BBC3 2008-2013

The blobs, probably BBC3's most popular feature, just made it to the channel's fifth birthday - but they met their demise only three days later. BBC3's revamp of 12th February 2008 was much more than a case of simply introducing a new set of graphics, however - this was an ambitious relaunch of the channel with a raft of new programming. The new idents featured little people living in a bizarre 'media world', and each featured a redesigned logo which fills with pink liquid.

At the start of this period there was a brief experiment with in-vision continuity, both from announcer Jose Vanders (see clips at the bottom of this page) and viewer-submitted videos.


In the same style as the main idents, these are some of the brief 'stings', or 'bumpers', that appeared between trailers during junctions, each lasting just a few seconds.

From our YouTube channel, a compilation of BBC3 idents, stings and in-vision continuity from 2008 onwards.
