The BBC sure knows how to throw a party, I love these Christmas idents. The BBC One ident may be full of cliches wrapped in Christmas kitsch but its brilliantly executed with great production and I think it works really well.

The BBC Two ident uses a similiar technique to that of the ABC’s ‘Exercise your imagination’ promos. It takes the traditional BBC Two formula to very cool extreme.. happy holidays!

  • Ugh! They sure know how to make a child ugly! I can’t bare BBC1’s idents and this, for me, is just dire! Even if it is decent, I can’t tell since I’m completely and uttely against the idents in protest! Oh when will they change?!

  • I like all the BBC xmas idents although this years is a little less christmassy i think the xmas puddings and the snowflakes were alot more festive compared to this years more charlie and the chocolate factory themed ident!

  • I like the BBC2 one this year. The BBC1’S music sounds like it should be on at halloween. I liked last years better than these.
