Genius. I bet they've been trying to find a way to do that since CBBC and Radio Manchester both moved into Salford.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Any chance of someone putting it online?


I'm just uploading it to YouTube now.



Thanks for that! I think Iain might be a fan of the old days*, it was when he was on that they did the 25th birthday celebrations a year or so.

*despite being too young to remember them!

I haven't seen their Set since Christmas presentation started, and its looking lovely. The background music reminds me of early noughties Christmas CITV for some reason.

I know that they've amended the endings in the past couple of years, but I have seen the Christmas ident featuring Caroline Flack about to swing at the Sam & Mark golf balls. Although Sam & Mark are still on the channel, Caroline left years ago.

What was that hi-de-hi ending sequence all about? Fantastically observed and put together but can't imagine the average 9 year old knowing what the hell it was all about. Love it!

One of the clips in the often repeated 'montage' seems to feature some sort of 1970s/1980s Coronation Street type sketch, so it's not the first time.

That was great. Just how many nostalgic references could Andy fit in? Definitely one for the older viewers "who's Willy Fog?" indeed - shocking!

Loved them picking up on the 'Children's BBC' reference too Laughing

Yep indeed! Although funnily enough they were already referring to it informally as "CBBC" as early as 1989 - if you look in the background of the green/gold ident from that year it says "CBBC" many times in tiny letters.

There was a feature on Blue Peter yesterday about the tenth anniversary of the CBBC channel (which is this Saturday), and the stars that have been launched out of it (although some were a bit tenuous - Matt Baker and Angellia Bell were on CBBC for 2-3 years before the launch).

Interesting piece though with lots of old clips. Repeated BBC1 this aft or watch here http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b01c15tt/?t=4m20s

Gosh, I never thought it was 10 years already. It really was fantastic at it's launch and even today the CBBC bugs look better than the current logo. Laughing

I think the bugs worked better on CBeeBies (which is proven seeing as they still exist today). The strange green blob was probably the low point for presentation but I really like the current brand.

Still prefer the black and yellow era though!
