 Two Little, two late | Ident
Prior to this the white BBC Two logo was just placed on the picture in the bottom centre of the screen, hence there was the problem that it became invisible if the background was also white (the text had to be made fl if used on promotions with a prominently white background).
BBC Two doesn’t have advertisements so it has no fl space to drop, but it had those brief animations before trailers which occupy time and aren’t essential for the smooth running of the channel, so their future was looking shaky from this viewpoint.
The downside of this is that BBC Two’s programme junctions start to look more like those of other channels, that is just the basic structure of a programme being followed by one or more promos followed by an ident, then the next programme.
