BBC1 Christmas Ident – First Showing
For 1983, BBC1 modified last year's snowflake. There were just six holographic branches which gave a great effect. And what fun Pres had with it; on one occasion David Allan forgot to start the model when introducing Play School, and a "subtitles" version saw the legend CEEFAX 170 sandwiched between the bottom spines. There was an extra surprise at closedown – BBC1's first Christmas clock in seven years! It only appeared at the end of the day though, the regular clock introduced the news.
