BBC Two NI (60 Years) - 2024

To mark 60 years of BBC Two on 20th April 2024, BBC Two dug out a collection of old idents from across the years once more. While both network and Wales used generically branded 'BBC' versions, presentation in BBC Two Northern Ireland pulled out a few more stops to use locally branded Northern Ireland versions instead, albeit recreations made by Dave Jeffery for their Afternoon Classics strand a few years earlier rather than originals. One such NI ident seen here leading into a 60th music special on the channel, complete with more shots of old idents in the opening sequence.

BBC Four (12.20am NYD) - New Year 2023/2024

With BBC Four's ever decreasing budget and changed remit as a 'repeats' channel, the continuity links for the new year were somewhat more subdued too compared to BBC Three.

BBC One Scotland (8.15pm NYE) - New Year 2023/2024

As usual, BBC One Scotland were heavily opted out of the network schedule to run their own Hogmanay programming instead. This also meant a lot of junctions to mark the occasion. The build up is already under way in the 8.15pm junction here.
