Do you remember that?
It’s good to know that someone out there is preserving history. In this case his name is Dave Jeffery - and the Flash version of the BBC Clock that you see above was reproduced by Dave as part of a BBC commission - the results of which you can see at the BBC I Love TV page on testcards and idents. (The clock that you see above is actually being served from the BBC page.)
Furthermore - you will find a whole host of other Flash animations of TV idents by Dave, plus loads of other material pulled together by a chap called Andrew Wiseman by going to 625.uk.com. If you grew up in the 70’s and 80’s - this site will certainly bring back memories.
My favourites from this great site:
- Remember the ATV Presentation at the end of every ATV programme?
- Remember the London Weekend Television river animation?
- Remember the start of an Open University programme on BBC2?
- Remember the BBC test card with the girl on it when you turned the TV on during the daytime?
But, best of all - remember Mary, Mungo & Midge? I have only vague memories of this kids TV programme - but somebody called “Dave the Wave” it seems, has made it his life’s work to remind everyone how great a kids show it was. They just don’t make them like that any more …Posted by jag at May 18, 2003 02:19 PM
