Christmas titles:

<snip>


In the earliest few seconds of these new Christmas titles, there's a subtle few notes in the music (that sound like a glockenspiel or something), that I swear blind are a nod to a certain old Breakfast News theme.

[...]

The subtle phrase of notes that I swear I can hear at the start of these 2013 Christmas titles, sounds to me like a repeating phrase that occurs in that 1990s "vamp" that I'm talking about. Then again, maybe I'm just imagining it... Embarassed


Not sure about that.

The first thing it reminded me of was the first 'BBC Breakfast' theme from 2000; the higher-pitched 'jingle' giving way to the deeper 'boom' in both that theme and these new Christmas titles sound very similar, at least to my untrained ears.
