Didn't channel 4 show Worzel Gummage for a while? If so, I'd have then expected no front cap on the show.
Did any ITV company have a film version of their ident, for programmes made on celluloid? TVS did have a film version of their 1982 ident, and I think Granada was another.
Pre 1989 most of the idents were native film anyway ? The ones that were native video/CGI were TSW, TVS, that monstrosity from UTV up thread, YTV's and that's about it I think ? What about HTV's newer one, (not the blue and white TV aerial one ?)
I guess there's a difference between an ident being originally shot on film, and that ident being TX-ed from film or spliced onto the beginning of a film programme telecined live? I'd have been surprised if there were a TK dedicated to separately playing the idents?
Did Southern change to running their film-idents through a video 'synthesiser' (i.e. a keyer with two matte generators - like the BBC One Blue and Yellow globe?) to make it cleaner - or was it always native film?
I wonder what the split was between shows shot, edited AND TX-ed from film and those either edited on VT
, or transferred to VT prior to TX and played out from VT?
