Watch 60 Years Of Hypnotic BBC One Idents
The Beeb has had many faces: looking at how its idents have changed over six decades is a trip down memory lane.
Idents, the animations that gets shown on TV while the continuity announcer tells you what's coming up, have come a long way.
Thankfully, the BBC has been delving into the archives to show us how things used to be.
Things looked fairly low tech from 1953 to 1961, but these graphics were groundbreaking for their time.
1963 saw the introduction of the famous spinning globe.
Which went well with the funky italicised logo in 1966.
And from 1969, in COLOUR!
Did you know the early idents were just a camera pointed at a physical object?
The 1970s saw even more colour.
Remember this one from the late 1980s? Possibly while waiting for Neighbours to come on?
For the most of then 1990s we gazed at this, possibly while waiting for Noel's House Party.
Then there was the famous hot air balloon. But all is not what it seems.
The 2000s saw idents featuring people doing things, such as Brazilian dance/martial art capoeira.
And burly rugby players doing the haka, a Maori war dance performed by New Zealand's All Blacks.
This ident featured Paralympic wheelchair basketball star-turned TV presenter Ade Adepitan.
This cool Bollywood-style dance was a nod to Britain's racial diversity.
And to the present day where we can still see this moon...
These hypnotic bikers...
And these wonderful hippos.
