Sadly we are now in the age of the corporate reusable Christmas ident, but there are a few good new ones this year. After the previous year’s disappointing “Showtime” red curtain ident, the Beeb put a little bit more thought into their cut-back idents with this rather charming wrapping paper motif.
ITV were a little less imaginative, but their live-action Santa scenes passed muster this year...
We definitely preferred ITV4’s festive twist on a classic cop show cliche!
Back to the Beeb, and their sliding block puzzle for BBC3 had some nice touches, but we’re not sure what the bikinis had to do with their line-up!
BBC Northern Ireland pulled out something special this year, dropping in remakes of old classic BBC1 Christmas idents throughout their schedules! What a nice touch, we’re looking forward to what they’re going to do for this year.
