2000 Today

To celebrate the dawn of 2000, ERT (the state owned radio and television broadcaster) joined together with television companies from around the world for '2000 TODAY' - a twenty-six hour television extravaganza following the dawn of the new year in countries around the globe. The idents for the programme were designed in the UK by Lambie Nairn and the British Broadcasting Corporation for use by all the stations taking part in the event. In Greece, ET1 and NET showed them as replacements for their standard break bumpers.

The linking theme throughout all the idents and promotions is a distinctively shaped stone engraved with the year 2000. Here it is seen above the Acropolis, Athens on a caption for 'ERT 2000 Today'.
