So the hippos didn't survive the great celebrity cull of 2016. As others have posted a new ident set will debut on New Years Day, and Oneness is here to stay. Here's an example of a trailer frontcap and endcap from a clip of Taboo:

I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Better late than never. 6 years after the launch of BBC One HD, we might actually get some HD idents.

I'm not a fan of Oneness but I like the swirl (maintains a bit of continuity), and I'll take anything over the awful falling O we've seen lately.

I'm keeping my expectations in check, in case it's going to be great or poor.

As for Oneness - however tacky it may feel, it's suiting itself as a decent slogan for BBC ONE.

While the circles proved to be a good pres package - it aged to bits. If they're really going, I'll miss seeing the hippos going round in circles and the cape idents' lovely soundtrack (2009 version). It's proven to signify itself as a strong brand for ONE.

I'd also love for BBC TWO to have a pres package that looks up to the excellent 90s idents, but envisions it in a modern take, with a balance of wit and seriousness (aka what the last two pres packages had too much of one of them).

Happy Oneness.

I really hope 2017 will see new BBC One idents. Ten years of one presentation package must be a record for a British channel. If they copy the Christmas look of idents with real people in them, it will just be a rip off of ITV 2013 package.

The 2006 idents has definitely lasted well for something that was meant to last for 4-5 years, I don't feel 'Oneness' will be disappointing if its anything from what I saw on Christmas Day.

Four years would have been way too short for my liking. The cutoff point in my opinion, would be at least 6-7 years, but with DQF and Charter Renewal, the circles were ensured some level of survival.
