Idents and Continuity 1986-1991


Welcome to our section about the idents and continuity used on BBC Two between 1986 and 1991

The look came about as a result of the BBC wanting BBC 2 to appear a bit more upmarket, more highbrow. The striped 2 which had been around in one form or another since the mid 70s would be replaced and in its place was the word TWO. The ident was created by Jeapes who had previously created the map on the titles to the BBC 1 soap EastEnders.

The ident was first on our screens on the 31st March 1986 and stayed with us until 1991 when both BBC 1 and BBC Two were rebranded.

There was also a clock that went with the ident which was mostly used at closedown. The clock featured the same colours of the ident
