Idents and Continuity 1969-1974


Welcome to our section about the idents and continuity used on BBC 1 between 1969 and 1974

This was the first colour idents for BBC 1, sister channel BBC 2 had been in colour for two years at that point. The ident itself was a mechanical model filmed in monochrome and the colour added later in the transmission process

 

BBC 1 IDENT - 1969

The was the first colour ident on BBC 1, in these images we can see the mechanical model itself. The model was designed by Murray Andrew and would remain in use up until the mid 1980s with the odd colour change.

The model consisted of a globe which was a ball with the continents painted on it. The globe was lit internally which would cause the paint to lift off the globe and would require regular maintenance to keep it looking correct. Behind the globe was a curved mirror which completed the effect.

The ident was in a box and a camera would point on it, colour was added later in the transmission process
