Channel 4 : Christmas 2017 and 2018
Channel 4 waited quite late into the season before introducing its Christmas idents on Thursday 21st December 2017. Based on the previous year's themes, the idents this year gave greater prominence to the '4' logo. The idents and presentation returned in 2018 - with the idents now sporting a '4' watermark.
