BBC One’s Last Dance
After four years and 43,000 sightings it was the last waltz for BBC One's controversial dance idents. But would their passing be marked in any way? What happened at closedown at 1:10am on Friday 06 October could not have been more different to the balloon's non-farewell in 2002… In place of the usual back-to-back programme trails was a three-minute compilation of all the dancers (apart from Haka), ending with the rarely-seen Ballet. It's at this point announcer Phil Vowels comes in and bids a dignified farewell to the movers and strutters. Unpopular as they were, this excellent tribute actually makes you sorry to see the dancers go.
