BBC One Ident – Penguins
So popular were the penguins over Christmas that they made a surprise return, minus the festive adornments, on Tuesday 05 February just before EastEnders. "The penguins are back on BBC One", proclaimed announcer Delroy Haines. But was the re-introduction of Penguins all-year-round a reaction to the ident's popularity or was it planned all along? It's unclear from comparing the two versions whether or not the Christmas tree in the original was added in post production, or airbrushed out of the new version.
