The website is now in Flash. Also, there are now videos of the old BBC Two idents! Plus Smarties Smile

It's a shame they've removed a lot of the content such as the BBC One Balloons and Carlton's hearts. Nice to see the compilation of BBC Two idents though.

Nice to see it doesn't work in firefox, and there isn't a non flash alternative... clever.

All Flash only websites are nasty.

Actually there is.

The link to this page comes up when you have no flash installed.

Even for me in firefox I get the layout and pictures not text, and no option to switch to html...

It's working fine here in Firefox. Is your Flash Player up to date (version 8 is the latest).

Works in FireFox for me.

I do think the site is ghastly and nothing new. Lambie-Nairn is an agency I've gone off recently. The work is okay but it seems to be getting left behind the rest of the design world.

You would think such a high profile organisation would be able to develop their own website. A nose around reveals otherwise. @www did it.

Designers such as LN have the KISS principle - Keep It Simple Stupid.

They also have the SNOG principle too - Sorry NO Graphics

Do they employ the KISS before you DIP principle though?

The BBC ONE balloons are still there.

The video, however, is rather large for what is now 2 minutes of footage...this includes stings amongst the ident snippets.

BBC ONE's finest era -- don't they just put the dancers to shame! And both were from LN...!

Thanks for that Paul - a lovely montage.

Don't know if I'm being a bit thick here though, but I've had a look back on the LN site, and can't see where you've found that link. Just wondering if there are any other gems alongside it. Any chance of a pointer?
