I think we'll get a repeat of last year's BBC1 Christmas Idents, but with possibly a couple more added. After all, the Christmas Day schedule is likely to be similar so with the exception of Frozen, they can use them again too!
If we only get one life, why does it take several attempts to get it right?

It must be hard for BBC One, trying to come up with something new each year. This is probably the main reason why BBC Two, ITV and Channel just recycle their idents. I wonder if ITV will continue with their 2013 batch?


Well they seemed to manage it pretty much every year since the late 1960s...

This year? Pfft, why bother caring? It'll either be last year's again or some terrible Oneness "concept".

They will not recycle last years idents. BBC always comes up with something new. They have to, as they abandoned BBC Two Christmas idents really. Christmas is important to the BBC, it always has. ITV do not really care, as advertising over the festive season is weak. BBC One will give us something new, I just hope it is good.

Also, is 2017 the only year for the awful Oneness idents?

The bigger concern for the BBC is they've got three hours of primetime in Christmas week to fill having pulled their big Christmas drama from the schedule due to rape allegations against one of it's stars.


Shouldn't be too much of a problem at the moment, it would have been more of an issue if the schedule deadline had already passed. I'm sure they've got enough time to sort out an alternative schedule plan to fill this void.

It's more of an annoyance for the BBC in that this Agatha Christie drama was going to be one of the main highlights of their schedule. Depending on the outcome of these allegations, it's possible it may never get broadcast. But they obviously had no choice other than to remove it from their festive schedule plans. We just have to keep an open mind at this stage- innocent until proved guilty etc.

I don't agree that they should have pulled it. Are we not able to make our own minds up anymore? Blimey, they knew what Jimmy Savile was up to and they still put out Jim'll Fix It every Christmas! Yes, the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" has long gone. The BBC have decided this guy is guilty by acting as if he is. Publicising the pulling of a major TV show because of "allegations". I have run out of patience and compassion to a degree, because some of these "allegations" are so ridiculous that it demeans real abuse. Why didn't these "raped" women go to the police when it happened? Why do they all appear at the same time? I think the BBC should show the programme as our money paid for it and if we choose to not watch it out of protest or disgust, that's up to us. But I suspect millions more will be annoyed that the BBC have taken this extreme "guilty!" attitude. It's odd how the BBC is so enraged about off shore accounts too, yet pays Gary Linekar enough money to enable him to have one.

I suspect though that Ordeal By Innocence will simply be replaced with Little Women. No real problem.

I think it's because the BBC were seen to do nothing about Jimmy Savile that they want to be seen taking action swiftly whenever a scandal seems to be arising. But my problem with that is it almost instantly implies the person in question is guilty without any further investigation, and as Yewtree proved, not all of the claims rang true.

Off topic, but what an absolutely ridiculous view you hold. Moron.
