Yesterday began life as UK History in October 2002, and took on its present name in March 2009. Although it concentrates chiefly on history documentaries, following the rebranding the channel expanded its remit to include other genres such as classic comedy and music.

Shown below are examples from Yesterday's second set of idents, introduced in July 2012.

A compilation of video clips of the idents on this page can be found at our YouTube channel.
