The BBC has not wavered from their 70’s theme when its comes to the promotion of the I’ve-heard-its-quite-good Life on Mars which started its second and final season last night in the UK.
While the beeb recently relaunched its BBC One idents, they took the ingenious step of having you “tune in” to the BBC of the 1970’s, idents and all, for their broadcast of last nights episode. Check out some of the other promos for Life on Mars here.

I love idents, and have enjoyed testing out a lot of these little flash recreations: http://625.uk.com/TV_LOGOS/flash.htm
This was the ident before the first episode? They really have gotten into the promo. Wondering about the test cards though.
I like the subliminal shot of (I think) Ronnie Barker in there.
BBC did a great job with this one.
BTW, I found another site with the BBC ident recreations in flash: http://www.rp-network.com/downloads/index.html

Very nice surprise! Not 100 per cent there for us font anoraks (the Welsh one was set in Arial, which didnâ€™t exist in 1973), but a good effort from Red Bee Media nonetheless.
I’m an American, but I’ve seen that globe quite a bit in Monty Python. (It’s in reruns on BBC America.)
