Part of this was in the correct date thread, but I kinda what to branch out further about the old look of GMTV
There does seem to be a lack of clips covering GMTV over this period, but the celb interviews do help fill some of the gaps.

Firstly there was three looks over the 90s: , I just need to double check certain points: I pretty sure I'm in the right area for most of the looks? Are the dates wrong just say.

You can see very clearly what the studio look like once it was revamped in 1993 here:




September 94
to co-inside with Anthea Turner joining the main team, the sofas were updated during this time? as said else where the opening titles from this era now where to be seen, unless there will hidden?
*



This was August OR September 1996
this look appeared? It was on ly the titles and logo that changed.
*

It seems the news wasn't changed at that stage instead keeping the older look

before changing to this.
*

This was New years day 2000 for the millennium?
*

September 2001
Also what was the deal with the EARLY September 2001 rebrand, ie the one with the strange music? which was change back pretty quickly. There used to be clips of this but there have also disappeared.

What I find interesting is the music change. Now, c.2000 the main motif changed from F-G-A-C to G-A-B-C - compare 1:24 in the video below to 1:45. I think that this change happened in the 2000 relaunch? But then go to 4:33. This is blatantly a later era, given the clock design. But these Christmas stings use the old motif. It just strikes me as odd that the sonic logo had changed and that this hadn't been reflected in the Christmas music many many years down the line.

(As someone who grew up in 1990s in Northern Ireland it is rare seeing UTV on GMTV as they were not best pleased when UTV opted out to have their own programme sometime in 1994)

It's a very subtle change though.
