BBC Scotland: 1991-1997

The Computer Originated World was replaced on Saturday 16 February 1991 by a new ‘Virtual globe’, designed by the Lambie-Nairn branding agency who had first made an impact with Channel 4′s original 1982 ident. The idents which were computer generated and had no soundtrack consisted of a figure ’1′ inside a rotating transparent globe surrounded by a swirling smokey atmosphere above the BBC’s corporate logo – the bold italic letters B B C within three rhomboids, above blue red and green flashes. The Network ident was “unveiled” on that week’s Going Live!, the Saturday morning magazine show on Children’s BBC at the time, by Philip Schofield and Sarah Greene, although the globe already officially debuted before then. BBC Scotland version appeared much later in the day around 5pm.
