Friday 24th October 2014 marks the 90th anniversary of the official launch of the BBC in Northern Ireland. From Saturday 18th October, past idents and presentation have been dusted off and polished to mark the event across BBC One and Two Northern Ireland.
A montage of radio and television symbols and idents from BBC Northern Ireland to mark the anniversary.
The 1985 predecessor to the 'virtual globe' was the stunningly beautiful but unfortunately titled 'COW'. The BBC has loved its acronyms over the years, and this was the 'computer-originated world' symbol.
Apparently never broadcast when originally commissioned in 2001, this is the first outing for this version of BBC Two Northern Ireland's 'Causeway' ident that references the Giant's Causeway, County Antrim. The ident seen in 2001 had a different viewing angle and may be seen here at The TV Room (archived).
