From time to time, BBC TWO will mark certain programmes or seasons with themed idents and presentation. This selection is from 2007 onwards.
To mark a season of 'back to nature' programming during May 2008, BBC TWO filmed a series of four new idents to complement the strand. Each ident builds on the 'window on the world' theme of the channel's main ident set, by looking through a '2'-shaped hole in a tree trunk to a woodland feature. The first is of a small waterfall.
