BBC2 idents

BBC television idents began in the early 1950s, when the BBC first displayed a logo between programmes to identify its service. As new technology has become available, these devices have evolved from simple still black and white images to the sophisticated full colour short films seen today. With the arrival of digital services in the United Kingdom, and with them many more new channels, branding is perceived by broadcasters to be much more important, meaning that idents need to stand out from the competition. Below are a couple of cool videos I found on YouTube of BBC2 idents throughout the ages, I like the soundtracks to them both, but there's so many songs to choose from, that I'd like to experiment with different choices.
