I just found this while looking for the ident at the end of American Dad!, and thought it was pretty neat that someone made a wiki just for ending idents. They even rate them by scare factor! I think it's mostly American idents, however :)

Some of you may have seen this clip before, but if not, I thought I'd draw your attention to it as it's quite a gem. Not only do we have the first appearance of this particular variation of the BBC1 mirror globe ident/font combination *and* a snippet of Moira Stuart's first TV news bulletin, the music on this clip is an absolute winner. It sounds to me like Wendy Carlos-can anyone confirm or deny this?

Enjoy! )

Classic idents on t-shirts. And yes, I've bought one.

Ooh! A nice little bit of archive TV Pres on ITV just there. I was sitting writing an email when my ears suddenly picked up on the jingle from Tyne Tees' 1959 ident coming from the next room. Lo and behold, I was right. It turns out they'd dug out a load of old Tyne Tees equipment and idents for the Yorkshire programme The Royal. Whereas it was lovely to see, there are obviously a few obsessive details I simply have to pick up on:-

1) Why would Tyne Tees be covering a hospital in Whitby? As I understand it, Whitby is now officially a Tyne Tees broadcast area covered by the Bilsdale transmitter. Before the transmitter swap in 1974, however, it was allocated to Yorkshire Television, hence in the 60s timeframe in which The Royal is set, Whitby would still be a Yorkshire Television location.

2) It was a Black and White programme they were supposed to be filming, yet the music from Tyne Tees' colour ident of 1969 could quite clearly be heard going into an ad break.

3) How come there wasn't even a 'with thanks to Tyne Tees Television' note on the end credits! =:\

ITV2 had it's relaunch this morning. New idents, new trailers, new Dog and a new Website (about bloody time). Just a shame it's the same old schedule. The new idents are strange, mainly because they don't feel all that new. They're fully computer generated in 3D, and the background to them is an empty black. I tend to think it's a style almost reminiscent of the good old idents on most stations in the late 80s/early 90s (especially Channel 4 and Central). You know, that time when they'd just found they *could* create 3D graphics with computers, yet those computers weren't as capable of producing the fancy backgrounds. =:D *Suddenly feels all fuzzy*

Images and video are online at The TV Room. Wish I was as efficient in updating my site as Mike is. =;)
