New BBC TWO idents
Off The Telly reckon they've taken their lead from the current Channel 4 ones, and it's a fair point, but I think they're distinct enough that it's not really any kind of wholesale filching. And if anything, it's simply more of a continuation of the fine heritage established by the 1991 set (still, for my money, the finest set of channel idents ever created). Indeed, the new colour palette seems a deliberate attempt to evoke the 1991 colour scheme, which is no bad thing. BBC2 have got a tradition of great idents - and that big 2 still looks great in any context - and this new set seems, at first glance, to uphold that, although obviously we'll have to wait until Sunday to get a true sense of them in motion.
They piss all over the current BBC ONE ones, though. Oh, and :
Viewers can also create their own versions - citizen idents - of the new BBC Two look by downloading the 2 template from the channel website - bbc.co.uk/bbctwo.
