We'd already got rid of the mechanised globe, so it was to be expected Christmas idents would go the same way. Yet BBC1's final model was definitely the best. Two mechanical robins adorned the new BBC1 logo; one on top of it, the other whizzing around. And both flapping their wings with excitement. Fans of the robins were in for huge disappointment at Closedown. The COW was shown as usual, but David Miles' announcement on Christmas night provided some compensation.
