BBC TWO : Special Presentation (1)
From time to time, BBC TWO will mark certain programmes or seasons with themed idents and presentation. This selection is from 2007 onwards.
BBC TWOBBC TWO
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.
