Welcome to our section about the idents and continuity used on BBC 2 between 1979 and 1986
The dual striped ident replaced the previous blue one with a orange and black colour scheme. This look was the first electronically generated TV symbol in the UK, there was a clock that came with it however this remained at first a mechanical model, only later being replaced with an electronically generated one.
Originally the ident had a fanefare that would sometimes acompany the striped-2. It was removed around 1983
