I cant really say much for it, thankgood these test were thrown in the bin.

25 years ago today, on 16 February 1991, BBC1 unveiled its new ident, known as the “virtual globe” which remained until October 1997. On the same day, BBC2 began an era of “2” idents which continues to this very day.


Is the next post dreaded?

The funny thing about it is that it was probably made on high-end equipment at the time, but now looks like something a decent mocker could do at home.


Yes, it's almost as if someone has created a mock, run it through some editing software effects to make it look old and then passed it off as the real thing...

No I'm pretty sure it's real. There was a video that appeared a few months ago on YouTube with the same unused BBC1 ident, but it was recorded off a TV screen I seem to remember. The TV Museum channel uploads broadcast quality clips such as this digital widescreen (and clearly broadcast quality) clip from 1999 so I think it's safe to say they have some kind of access to an archive.
