ITV's Better Homes was a totally forgettable programme that only sticks in my mind because of the Homebase sponsorship.
It did run for a good few years, though - and even spawned a spin-off, Better Gardens.
And no doubt a good few people watched simply because of Carol. This, of course, was during the period when she was absolutely everywhere - detox books, Benecol and Firstplus ads, that other ITV show in which she interviewed celebs, etc etc.
The "Changing Rooms" effect at the time had created a glut of interior decorating programmes. It almost seemed as if every sodding channel had become UK(TV) Style. By the time that Better Homes jumped on the bandwagon, coupled with the then ubiquitousness of Ms Vorderman, it felt like saturation point.
Surprised that The Chart Show hasn't yet been mentioned in this yet... Pepe Jeans was quickly replaced by several years of Twix sponsorship. 'Twix Music Land' was probably my favourite of the different versions. (Examples are 2mins 50 into this if it doesn't automatically jump in.)
Little me loved the "Twix Music Land" sequence - and was disappointed when it, and the theme tune, were replaced in the 1996 revamp.
It's still my favourite Chart Show title sequence today - although I assume the rollercoaster sequence (which I'm a little *too* young to remember watching when it was used) is the most famous.
Surely *any* self-respecting TV pres fan would cite the Twix Music Land titles as a favourite?!
I quite liked the "cacophony of din" that initially accompanied the next set of titles, just because it was so unorthodox. The "proper melody" theme tune which later replaced it on the same visuals came as a huge disappointment, and certainly was nowhere near the league of the long-running Pepe/Twix era theme tune.
The Tizer sponsorship was integrated too, by interrupting the titles with static.
In the Chart Show Intros Megamix video posted by Earlie37, the clip of the Tizer era titles is clearly recorded from a latter-day repeat broadcast on The Vault channel.
Although the actual Tizer sponsorship itself has been edited out, the static that indicated where it occurred (towards the very end of the title sequence) survives.
We each have our own particular prose or way of expressing ourselves, ranging from concise to verbose.
