Nice looking 80's clock before Channel 4 news.

Also to reply to my own post, I'm VCRing all the Idents today as I've managed to plug it in to the TIVO somehow.

The clock before the news was an unexpected surprise!

1982 style menu just after Channel 4 News without any programme images.

The fact that the clock ticked on past 00 makes me wonder if it's actually a live clock rather than a pre-rendered video?

Are they going to replace commercial breaks with four score like they did in the early days? That’ll make a certain someone happy!
AndrewPSSP, Anglialad and Sh1ruba gave kudos

The recreated clock and menu, as they were aired around the lunchtime news.

It's not.
If you watch the video back on the second page of the thread, you'll see the clocks ticking up to the start time of the two Channel 4 news broadcasts today, and both have a 5 second overruns after the clock ticks to the scheduled start time of both.

What agenda? That their old logo and idents are fantastic compared to what we have now? If so, then I'd have to agree!


Considering the content of the drama the idents are promoting, I think we know exactly why these people are moaning. Though outside of equality for everyone regardless of sexual orientation, I don't know what the 'LGBT-agenda' is even supposed to mean.

Excuse me for asking but are these idents new or have they been previously used?

As far as I know, they were only used on the original trailers during the 80's, but not been used since.

Yes, nearly 40 years ago.
