Pot pourri

Ident(ity) parade

By way of a slight return, we’ve swept a few BBC2 Theme Night idents up off the floor of Alan Yentob’s camper van.

A DEF II spiral hat for anybody who can name which nights they were intended to promote…

    Blimey, I thought I’d know quite a lot of these…anyway my paltry effort:

    Top row: No idea, Cops On The Box?

    Middle row: One Day In The ’60s, No idea

    Bottom row: No idea, Star Trek Night?

    No spiral hat for me I fear!

    Top right… Is it Forbidden Weekend?

    Bottom right… Berlin Wall night?

    Top right is the Halloween Night one when they showed Ghostwatch. Middle right is the Shakespeare night one (but I don’t think it was called that) with the witches cauldron from Macbeth. Bottom right is the Mars Night from 1996 (I think). Maybe no spiral hat, perhaps a ‘Rapido’ sticker?

    Ghostwatch was on BBC One not BBC Two…

    I wonder BBC Two in England may bring back those idents in 2016?
