I'm just glad the fact it uses the old, old logo means we won't see a reairing of the old BBC VHS ident from when I was younger - that music used to haunt me and that bleak music would be the last thing we need at the moment.

How could you not love that?? It's beautiful.

I've never, ever understood the notion that it is somehow scary. I had many videos with it on and it certainly didn't traumatise me as a kid.

I used to have to get my mum to rewind my Mr Blobby and Pingu videos past the BBC logo as I would scream just at the sight of it. My mum confiscated the video in the end... think that was only last week.

It’s the music - it’s incredibly sombre. Combine that with the dark black and you half expect a something equally grave or grim to be announced right after. It has if anything too much gravitas.
It’s hardly a nice little jingle/ident.

100% agree with that music being terrifying. One thing that absolutely chills me to my soul even more than any horror film I've ever seen is the Diana death newsflashes. That one with the female continuity announcer is soul destroying. I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it. Shocked Laughing

Just watched last night’s EastEnders and, bearing in mind it was followed by the PM’s broadcast, I felt the ECVO’s were almost encouraging people to switch OFF rather than stay tuned for an important broadcast. The way the announcer said “head to the BBC Sounds app NOW”!

Very nice to see Forest in use again.
