Christmas 2014 Lookback
BBC1 Returns To Live-Action Christmas Idents

It was an odd year for fans of Christmas idents - out of the major channels, only BBC1 had a set of new idents this year. After a couple of years of stripped-back idents, this year’s were simply magical.

They even brought back some of the classics in their Christmas teaser!
