2000 Today

The presentation graphics in use on MEGA during 2000-2001


On Monday November 22nd 1999, two days after its 10th birthday, MEGA Channel introduced a brand new look to all its presentation - most of which is still being used today. The familiar fan-style ident with its blocky typeface of the previous ten years was replaced with a softer style with swirling lines and a rounder typeface.

The blue station ident is used around general programming. The variant here was introduced January 2000.

The red ident, a 1999 original, is used for programmes likely to appeal to women.

At the start of the winter season 2000, MEGA revised the look of its trailer captions and these are the results. It was at that time that the white trailers were introduced.

Note too, that this season also ushered in a new tag-line for the station - 'Rendezvous on MEGA' - and this is incorporated into these captions.

The symbols in the top right corner of the frames indicate the programme's audience classification - details are on the 'MEGA - Current' page.

From the start of the winter season 2000, news and current affairs broadcasts have been preceeded by this 'Informed' ident.

Throughout the 2000-2001 season, the station's theme has been 'Rendezvous on MEGA' and this has been heavily promoted by the tag-line on all captions and by using the following promotional trailer showing life on the other side of the television screen.
There are two versions - the original here, and a second re-edited in a faster-paced manner.
