BBC One Christmas idents 2020

I had a look back last night on TV Ark at Christmas idents since the balloons. I know it’s been said many a time but christ, the red curtain year, what were they thinking? That frog ident. What the hell is it?

They poured all the money into the ‘It’s Showtime!’ campaign with Rob Brydon, didn’t they, and the idents themselves were absolutely rubbish.

I’d also suggest, from memory, that 2012 was the first 1st December Christmas ident launch, as the idents were so built into the campaign for the whole Christmas schedule.

I do look back on the 2010 and 2011 idents with real fondness, especially the 2011 ones which were so well linked into the ‘Consider Yourself’ promo, including the variant which was a full play of the trail which then became the ident endboard. I thought it was really good.

Government to suspend Parliament

The suggestion that we cannot have a General Election this year because of Sports Personality of the Year taking place in December is one of the more ridiculous things that I have read.
