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.
