Drama (Summer Evenings Promo) - 2019

Special presentation was introduced on Drama for Summer 2019 to mark a special 'Summer Evenings' season starting on 15th July. This was in a similar vein to what they'd done the previous summer, except no longer just for weekends (and tucked away in obscure morning junctions).

From 6am on 15th July, work from 121.Collective made up the week's ITV Creates piece, although a preview had been inadvertently aired before the local Granada News in the previous week. This time various reclaimed materials make up the ITV logo.

BBC World News (Countdown) - 2019

The move to New Broadcasting House in 2013 brought with it a refresh to the countdown sequences for the channel as everything moved to HD equipment. The red swooshing lines were replaced with more complicated ones to symbolise the availability of the BBC's news across many devices, before finishing on shots of NBH. Since then, clips in the countdown have been updated or replaced as needed at regular intervals. Starting at 30 seconds here.

BBC World News (Headlines) - 2019

Here one of several special idents for the channel used to introduce standalone shows, which reference a particular genre - in this case Sport.

BBC World News (Headlines) - 2009

The 2009 top of the hour headline sequence for the BBC World News channel. Presented here by the late Komla Dumor, who passed away suddenly in 2014, and has since lent his name to the annual Komla Dumor Award from the BBC to bring African journalism talent to the screens.

More breakfiller material for BBC World News in 2009, here showing what is coming up on the channel, complete with local timezones.

BBC World News (Breakfiller - Clocks) - 2009

Due to not being licence-fee-funded, the BBC World News Channel has gaps included for commercial advertising. This is inserted in local markets, with the underlying feed being filled with material from London. Although these days this is normally just channel trailers, in days of past special breakfiller material used to be available. This could often be seen when a local broadcast had not sold any advertising to sit over the top. Here a breakfiller sequence from 2009 features world clocks (not clooks).

BBC World News (Countdown) - 2009

Another countdown sequence from 2009 on the BBC World News Channel.

BBC World News (Countdown) - 2009

The sequence comes in here at 17 seconds onscreen, although similar to the domestic channel at the time, the countdown reaches zero about 3 seconds before the music finishes, meaning it's actually a 20 second countdown. This was used, albeit with tweaks to the actual clips, up until the move to New Broadcasting House in 2013.

BBC World News (Ident) - 2009

A short ident for the World News channel with continuity, usually used to introduce standalone shows outside the rolling news coverage on the channel.

CITV (Town) - 1997

In late 1996/early 1997, the presentation set was refreshed with a new set of sequences referred to as 'CITV town'. A collection of paper-maché models filmed in a stop-frame animation style, initially using a contemporary town, although later switching to a medieval themed one. This would be the final 'out of vision' presentation to feature on the channel for a while.

ITV (Year of Promise Promo) - 2000

A trailer for ITV's Year of Promise, broadcast early in 2000. Year of Promise was ITV's way of celebrating the Millennium with the idea being to encourage people to make lasting pledges of changes they would make or things they would do that could improve things for others. With a backing from a wide range of companies, ITV made a big push for the campaign initially. However whilst well-meaning, the idea ultimately flopped, with the public not really understanding the idea and instead mistaking it as just another charity telethon fundraiser. The campaign was downplayed quite quickly by ITV as 2000 went on, and very few of the 'permanent monuments' that were planned to be erected around the country survive today.

Latest Additions - 03/07/2019

HTV (Break) - 2000

HTV received its own version of the 'splash' hearts break bumper, as part of the second generic look for the network. Unlike some regions which only contained the 'ITV' name, HTV remains prominently featured here. These didn't appear on the channel until the main heart idents also launched, in contrast to some regions which received them a year earlier.

HTV (NPU Promo - Year of Promise) - 2000

To highlight ITV's 'Year of Promise' in 2000, specially branded endboards were added to the end of every trailer supplied by the NPU in London. With the flop of the whole Year of Promise project on the network these were to be shortlived, reverting to regular branded ITV endboards by the summer. HTV continued to overlay their logo in the top left throughout this era, but left the network endboards intact.

Latest Additions - 02/07/2019

BBC News (Weekend) - 2000

A BBC1 bulletin dating from 2000 during the yellow 'thunderclap' era.

Headlines include Tony Blair's 'slight policy shift but not a U-Turn' on GM Crops and flooding in Mozambique.

Teletext on 4 (Midlands) - 20/2/1994

A 1994 service from Teletext Ltd, still under the 'Teletext on 4' branding at this point. Officially it's from the Midlands region, although the importance of the regional service on 4 was less prominent than on 3, mainly affecting things like show and cinema listings. The Winter Olympics are in full swing at this point, so a lot of pages are dedicated to this. Meanwhile Digitiser is taking a look at Amiga Public Domain software, and full motion interactive movies on the Mega CD. In the 300s, the Intelfax-produced Ancillary service '4-Tel' for Channel 4 can also be found, providing important backup information for shows on the channel.
