Santa time once again and this year's theme is a stylised "Christmas" logo which doubled as the main festive ident. Starting in an attic full of toys, animation takes over to form the end board. Bernard Newnham designed the sequence. There was no real ceremony to BBC1's startup on Christmas Day. No music, just Andy Cartledge to run through the menu and before CBBC, some wintry film.
