian sitcom 'Schitt's Creek' to Dave from July 17th, UKTV revisited their occasionally seen practice of adapting the channel name to 'David', as part of a phrase referencing one of the characters in the show.

Latest Additions - 09/07/2023

Dave (Channel of the Year Sting) - 2023

Following the awarding of 'Channel of the Year' to Dave in the Broadcast Awards in July 2023, UKTV decided to eschew the habit many channels have followed of crudely slapping the accolade in text over their existing idents or stings. Instead a dedicated short sting in the house style was added into the mix on the channel.

Latest Additions - 06/07/2023

Channel 4 (System) - 2023

Warehouses and elephants are some of the films to feature in this ident.

Channel 4 (6pm Last Junction) - 2023

The final junction with the giant blockman idents aired at 6.30pm into Hollyoaks, leading to a somewhat jarring announcement followed by the obligatory serious content warning.

Channel 4 (6pm Second to Last Junction) - 2023

The full ident set finally rolled out on Channel 4 on June 14th, marking the end of the 'blockman' idents at the same time. Throughout the day, Channel 4 made repeated references to the impending rebrand and the end of the 'giant' idents. The second to last junction into The Simpsons at 6pm on June 14th here.

Latest Additions - 17/06/2023

Channel 4 (The Land) - 2023

The new idents finally launched at 7pm on June 14th with a stunningly visual if somewhat pretentiously narrated extended film. Each consisted of various scenes shown within the cube block of the '4' as a camera pans round to move on to the next scene. In theory these scenes could be mixed together in different orders to create an almost infinite array of ident sequences appropriate to different programmes or junction lengths, however in reality at launch only 5 predefined edits were put together. Burning forests, crashing oceans and global warming feature in this ident.

Latest Additions - 13/06/2023

Carlsberg - 1990

An exciting courtroom location makes up the setting for this Carlsberg advert, one of many playing on the famous "Probably The Best Lager In The World" slogan.... albeit very loosely.

Latest Additions - 05/06/2023

Channel 4 (Pride) - 2023

With the dropping of the 'blocks' animation style, special idents for Channel 4 had to take on a new style too. And inkeeping with the channel's long-running indecisiveness over whether to feature their logo or not, the first such idents featured the square style design, but without any 4 logo present in the foreground (though plenty of room for them to add obligatory hashtags). For the start of Pride Month in June 2023, an updated Pride ident for the channel began airing in this style.

Latest Additions - 29/05/2023

Smarties - 1991

One of several 'Only Smarties Have The Answer' adverts using early CGI from the early 90s. In this version, you're encouraged to apply for some really cool shades. You could get them absolutely free, for only 20p + 8 tokens from buying packs of Smarties. Bargain!

Latest Additions - 24/05/2023

Channel 4 (Menu) - 2023

The piecemeal refresh continued throughout May, with End Credit Promotions and standalone next pointers receiving the refreshed 'colour' look from May 24th 2023. An example of a full screen menu pointer, as used from that date.

Channel 4 - 2023

Channel 4 (Promo) - 2023

Following on from the soft-launched ident and break bumpers in November 2022, in May 2023 further elements of this brand refresh were rolled out. The refreshed promo style, used from May 3rd 2023 and pushing streaming first with the broadcast showings secondary. Wording on promos for other Channel 4 owned channels was updated on the same day.

BBC News Channel (Countdown) - 2023

In April 2023, following a month of 'soft' trials, the BBC News Channel in its original form was replaced by a single channel showing a rebranded version of the international BBC World channel with a small number of UK optouts for large stories. As part of this, both channels were rebranded as 'BBC News' with a clunky rollout of the Chameleon graphics. The same countdown sequences continued to be used just now with refreshed graphics overlaid.

Latest Additions - 23/04/2023

Dave (Earth Day) - 2023 - 2023

To mark Earth Day 2023, UKTV spared no expense putting together special presentation to encourage people to switch off the lights and help reduce their carbon footprint. The Dave logo appears against a plain white background, before changing to a dark background midway through to emphasise watching TV in the dark. Of course, the savings from switching off that 5w LED bulb most people now have versus the savings from switching off the 60w+ TV which would have been showing Dave at the time has had to be glossed over somewhat for commercial reasons...

Latest Additions - 10/04/2023

S4C (Y Swn) - 2023

Following on from S4C's 40th birthday at the end of 2022, in April 2023 a special film Y Sŵn was aired - a film drama about the struggle to found a Welsh Language channel. To mark the occasion, this time round S4C put out special presentation throughout Sunday 9th April day based off their original launch identity from 1982.

Latest Additions - 05/04/2023

BBC Four (Digital Promo) - 2004

One of the many more general digital promos the BBC aired in the early 2000s to promote their digital channels, this time with a particular focus on BBC Four. And in a novel twist, someone has decided using cuddly toy monkeys to advertise digital telly would be a great new idea.

Latest Additions - 31/03/2023
