BBC TWO : Special Presentation (7)

Afternoon Classics

On Monday 7th October 2013, BBC TWO launched a new block of programming in the afternoons showing classic shows from the 70s and 80s - starting with Are You Being Served?, 'Allo 'Allo and Cagney & Lacey. To bookend the slot, original and recreated presentation elements from BBC TWO's past are used to add to the nostalgic feel.

BBC Northern Ireland's presentation team are doing particularly fine work by showing a greater range of idents than network, especially over Christmas 2013 and when, after a break, the strand resumed in February 2014.

Presentation from the Nations

BBC TWOBBC TWO
Northern Ireland 1974-style ident.

From Dave Jeffery: I drew the map and 2 in Inkscape and then animated it in Blender at 1920x1080 50p, using the Blender Internal renderer. I used a version of the map ident used before a Manchester edition of The Old Grey Whistle Test as a reference.

BBC TWOBBC TWO
Northern Ireland 1979-style ident..

From Dave Jeffery: I drew and animated this ident in Synfig Studio at 1920x1080 50p. I made a mistake on rendering; I didn't take the non-square nature of PAL pixels into account so the ident is more squashed horizontally than it should be. The Northern Ireland caption was added to it by BBC NI.

BBC TWOBBC TWO
Northern Ireland 1986-style ident with two different fades.

From Dave Jeffery: I drew the BBC 2 NI stencil TWO in Inkscape. The TWO fade in and out was animated in Blender (Blender Internal renderer) at 1920x1080 50p, with the grey captions added afterwards in Synfig Studio. I used a static logo BBC 2 NI had used in the BBC2 80s season as reference material.

BBC TWOBBC TWO
BBC Northern Ireland's presentation department along with Dave Jeffery have once again excelled and outshone Network with the re-creation of the 1979 Christmas ident. The first video was shown Monday 9th December 2013, whilst the second aired the next day with a change to the snowflake's rotation.

From Dave Jeffery: I drew the snowflake and caption in Inkscape and then animated them in Blender at 1920x1080 50p using the Blender Internal renderer. Sadly not very accurate as I didn't know what I was doing in Blender! The lens flares were added using the Blender compositor.
