Time for that magical moment on Christmas Eve where the curtains are thrown back and this year's Christmas ident is unveiled! As this was 1991, a menu and music was still the order of the day and in the best BBC tradition, Richard Straker talks us through the day's line-up before playing a short blast of Richard Harvey's "A Christmas Suite". Enjoy the whole sequence here. With the ident revealed it's time to show off the Christmas slides for the first time. Followed by an excellent announcement from Richard Straker!
