This montage of BBC1 Christmas idents since 1974 is a lovely festive nostalgia rush
When you were a kid it was always an especially exciting moment when BBC1 swapped its usual idents for a special Christmas version.
Each year it was different but it always meant the same thing – Christmas really was just round the corner.
Now Lewis Pringle has done a montage of every festive ident since 1974 and it’s a lovely rush of nostalgia.

Christmassy enough, yet?
You could teach a class on the changing media aesthetic with this

@Andrew_Wyld I love that some of these obviously cost a VAST amount of money yet others could cost less than £10 from a local Poundland.

Although Santa’s disembodied head rotating on a turntable seems unseasonably gruesome.

We’re with this person.
Xmas pudding along the map of the world is best. For me.

And just in case you’re wondering.
This is great, what’s the name of the tune though?

Carol of the Bells from The Carpenters album Christmas Portrait.
