I'm sure some here will be quite pleased to see the old idents but really it's about the least amount of effort put into a Christmas ident set since the sparkles on the ITV celebrity idents.

Agreed Brekkie. The last two Christmas idents from BBC2 (first shown in 2007 and 2011 respectively) were excellent but were each used for FOUR Christmases in a row. Goes to show that they can still do very good festive idents, it's just they tend not to bother making them that often. The yellow 2 snowman sting on the i-player (first shown in 2002) suggests more recycling to be expected this year.

If they can't do something new themselves then why not piggy back the BBC1 look. Sprout Boy is arguably far more BBC2 than BBC1 anyway - it would make more sense in a world where it interacts with a 2!
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Oh "Two, two, two, two, two, two, two, two, two, two, two, two, twoooo..." is the tune and we're getting some old idents. It's a shame BBC2 is the unloved child of the BBC and won't get money for a new ident.
