Such was the 2's popularity that most of the 1991 idents survived a major rebranding exercise at the BBC on 4th October 1997. They were joined by some new additions at that point, and then a further set followed on New Year's Day 2000.
After a decade on air, these idents were finally retired on 19th November 2001, never to be seen again (or so we thought!)
Hover the pointer over each image for more information about the idents.
From our YouTube channel, five compilations of BBC2 idents from 1997-2001 (some also include clips of idents from other BBC channels).
