Hello all. Long time lurker here making a leap. I'm curious about the one-time commonality, or lack thereof, of moving endcaps. Not in the sense of them being animated themselves but of them being integrated into the end of the show and the transition being animated rather than a simple cut or fade. Asking because I've seen this a few times specifically on old episodes of You've Been Framed

Here at 26:53 Granada flies through space before filling the screen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuyPWykcANw

In this one at 27:13 it slides much faster down the screen and bounces https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqmy-CiE-KA


Granada guillotine, anyone?

ITN relaunched with one a few years back and were smacked down by both ITV and C4 pres for breaking the guidelines.

Also that 8 bit Central one is amazing <3

Wasn't that because of the "Right content, right now" slogan rather than the animation?

On the kids show Pardon my Genie the Thames front cap would shake in line with the opening music which would begin with a gong being struck. Plus there wad the famous Just William opening which would break into the end of the LWT ident.
